Lacemakers / Bio

Lacemaking: The art of making delicate fabric from separate strands of threads coming together to form something unique and beautiful.

The three ladies of The Lacemakers do just that with their blend of Appalachian, Celtic and Bluegrass sounds and sensibilities. Heloise Love, Kim Blackwell and Miss Darla weave together the traditions of the moonshiners of Virginia, the heart and soul of Ireland and Scotland and the high lonesome sound of the blue hills of Kentucky.

Heloise Love with her clear and warm voice takes you from the misty clouds of the Scottish Highlands to the summit of Slieve Gallion in Derry. Sometimes leading, sometimes following, Heloise adds her fine guitar picking and the occasional whistle and bodhran to The Lacemaker's sound.

When Kim Blackwell sings you find yourself in some small town a few miles from nowhere in those blue hills of Kentucky. Then she plays her fiddle and banjo and you know you're at a place you've always wanted to go but couldn't find before. It's magical and it's real.

Miss Darla hails from the mountains of Virginia and has moonshine in her blood. She’ll give you a bit of bluegrass with her guitar, a bit of Appalachian on her mountain dulcimer and, when she sings, a bit of her soul.

Once you hear the trio of Heloise Love, Kim Blackwell and Miss Darla, - The Lacemakers - you'll be right there with them, along for the ride, through past and present, fact and fiction.

And, you wouldn't have it any other way.
