Audiences all over North America are falling in love with the funny, upbeat Good Lovelies. Winners of two major awards at the 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards — Vocal Group of the Year & Ensemble of the Year for the album “Live at Revolution.” The Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada, the United States, and now in the UK and Australia.
The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.
Since joining forces in 2006, and quitting day jobs in 2008, their tireless rain or shine outlook and undeniable mutual respect have helped the trio weather years of constant touring. Light-hearted songwriting and irresistibly buoyant dispositions have made them the darlings of the summer festival circuit, and brought them through countless theatres, folk clubs and house concerts. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Café and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber.
