Larkin Poe (USA)
Taking a modern interpretation on traditional blues music, the Lovell sister's performance is like a breath of fresh air to the blues scene!
After a sell-out run in 2019, blues sisters Larkin Poe are back to play even bigger venues in both Melbourne and Sydney. Taking a modern interpretation on traditional blues music, Larkin Poe create a unique brand of gritty, southern-fried blues, roots ‘n’ roll. Rebecca Lovell’s voice is full, comforting and charismatic as is seamlessly blends into her big sister Megan’s gospel-like backing vocals.
Both performing as multi-instrumentalists, it’s Megan that often steals the show, providing the perfect balance with some cracking lap steal solos; their performances that have garnered plenty of high-profile admirers such as Elvis Costello, Keith Urban, Bob Seger and Russell Crowe. In the extraordinary year that was 2020, Larkin Poe continued to be extraordinary, releasing not one, but two albums; ‘Self Made Man’ in June and ‘Kindred Spirits’ in November, the latter housing a fine collection of stripped-back versions of classics and new covers.
