Larkin Poe with Moses Jones & The Dirty Southern Soul
Larkin Poe with Moses Jones & The Dirty Southern Soul at Booth Playhouse
There are some artists who walk out on stage and you can tell they’re having an absolute blast from the first notes until the final cymbal crash. Larkin Poe exemplifies that perfectly. The band has had a big year – touring with Keith Urban, Elvis Costello and Bob Seger, as well as topping the Billboard blues chart with their independently released album, Venom & Faith.
So, while the band has been on the road constantly since June, you’d never know it by their joy and on-stage exuberance. Sister Rebecca and Megan Lovell brought listeners to their church of blues and soul on Friday night at the Booth Playhouse.
They thrilled with blistering riffs, wowed with family harmonies and got the whole room moving with stellar songwriting. While Rebecca first made a name for herself as a mandolin player, her guitar player conveys more emotion and style – especially paired with her outstanding vocals. Megan may appear to be the quiet one on stage, but lets her lap steel do the talking.
The band’s set included plenty of originals with a smattering of covers, including Lead Belly’s “Black Betty” and “Preachin’ Blues” by Son House. Whether they’re on their own or touring with a bigger name – don’t miss them.
