Shovels & Rope to play Crowbar in February

The excellent South Carolina pair is coming to town

Posted By on Tue, Jan 21, 2014 at 5:31 AM

Charleston, South Carolina husband-and-wife alt-country duo Shovels & Rope are coming to town next month for a show at Ybor City's Crowbar on Sat., Feb. 15. The pair is promoting its latest full-length, O' Be Joyful.

As Shovels & Rope, Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent ply a white-lightning sort of rough-hewn roots-punk that stands way out from the alt-country crowd. It's dirty and raucous and fun, and has been garnering tons of airplay on WMNF. The national scene took notice last year as well—at last September's Americana Honors & Awards, Shovels & Rope took home trophies for Song of the Year (for "Birmingham") and Emerging Artist of the Year.

This is gonna be a good one, folks. Don't blow it.
