The Lied To’s
April 28 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$15 - $18
The Lied To’s are Susan Levine and Doug Kwartler, two Massachusetts-based singer-songwriters who joined musical forces in 2014, released their self-titled debut cd at the legendary Club Passim in February 2015, and have been playing together ever since. Taking their name from the revered Everly Brothers song, “When Will I Be Loved,” they collaborate to put the challenges of relationships squarely under their musical microscope with a formidable blend of folk, rock, and country-tinged music. Levine’s voice is somewhere between Dolly Parton and Maria Muldaur: it carries an edgy passion with a wailing “want my man” quality. Kwartler has one of those John Mellencamp-ish, longing, honky-tonk voices that make women weak in the knees. But listener beware, with these trademark harmonies, the The Lied To’s might just welcome you in and break your heart. Discounted pre-show tickets are available for $15 or are $18 at the door.
