Carrie Ann Heart and Michael Trent's savory Southern stew of folk, rock and blues makes the buzz they've received for their debut album as Shovels & Rope, O' Be Joyful, highly warranted. In concert, their loving chemistry is apparent, as each takes a seamless turn on a single snare, guitar and vocals. Their show in Dallas this past spring took place before a small, passionate fan base at Tradewinds Social Club. It's safe to assume more will show for this stop. Dallas' Somebody's Darling open up the show.
