MONROE - The Good Lovelies will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Gunderson Stiles Concert Hall stage at the Monroe Arts Center, 1315 11th St.

The Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks (vocals, guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass), Kerri Ough (vocals, guitar, banjo, keyboard, bass) and Sue Passmore (vocals, guitar, bass, percussion), all of them best friends and refugees from solo careers. The Toronto-based trio, which entertains with tightly-polished, three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, constant instrument swapping, and feisty on-stage banter drawn from comedic adventures on the road, delivers melodies with a stage presence that keeps audience smiling.

Playing upright bass and providing backup vocals for The Good Lovelies' U.S. tour is Canadian musician, Steve Zsirai.

Lighthearted song-writing and buoyant dispositions have made the trio the darlings of the summer festival circuit, including spots at the storied Mariposa and Hillside festivals and the Montreal Jazz Festival. They have toured with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe and appeared on stages and in studios with Broken Social Scene, Kathleen Edwards and Jill Barber. In addition to five albums under their belts, they won New Emerging Artist at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards. In 2010, they received a prestigious Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots Album of the Year.

Reserved seat tickets are $25 or $20 for adults, and $10 for students 18 years and under. Tickets may be purchased in person at the box office, 1315 11th St.; by calling the Monroe Arts Center at 608-325-5700 or 888-596-1249; or online at
