Lovely show at Gum San
Canadian group The Good Lovelies has included Ararat in its latest tour of Australia.
The group will perform in Gum San Great Hall for Ararat Live on Saturday night.
Ararat Live’s Rob Shea said The Good Lovelies played to a packed crowd in 2014, so organisers booked a larger venue for the band’s return visit.
“We’re really excited to have them back and we’re sure they will be very well received by Ararat Live regulars and newcomers,” he said.
“The Good Lovelies – Kerri Ough, Sue Passmore and Caroline Brooks – are immensely talented vocalists and songwriters in their own right. However, it’s their voices interwoven in harmony – powerful and pure, organic and inspiring – that elevates them from impressive to peerless.”
Double-bass player Marie-josee Dandeneau and drummer David Ross Mcdonald will also be part of the band.
Throughout the course of a decade-plus career, The Good Lovelies has covered plenty of stylistic ground, adding tinges of pop, roots, jazz, and even hip-hop to its country-folk core at various points.
The trio first united in 2006 for a one-off performance and has since compiled a catalogue of four studio albums, a pair of EPS, a live album and Christmas collection.
“Their upcoming collection offers a perfect balance between a more modern production style and the wholesome musical influences that have made them a household name over the years,” Mr Shea said.
“The Good Lovelies released their latest album Shapeshifters late in 2017 and will be showcasing some of the new songs for Ararat Live.” The Ararat show will start at 8pm. Tickets cost $25 an adult and are available online at www.trybooking.com or at the door.
Mr Shea said Ararat Live would like to acknowledge the ongoing support of Ararat Rural City Council, which helped secure Gum San for the show.
