Shovels and Rope to Perform at the Hi-Tone Café Friday Night

Shovels and Rope

Hi-Tone Cafe

Friday, Feb. 8

8 pm, $10 Admission

It’s been a big year for the great Charleston, South Carolina duo Shovels and Rope. They released O’ Be Joyful last year to nothing short of universal acclaim, and last week, they made their television debut on Late Show with David Letterman. Yet, success has not come easy for the husband and wife team. Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst spent years releasing solo albums and playing the club circuits in Charleston, but it seems they have found their niche together, which is apparent on O’ Be Joyful. Their harmonies and songwriting have the edge of seasoned veterans, but they keep it loose enough to maintain a front porch, Tennessee-whiskey-sippin’, everybody-grab-something-and-use-it-as-an-instrument atmosphere. It’s infectious and fun, but strong enough to set them apart from other acts in the field. One listen to “Keeper” or “Kemba’s Got the Cabbage Moth Blues” or “Birmingham” can conjure so many styles and singers that it feels as if you've been listening to this band forever.

If you don’t have O’Be Joyful yet, go get it, listen to it, dig it, and then come see them perform it this Friday night at the Hi-Tone Café. The show starts at 8 o’clock, and tickets are ten dollars. Michael and Cary will bring hope to your hearts for the future of music, and that is something we all need.
