Townsend Center Welcomes the Good Lovelies
Funny and upeat, with just a pinch of sass, The Good Lovelies have invigorated the folk music scene since they joined forces. Aptly named, The Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, best friends and refugees form solo careers. Part roots and part Western Swing, the Toronto based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever song writing, and witty banter drawn from a seemingly endless string of hilarious adventures. Their tireless rain or shine outlook has helped them weather jaunts to Australia, the UK and far beyond. Ticket information can be found online.
