Thursday: A musical holiday celebration with Good Lovelies
If a musical celebration is your way of getting into the holiday spirit, then you won’t want to miss Christmas with Good Lovelies – this Thursday at Laurentian University’s Fraser Auditorium in Sudbury. Doors open at 7pm, and tickets are available at: www.nlfb.ca/tickets, Jett Landry Music (Lasalle Blvd.), and Old Rock Coffee (212 Minto St.). Special ticket pricing is available for students/youth.
Good Lovelies are a Juno winning folk-pop trio, known for their infectious three-part harmonies, witty onstage banter, and heartfelt songwriting. They will be on tour with a brand-new Christmas record titled Evergreen. It’s been ten years, and ten Christmas tours since Good Lovelies released their first Christmas album Under the Mistletoe. In celebration, they have decided to capture many of the songs they have been performing over the past 10 years on this new album. Included are three brand new songs for the holidays, written by the Good Lovelies, that they can’t wait to share with Sudbury audiences.
Evergreen just came out last month and has already amassed glowing reviews. Reviewer Martin Noakes wrote for Greatdarkwonder.com: “With Evergreen, The Good Lovelies will have you dancing in the aisles (party, church, grocery store – it doesn’t matter) with these great traditional and original tunes…I find myself unable to stop playing these new tunes here in mid-November, and will easily return to the album in the spring, summer, and autumn too,” (greatdarkwonder.com).
Good Lovelies first united in 2006 for a one-off performance and has since compiled a catalogue of studio albums, EPs, a live album and a Christmas collection. They have toured extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, UK, and Australia and have earned a Juno Award (2010), a Juno nomination (2012) and four Canadian Folk Music Awards along the way.
The concert takes place this Thursday, December 5th at Laurentian University’s Fraser Auditorium in Sudbury. For more information visit nlfb.ca or call 705-674-5512.
