PRLog - Jul. 22, 2011 - CARY, N.C. -- PineCone is honored to present Larkin Poe, a duo of soul singing, songwriting sisters and past members of The Lovell Sisters, as part of the Cary Arts Center Dedication Cermony! PineCone partners with the Town of Cary to provide part of the entertainment for the Center's official dedication on Saturday, Aug. 13. Larkin Poe will perform beginning at 7:30 p.m. The dedication includes a full day of activities and performances beginning at 9 a.m., and all of the day's events are free and open to the public!

For the past five years Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe (named for their great-great-great grandfather) have been captivating audiences around the world with their insightful lyrics, magnetic presence, and dazzling instrumental virtuosity.

They deliver an innovative fusion of newgrass, country, and folk, all with tight harmonies and outstanding musicianship. Rebecca was the youngest contestant and first female to win the Merlefest International Mandolin Competition; both she and Megan have been clasically trained. The Lovell Sisters won NPR's National Teen Talent Competition in 2005 and have been featured on TBS' Storyline. Their second CD, Time To Grow, was produced by acclaimed Nashville producer Mark Bright (Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood).

NoDepression.com says: "Larkin Poe brings together emotional expressiveness, beautiful melodies, technical mastery, and tasteful restraint in a way that's tremendously compelling." Larkin Poe picks up where The Lovell Sisters left off in January 2010. Larkin Poe released their debut EP, Spring, on February 17, 2010, which marked part one of an ambitious project to record and release four seasonally themed EPs in 2010: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. All four EPs are now available. Their music stretches many genre boundaries, incorporating elements of folk, Americana, country, & pop. In addition to Rebecca and Megan, Larkin Poe includes Knoxville-based musicians Daniel Kimbro (bass), Chad Melton (drums), and Mike Seal (electric guitar).

From the stages of the Grand Ole Opry, Bonaroo and Telluride to touring with Brandi Carlile and the Indigo Girls, as well as collaborating with Elvis Costello, these chameleon performers continue to impress and mature, attracting attention from music lovers and celebrities alike. In the words of Elvis Costello, they are "already gifted as instrumentalists and, having a head start on the rest of us with the unique power and beauty of sibling harmony in their vocal blend, their songwriting has leapt forward and now surprises and delights in equal measure."
