Just announced: Georgia acoustic group the Lovell Sisters return to the Charleston Music Hall on Sat. Sept. 5. The group's enthusiastic and sparkly set last year at the venue was a Piccolo Spoleto highlight. Fiddler/singer Jessica Lovell, dobro player/singer Megan Lovell, and mandolinist/singer Rebecca Lovell plan to bring a mix of originals, bluegrass and country standards, and reworkings of blues and pop songs.
Last year, backed by additional guitarist Matt Wingate (a MerleFest guitar pickin' champ) and upright bassist Andy Nall (a longtime Lovell family friend from the hometown of Calhoun, Ga.), the Sisters plaed plenty of newly-written material and a few gems off their album When Forever Rolls Around (Jessica said, "We'd like to do one from our first album ... well, it's out only album so far, but that just sounds better!"). This time around, they'll have plenty of new material from the new album Time to Grow as well.
