Blazing hot Michigan roots ensemble Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys return with their rapid-fire picking, stop-and-go bass lines, and steamy vocals from the leading lady.

Having taken the Shetland Folk Festival and HebCeltFest by storm, their headline show at last year’s Celtic Connections made them the talk of the town. Mandolinist Joshua Rilko picks with precision then slams into speedy power chords, dobro player Mark Lavengood is remarkably deft at matching melody lines with quick responses, and the bass lines from PJ George form the structure of the songs. Lindsay Lou has the kind of voice you can get lost in. One part jazz singer, effortlessly transitioning octaves, one part blues shouter, soaring over the band like a clarion call, and one part folk singer, rousing them all together in song.

“I’m convinced I have seen the most affectingly expressive singer since Amy Winehouse” Tim Chipping, fRoots Magazine
