On Wednesday June 26th, WagonWheel Presents… is delighted to welcome Canada’s Good Lovelies back to Sheffield. The trio return to The Greystones to promote their brand new album Live At Revolution, the follow up to 2011′s Juno nominated Let The Rain Fall. Expect divine three part harmonies, instrument swapping and bluegrass tinged country folk described as a ‘sonic sunshower’. Plus support. Advance tickets priced at £10 are available from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/209246 and over the bar at the venue (12-6pm) or entry on the night will be £12. Doors open 7.30pm for an 8pm start.


***GOOD LOVELIES***

Funny and upbeat, with just a pinch of sass, the Good Lovelies‘ textbook three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping and witty on-stage banter have enlivened the folk music landscape since they joined forces in 2006 for their first show at Toronto’s funky Gladstone Hotel.

How the Good Lovelies (Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore) got together is a bit of a mystery: Sue remembers meeting her band mates during a limbo competition, Caroline thinks they met at a chess tournament, but Kerri is convinced they first crossed paths during a bar fight… Whatever the story may be, the ladies immediately realized they had something special, so they hit the road on a mission to charm Canadian audiences coast to coast.

Their tireless rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have helped the trio weather years of constant touring. With jaunts to Australia, the UK and the US in their 2011 schedule, the Good Lovelies’ road-tested tenacity will bring them further afield than ever before.

Lighthearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer festival circuit, including spots at the storied Mariposa and Hillside Festivals and the Montreal Jazz Festival. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.

In addition to their acclaimed holiday album, Under the Mistletoe (2009), which showcases old and new seasonal tunes (including three original songs), the Good Lovelies’ self-titled full-length album (also released in 2009) proved their blithe brand of folk music has year-round appeal. With this record, the Good Lovelies won New Emerging Artist at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. In 2010, this same album received a Juno for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year.

Let the Rain Fall, their third full-length album, was recently nominated for the 2012 Juno for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year. With equal parts city and country, highway and home, wistfulness and sass, the Good Lovelies’ good humour and self-assurance shines through from the toe-tapping start of “Made for Rain” to the sweet final notes in the French-flecked “Mrs. T.” In between, you’ll hear reflections on urban imperfections with “Backyard”, straight-up love songs like “Best I Know” and upbeat numbers like “Kiss Me in the Kitchen.”

The album, like the Good Lovelies, has a universal appeal, sure to please not just their fellow Canadians, but those south of the border and across the pond too.

Let The Rain Fall, say the Good Lovelies, confident that bright and breezy days lie ahead.

This'll be on Wednesday night. Billy Barstow will open the show.

***WILLIAM BARSTOW***

William Barstow has been recording and playing live throughout the country for the past 5 years with The Dead Delta and now with The Ruby Jacks. Throughout this period he has complied a selection of songs that don’t fit into the framework of a hardened rock band but require a more intimate and spacious setting. His bluesy/folk solo material has been compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley and Neil Young.

This is tomorrow night! Live music kicks off shortly after 8pm with Will Barstow. There are a few tickets left here: http://www.wegottickets.com/wagonwheelpresents where you can still save yourself a bit on the door price though you will be able to pay on the night.
