Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys
One of the most exciting emerging bands on the American roots music circuit, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys have a fresh approach which meshes Appalachian tradition with rootsy Michigan vigour. It’s been said there is something for everyone in live performances –– from bluesy works of wonder to blistering bluegrass beauty.
Since issuing their second album ‘Release Your Shrouds’ in 2012, the band has been on the road almost non-stop all over the USA. It was the ‘Here Between’ EP that finally got them the level of attention they deserved in Europe with a huge amount of radio exposure and positive reviews.
With their great vocal harmonies and tight-knit playing, it’s no wonder they were described by Folkwords as “intoxicating”. They describe themselves as “a finger pickin', harmony slingin', tight knit family fashion conglomeration who show no signs of slowing down”!
The band consist of Lindsay Lou on guitar and clawhammer banjo, husband Joshua Rilko on mandolin, Mark Lavengood on dobro and PJ George on bass.
