MAIN STAGE BANDS
JUNE 17, 2017 | 1:30pm-9:00pm
Called a “swaggeringly bad girl bluesy rock band” by music media, Larkin Poe, a sibling duo out of Georgia, will headline the 12th annual Honesdale Roots & Rhythm Music & Arts Festival on June 17th. Also dubbed “a sister act with staying power” by NPR, these two ladies “should have the Roots crowd feeling the beat and off their feet by night’s end,” says Randy Kohrs, music committee chairperson. The two sisters, Rebecca and Megan Lovell have racked up a season of touring highlights, including being part of the All-Star backing band during the 2017 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute concert honoring Tom Petty in February. The pair have appeared on Conan O’Brien’s late night show and been featured in Guitar Player Mag, Acentric Mag and Pure Volume.
BRUCE KATZ BAND
Bruce Katz is a four time (2008, 2009, 2010, 2015) Nominee for the Blues Music Award (W.C. Handy Award) for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year,” selected by the Blues Foundation of Memphis, TN. While Blues is a very important part of his music, Bruce's music has more angles and influences, occupying a unique space where blues, "soul-jazz", jam-band rock, and all aspects of Americana Music collide into a style of original music all his own.
NO GOOD SISTER
In late 2012, a mom, a teacher and a waitress gathered in a small Philadelphia apartment specifically to hear what their voices might sound like when joined together in three-part harmony. By the end of the night, Maren Sharrow, Jess McDowell and Meaghan Kyle knew they had something special in the effortless way their three very different voices blended together in a harmony that was both timeless and exciting. No Good Sister was born. This spring, they released their first full-length studio album, You Can Love Me. Mike “Slo-Mo” Brenner (the Low Road, Marah, Magnolia Electric Co), pulls double duty as producer and lap steel player. The album features musicians from some of Philly’s favorite bands, including Get the Led Out and John Train.
