Lois and the Lantern

Friday 3:30PM @ The Lyric - The Porch Stage

Gals. Strings. Harmonies.

On a dusty dead-end road just outside of city limits, a group of women met monthly to escape the world and find themselves in music . From one of those laughter-and-whiskey-filled jams, both the legend of Lois and the Lantern and the band were born. Founded by members Mary Merritt and Theresa Brodzinski, Lois became complete when Saja Butler and Tara Sparks joined the band in 2014. The musical combination of four very different personalities is a full-spectrum of styles and influences that is anything but your typical string band. A sonic parfait that begins with a foundation of funky uke bass, layered with punk-laced mandolin, sexed-up banjo, and folk-grass guitar, topped off with sublime vocal harmonies, Lois and the Lantern is a sweet confection for your ears.

Lois and the Lantern released a full-length studio album Sounds Like Livin'  in late 2021, a follow-up to thier debut EP Secret Compound released in 2018
