In addition to having one of the coolest band names in bluegrass, Michigan’s Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys have a distinctive contemporary sound.
The band is fueled by the powerhouse vocals of Lindsay Lou Rilko, with hot picking provided by her husband Josh Rilko on mandolin, Keith Billik on banjo, Spencer Cain on bass, and Mark Lavengood on resonator guitar.
Two new live videos of the Flatbellys in action have just been released, which show them running the gamut from old time to traditional bluegrass, as well as their own original music.
First up is Pass The Whiskey, a song from their current release, Release Your Shrouds, followed by an energetic version of the old chestnut, Angeline The Baker.
And then their take on Bill Monroe’s I’m Going Back To Old Kentucky.
Keep up with Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys online.
