One of the top bands on the American roots music circuit, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys created a huge impact when they made their UK debut earlier this year as one of the main visiting attractions at Shetland Folk Festival.
Widely regarded as one of the most outstanding acts of the event, they return once more for appearances at several major UK summer festivals – and tour dates in Ireland.
With roots in the Great Lakes State of Michigan, it's been said there is something to please all tastes in their live performances – praised as real passionate affairs that stir the blood and exhilarate - from bluesy works of wonder to blistering bluegrass beauty.
Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys are renowned for their fresh approach to the American roots genres which are explored and confidently conquered.
The media got excited when they began to release their albums in Europe. “Intoxicating” was how Folkwords summed them up, while Maverick magazine said they played “uplifting rootsy acoustic music of the finest quality.”
Reviewing their brand new release, Folk radio UK said: “There’s plenty to be shiny and happy about here.” AmericanaUK said it was “exciting – with a pulse and rhythm that sets them apart.”
This year the band will appear at a number of prestigious UK events including HebCeltFest and Poole Bluegrass Festival in Dorset.
