Larkin Poe – sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell – have been on a slow burn towards stardom for the last decade. With a slew of EPs and long players behind them, the bluesy sisters picked up a Grammy nod for their 2018 release, Venom & Faith, and have toured the world over. The duo has returned with a new record, Self Made Man, which they self-produced and released on their own Tricki-Woo label.
Hailing from Atlanta but now calling Nashville home, the Lovell sisters pen songs steeped in Southern musical tradition, from pulling from acoustic folk to gospel and rocking blues. Trail Mix is happy to feature “Keep Diggin'” from Larkin Poe’s new release.
Yonder Mountain String Band, who recently appeared on our weekly Trail Mix Live series, return to the mix with their take on the John Hartford classic “Holding,” a long time staple in their live show and their contribution to the recent tribute to Hartford, On The Road: A Tribute To John Hartford.
Also featured this month are tunes from jamband legends moe., acoustic icon Doc Watson, and eclectic roots upstarts The Texas Gentlemen.
Returning to Trail Mix this month are some long time friends. Samantha Crain, John Craigie, Corb Lund, Grayson Capps, Chris Stamey, Seth Walker, Peter Himmelman, The Greyboy Allstars, and Andrew Scotchie & The River Rats are all back with brand new tunes.
Trail Mix is also excited to feature tunes from The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers, John Fusco, Distant Cousins, The Cassell Brothers, Les Nuby, Cinder Well, Grace Joyner, Andy Baker, Jenny Reynolds, Kristen Grainger & True North, and The Collect Pond.
Remember to be safe out there, folks. Get outside and play and takes these tunes along with you. And, during your adventures, swing by a record store and pick up an album or two from these incredible artists. Seek them out online, take in their live from home concerts, and send them a tip.
