Dean Genth and Dr. Gary Swenson proudly present The Good Lovelies at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 6th, 2018. This presentation is part of the 2018-2019 Performing Arts and Leadership Series.
The Good Lovelies are one of Canada’s premier folk bands. They are funny and upbeat – with just a pinch of sass. With tight vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters, this six-piece band will have you humming along, laughing, and full of Christmas cheer by the show’s end.
Still merry after many years, The Good Lovelies are excited for their 12th annual Christmas tour. What better way to celebrate the season than with classic holiday and winter selections, timeless and original material polished to a warm and welcoming glow? All of them best friends, the Ontario-based trio relies on impeccable vocals, winsome songwriting, and on-stage banter drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road and at home.
Accompanying The Good Lovelies (Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough, and Susan Passmore) is their band of merry men – Steve Zsirai on upright bass, Robbie Grunwald on keys, and Mark Mariash on drums. This six-piece will have you humming along, laughing, and full of mirth by the show’s end.
The band first united in 2006 for a one-off performance and has since compiled a catalogue of studio albums, Eps, a live album, and a Christmas collection. They have toured extensively across Canada, the US, Europe, UK, and Australia and have earned a June Award (2010), a Juno Nomination (2012), and four Canadian Folk Music Awards along the way. Their latest release, Shapeshifters, was released in February to much acclaim.
