Larkin Poe features southern torchbearers, sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell. Rebecca sings lead vocals and is a multi-instrumentalist, she plays mandolin, banjo, piano and the guitar. Megan does harmony vocals and also known for her very cool and talented lap steel playing. The dynamic duo has been said to like models, sing like angels, and play like demons. They are known for their heavy electric riffs, slide guitar, southern blues and rocking ‘70s era sound.
The girls began their musical career in 2005 with their first band The Lovell Sisters and today they are currently burning up the festival circuit, as well as opening for acts like Keith Urban and Elvis Costello. They recently released their fourth studio album titled Venom & Faith on November 24, 2018, and the record reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Blues Chart.
This rocking cover of the delta blues classic “Rollin’ And Tumblin” is sung by modern blues and roots rock band Larkin Poe at the New York State Blues Festival in Syracuse, NY. The song dates to 1929 when it was first recorded by Hambone Willie Newbern and then later made famous by the Chicago blues legend Muddy Waters.
