Lovely show at Gum San

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.try­book­ 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.
