Shovels & Rope are one of the best young acts in Americana today. The duo from South Carolina have all the energy and sprightliness of a band twice their size. Their new album O Be Joyful won rave reviews from almost everyone (including us), and they’ve since gone from jamming in their backyard to getting a seal of approval from Jack White and a spot at the Newport Folk Festival. Their latest tour has been a well-earned victory lap for the band, who are playing for larger audiences than ever before. Pretty soon, they could be as big as Mumford and Sons, so now is the perfect time to catch them live.
