After saying goodbye to the bluegrass phenomenon, The Lovell Sisters, in early 2010, the sibling duo of Rebecca and Megan Lovell formed Larkin Poe, a nod to the legend of their great-great-great grandfather.
With their band, the 20-something folk rockers tell stories of life experiences through music. Since its creation, Larkin Poe recorded and released four seasonally-themed albums, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, in late 2010.
The girls, who have collaborated with Elvis Costello and have played at the Grand Ole Opry with their former group, are now touring the country as Larkin Poe, introducing their fans to a new sound and energy.

In addition to their ode to Andy Griffith, Barney Fife, Opie and friends, The Grascals have joined country legends, Dolly Parton and Hank Williams, Jr. on tour, performing their blend of innovative bluegrass and country music. They have also appeared on several national television shows including The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and CBS’s Early Show.
