ABOUT LEE PENN SKY AND THE REFUGEES

ClumsyLovers

This week’s Alive After Five headliner: The Clumsy Lovers
Go Listen Boise local opener: Dan Costello

ABOUT THE CLUMSY LOVERS

The Clumsy Lovers have brought their mix of fiddle and banjo-fuelled, bluegrassified Celtic rock to North American audiences for over a decade. With more than 2500 performances under their belts, their high-energy shows have worn out dance floors and created a loyal following in 49 states and across their homeland of Canada. Their spontaneous forays into musical mayhem can only be experienced in person, and after years of relentless touring the Lovers feel most at home on a stage — a stage that has been shared with the likes of Old Crow Medicine Show, Darius Rucker, Gourds, Leftover Salmon, Ani DiFranco, Gaelic Storm, Taylor Swift, The Young Dubliners and hundreds more.
