With nine critically acclaimed releases, a #1 single, a JUNO Award, and a devoted fanbase blanketing the globe, roots-pop combo The Good Lovelies are among Canada’s brightest musical lights. The hardworking trio of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough, and Susan Passmore — guitar-wielding songwriters all, and queens of the goose bump–raising three-part harmony — enter 2020 at full steam, with plans to write and record new material, reduce their carbon footprint via multiple green initiatives, and to build on their reputation as electrifying performers with extensive touring, culminating in their highly anticipated annual seasonal concerts.
Juno Award-winning group announce their 2020 Forest Tour! Kicking off in Edmonton on April 2nd the tour will stop in many Canadian Provinces as well as Washington State. For each album or download card sold at these shows, Caroline, Kerri and Susan will plant two trees in Burk’s Falls, ON, an area dear to the band’s heart. The band will return to their roots as the core trio, Caroline, Kerri & Sue alongside one of Canada's premiere guitarists and lap steel players Christine Bougie.
The Good Lovelies Forest campaign launched with great success last winter during their annual Christmas tour, resulting in 2,300 trees being contributed to the forest plan, and is part of a sweeping green scheme touching every part of the Good Lovelies’ business model.
“We have become increasingly conscious of our carbon footprint as a band and it’s challenging because we have to travel for a living,” Brooks says. “Tree planting is a great way to offset emissions." "It gives the tour an umbrella, and people are really connecting to it," shares Ough. "We don’t know what the final number of trees will be by the end of the tour in June but we’re hoping to get as high as 5,000 trees total.”
And as Passmore explains, concertgoers attending the 2020 Forest Tour — also featuring long-time Good Lovelies collaborator, ace guitarist and lap steel player Christine Bougie — have additional opportunities to reduce waste while pondering everyone’s impact on the planet. “We are constantly brainstorming what else we can do to help the environment, and especially, new ways of sharing our music, of packaging things, so we are not creating so much waste, particularly plastic waste.
Environmental Initiative: Like many organizations, the Rogue is concerned about the environment. We are doing our best to separate and recycle wherever we can. We use compostable cups at all shows, and charge 25 cents for all cups (beer, wine and coffee). We encourage people to reuse their cups if they return to the bar for another beverage. We also invite you to bring your own cup or glass. Beer drinkers can choose to consume right out of the can. These may seem like small things, but they are an important contribution to cleaning up our planet.
The Rogue Folk Club is pleased to provide great Sponsorship Opportunities for all our shows. For a nominal cost, individuals or businesses can sponsor any of our shows and reap a number of benefits - free tickets, reserved table, recognition on literature, our web site and at the concerts.
