Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys/The Blue Ribbon Bluegrass Band

When: Sun., Dec. 9, 8:30 p.m. 2012

This bluegrass band combines upbeat, easy to dance to songs with slower, more melodious songs on their new album Release Your Shrouds. According to lead singer-songwriter Lindsay Lou Rilko, many of the songs on their new album are based on true stories and experience (and that includes the songs about her aunts robbing banks and her grandpas making moonshine). Rilko incorporates all of her life experiences into the band’s songs, and she even includes a song about her study-abroad experience in Ecuador. She sings “Querida Tierra,” the sixth track on Release Your Shrouds, in Spanish but has a definite American folk sound, which shows off her unique approach. Expect this performance to include a mix of original songs, American traditional folk songs and Beatles covers. (Abbey Christopher)
