New JGT Series: “Spotlight On…Larkin Poe”



In this new series, contributor/photographer Brad Jeter expands JGT’s scope and puts the “Spotlight On” a talented group from North Georgia.

JGT Editor Bob Bakert: Please find our first installment of “Spotlight On” featuring Brad Jeter… You all know Brad as one of JGT’s guitar reviewers and photographers. Brad has an extensive background as a player, producer, and all-around fan of great guitar playing and performing.  We have asked Brad to help us to expand our scope with articles that our base would enjoy… We could rename the magazine “Express Yourself Through Thoughtful Improvisation and Creative Guitar Playing Today” or EYTTI&CGPT but, you see the problem…

Growing up in North Georgia, sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell honed their skills as musicians and performers as the Lovell Sisters, a bluegrass group they formed with their older sister, Jessica. In 2009, Jessica left the band and Rebecca and Megan renamed themselves, Larkin Poe.

The band has matured over the past decade into a powerhouse combining the Blues, Americana, and lingering tinges of their bluegrass beginnings.

Rebecca, guitarist and lead vocalist, combines articulate and tasty playing with a soulful and commanding voice. When joined by Megan, their vocals soar with intricate harmonies and always catchy melodies.

Megan is a force majeure on her custom-designed lap steel. She often steals the show with her incredible style on the instrument.

With constant touring over the years, Larkin Poe has established a solid fanbase that make sure every live performance is sold out in advance. In short, Larkin Poe knows how to work a room and leaves the audience happy and satisfied with well-paced and energetic shows.

Larkin Poe regularly release new music and have been nominated for a Grammy award for Best Contemporary Blues Album for Venom & Faith in 2019.

If you get the chance to see Larkin Poe live, you will be in for a treat. Larkin Poe is the real deal.
