|The Good Lovelies perform in Ramsey Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 8 p.m.|
The Good Lovelies are not your run-of-the-mill all-girl band. Since their first performance in 2006, the band has been making waves across Canada and the United States playing countless house concerts, festivals and coffeehouses. Part folk-roots, part western swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies and convulsively funny repartee drawn from comedic adventures on the road. They will be performing their Christmas album “Under the Mistletoe” at Fermilab on Saturday, Dec. 8, as part of the Fermilab Arts Series.
The trio consists of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends and refugees from solo careers. In 2010 they won the Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots Album of the Year and the New Emerging Artist Award at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.
“Under the Mistletoe,” which received positive reviews in the Globe & Mail and Toronto’s NOW magazine, includes three original Christmas songs as well as a number of old classics.
The Good Lovelies will perform at the family-friendly time of 8 p.m. in Ramsey Auditorium. Tickets are $23 for adults and $12 for attendees 18 and under. For more information, call the Fermilab Arts Series box office at 630-840-ARTS or visit the Users’ Office in Wilson Hall, first floor. It is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (closed for lunch).
