NEWS: Good Lovelies Receive Juno Nod and Announce new Canadian Dates!




 It is clear that the Good Lovelies have added another special album to their discography. Their charming 2011 release, Let The Rain Fall, perked up the ears of fans and critics alike, and earned them a Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year in December of last year. Proving once again that they are a force to be reckoned with in the Canadian music scene, the Lovelies have been nominated for the Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Group, for Let The Rain Fall. With barely enough time to process this exciting news, the girls will be back on the old highway in March for Canadian dates in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan (dates listed below).

This is the second time the girls have been recognized in this Juno category, with their debut full-length album, Good Lovelies, picking up the Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Group Award in 2010. Let The Rain Fall is the third full-length offering from vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore. It is an ode to camraderie, with equal parts city and country, highway and home, wistfulness and sass. With the release of the album, the girls hit the road, touring nearly constantly through 2011. They trekked back and forth across their home country, and headed into international territory, visiting Australia, the UK, Europe, and the US. After making a quick pit-stop at home, the girls will be back on the road in March, doing what they do best – performing.

Their breath-taking three-part harmonies, constant instrument swapping, and witty on-stage banter have made them an honest and endearing voice in the Canadian music scene. They have become fixtures on the summer festival circuit with spots on the Mariposa and Hillside Festivals, Montreal Jazz Festival, and a number of others across North America. They have also toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Café, and have shared the stage with the likes of Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards, and Jill Barber.

Don’t miss your chance to catch the Good Lovelies on the road this March!
