Music City Roots

Many thanks to the crew at Music City Roots for a great time Wednesday night!

Here’s what Craig Havighurst had to say:

The seven members of Lulu Mae are smiling machines. With a couple of married couples, including Sarah Finley with her baby bump, and obviously close friends all jamming away with common purpose, the joy was infectious. Musically they put me in mind  a bit of the Black Lillies or The Whiskey Gentry. They work from a country core but they aren’t afraid of laying on electric energy. “Coraline” put Sarah and husband Joel out front in a folkier vein, and “The Fiction of Speed” (interesting title) layered on sonic surprises like melodica, ukulele and trumpet. But it was set closer “Memphis Woman,” a brand new single, that really showed what Lulu Mae can do. It’s punchy as hell with a satisfying Led Zeppy riff that answers the vocals.
