Today I want to present another concert from NPR that I have listened to recently – a concert with the Lovell Sisters. The Lovell Sisters stopped playing together as a family band by the end of 2009 when Jessica Lovell went to the collage and married. Rebecca Lovell (mandolin) and Megan Lovell (dobro, guitar) continued as the duo Larkin Poe since then and have already made their first CD.
The following concert of the Lovell Sisters is available at NPR:
The Lovell Sisters On Mountain Stage
The talented trio featured Jessica on fiddle, Megan on dobro and Rebecca on mandolin, with all three doing vocal duty. They performed their final concert together in January, but Rebecca and Megan Lovell continue as a duo in their new band, Larkin Poe.
In this set on Mountain Stage, The Lovell Sisters perform two songs from Time to Grow: “In My Time of Dyin’ ” and the title track, along with covers of “Teardrop,” written by Cocteau Twins singer-songwriter Elizabeth Fraser, and “Bleeding Heart” by Jimi Hendrix.
I had posted some videos of the Lovell Sisters some time ago. And I have made a playlist from a set of youtube videos with a complete concert of the Lovell Sisters in Philadephia.
