Admission: $12 (students, senior citizens and members $10).

Strong-willed, self-reliant, independent and self-assured, Lulu shows up in the lyrics of many southern traditional songs. Her strength is drawn from the strength of her culture. Lulu’s Fate wishes to honor her and to escort her into the 21st century – for her fate, in part, lies in the present.

Lulu’s Fate is Tom Espinola (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Kristen Jones (cello, vocals) and Kara Beth Falck (vocals). The trio focuses on traditional American music – primarily southern Appalachian and string band music, plus some country blues. Original instrumental tunes and songs are also brought into the mix. Their sound is stripped-down and soulful, driven by the interplay between Espinola’s virtuosic picking and Jones’ sweet cello, and illuminated by three-part vocal harmonies.

The trio’s debut 8-track EP, The Blackest Crow, was released in September 2014.

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.
