Lulu's Fate is a Washington DC-based trio performing songs from the Appalachian, southern string-band, country blues and other Americana traditions, as well as new original songs and instrumental tunes. Blending virtuosic playing with three-part harmony, their unique interpretations of traditional songs will delight audiences from house concerts to festivals.
Lulu's Fate began in 2001 as a larger ensemble with core members Tom Espinola and Steve Smith. This group brought their unique blend of southern string band songs, original songs/instrumentals and Trinidadian calypsos to venues such as Institute of Musical Traditions, the Chamizal Festival in El Paso, TX, the Black Box Theater in Las Cruces, NM and the Takoma Park Folk Festival. Currently performing as a trio with Tom Espinola, Kristen Jones and Kara Falck, Lulu's Fate keeps its focus on traditional music with guitar, mandolin, cello and three-part harmonies. The group is releasing its debut EP "The Blackest Crow" on September 7, 2014.
