Lovell Sisters wow audience at IBMA

The IBMA showcase schedule kicked off with some fine but understated performances from Sweet Sunny South, Above the Town, and the Alan Munde Gazette. The night's major infusion of energy came from The Lovell Sisters, a band we first saw here last year in an unofficial showcase and then again at this summer's Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.

The Lovells are three teenaged sisters--Rebecca (15), Jessica (20), and Megan (17) left to right in the photo)--and two supporting pickers from Georgia who have only grown more assured as they've become more accustomed to performing. ASCAP executive Dan Keen, who introduced the band as "three Georgia peaches," said to expect some big news about the Lovells in the next few weeks.

I'd not be surprised to see the Lovell Sisters Band take the bluegrass market by storm and possibly cross over to mainstream country. They are certainly photogenic, but there's no doubt they also have the chops.
