Alive After Five: Clumsy Lovers 

There's nothing clumsy about this band, but plenty to love


In the 23 years since Vancouver, BC-based quintet Clumsy Lovers released its first album, the "bluesgrassified Celtic rock" band has racked up more than 2,500 shows. Aaron Harmonson (bass), Jason Homey (banjo, mandolin), Chandra Johnson (fiddle, vocals), Devin Rice (drums) and Trevor Rogers (vocals, guitar) have drawn heaps of praise from critics and listeners alike, who all agree: the Lovers' sound is infectious.

On the band's most recent album, Make Yourself Known (self released, 2009), listeners are treated to nitrous-fueled hootenanny tunes, bouncy folk-pop and laid-back toe tappers perfect for sashaying along the promenade. So if you're looking for a tears-in-your-beer, sadster indie folk act, you're looking in the wrong place.
