The latest run kicks off on March 1 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder,CO. See below for itinerary. After the U.S. dates with Costello, Larkin Poe will head to Europe for a headline tour.
“We first met Elvis Costello by a stroke of luck at the world renowned festival, Merlefest, in 2010 and he’s been a huge supporter ever since. Over the past five years, we’ve been honored to go on the road with him – from the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, to the storied Circus Krone in Munich,Germany,” says lead singer/guitarist Rebecca Lovell, who also plays mandolin and violin.
“Making music and harmonizing onstage with a living legend is simultaneously one of the scariest, most exhilarating, and most intuitive things we’ve ever done as sisters – it has strengthened our own musical bond. Elvis Costello is one of the most inexhaustible artists we’ve ever encountered – he pulls the stops out every night. Our respect for him as an artist and as a person is without bounds!” adds her sister, Megan Lovell, who plays lapsteel and dobro and also sings.
