A trio of Mabels set to bring a little bit of country to Golden

Kicking Horse Culture is starting off 2013 with the Travelling Mabels, continuing the Live Kicks series.

The Travelling Mabels, made up of mother and daughter, Eva and Suzanne Levesque, and Lana Floen, are a fold/country female trio full of spirit, spunk, and laughter with a new highly anticipated second CD ready for the touring season.

Winners of the ACMA Group of the Year award for 2011, collectively their songs bring a wealth of life experience to the stage.

Floen on lead vocals and acoustic guitar had already been singing professionally for 15 years before joining the Travelling Mabels, and Suzanne began singing and playing bass at the age of 12 when her mother Eva started a family band.

Singularly, each woman can vocally stand alone, but once you hear the combined harmony blend, you will know why these three women came together.

The beauty of the Mabels is that they represent three generations of women. This has opened the door to a dynamic energy both musically and in the rapport with the audiences that most wouldn’t experience every day.

Their musical influences range from the Eagles to Bob Dylan to Sheryl Crow, and their comedic, yet often heartfelt, take on life means they more than meet a wid range of audience expectations whenever they perform.

The trio has had several highlights over the past few years, including opening for Prairie Oyster, the Big Valley Jamboree in 2010, a Shaw Cable TV special, and the CBC Slave Lake Fundraiser.

The Travelling Mabels are playing at the Golden Civic Centre on Friday Jan. 25. Tickets are available at the Art Gallery of Golden.
