The Clumsy Lovers  

Friday, June 2, at the Bottleneck.

If your idea of a party includes banjos, fiddles and drunken Canadians, then Vancouver's Clumsy Lovers are throwing your kind of hootenanny. The Lovers mash together progressive country, traditional rock and traditional bluegrass with a sly wink, a keen sense of the absurd and an observant eye trained on the Celtic roots of the music of the American South. With just two official releases and a handful of self-released recordings to their credit, singer and bassist Chris Jonat, guitarist and harmonica player Trevor Rogers, fiddler Andrea Lewis, banjo and mandolin player Jason Homey and drummer Gord Robert play with an affability and free-spirited goofiness that suggest they've been sitting together on the same sultry porch for decades.
