Lo-Fi Dolly Album Release Show
Featuring Sara Beck, Lauren Lucas, & Kimberly Quinn at the One World Coffeehouse
Saturday, June 17, 2023 | 7 to 9pm
UUCC’s own Sara Beck returns with her musical collaborators Lauren Lucas and Kimberly Quinn to wow us with performances from their new album — Lo-Fi Dolly — an album of reimagined country classics, including songs by Dolly, Emmylou, Ronnie Milsap, Vince Gill, Roseanne Cash, Willie Nelson, and others. You won’t want to miss this special album release show!
Sara Beck and Lauren Lucas have been individually writing and recording music for over 20 years. You’ve seen them on the road touring with Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Old Dominion, Kevin Costner & Modern West, The Bacon Bros. (Kevin and Michael), and Kenny Chesney — just to name a few. They’ve graced listening room stages from The Bluebird to Gruene Hall to The Birchmere. They’ve garnered Academy of Country Music and Tony Award nominations, as well as song placements on the ABC network and the History Channel, both as artists and songwriters for other recording artists — including Danielle Peck, Jaida Dreyer, and Risa Binder.
Their love for old country music and classic singer-songwriters is one of the things that brought the two together. In the early 2000’s, they formed an all-women, Nashville-based music collective with several other talented singer/songwriters playing the country standards they grew up on. They called themselves The Honky Tonk Angels, and together they brought heartbreaking harmonies and a hefty dose of sisterhood to bars, weddings, and bonfires all over middle Tennessee. Along the way, they co-wrote songs together that each released separately, including “Come On” (Beck/Chisolm/Lucas) and “Burning Down the Dark” (Beck/Jones/Lucas).
Now – inspired by the “Trio” albums by Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris — Sara and Lauren have joined forces with another original Honky Tonk Angel — Kimberly Quinn — to release an album of some of the very tunes that ignited their friendship way back when. In Spring of 2023, Sara Beck, Lauren Lucas and Kimberly Quinn will release “Lo Fi Dolly,” an album of reimagined country classics, including songs by Dolly, Emmylou, Ronnie Milsap, Vince Gill, Roseanne Cash, Willie Nelson and others.
Having toured together for years on and off, Lauren and Sara are looking forward to bringing the flavor of Lo-Fi Dolly and their original songs to a stage near you in the spring and summer of 2023. Live onstage together, the two women swap stories, guitars, snare drums, and stompboxes – taking the audience on a musical ride that is both intimate and sweeping. Their harmonies are tight, and their affection for each other and the art of making music take center stage. This is a show not to be missed.
