Atlanta, Georgia’s Larkin Poe are a kicking Americana roots-rock band fronted by Rebecca and Megan Lovell, who with their sister Jessica performed as The Lovell Sisters before going on to work with Elvis Costello, Conor Oberst and T-Bone Burnett. Rebecca and Megan formed Larkin Poe – named after their ancestor, a cousin of Edgar Allan Poe – in 2010 and last year were voted ‘Best Discovery of Glastonbury’ by The Observer. They are going to be stars.

The great value double-bill is opened by Guardian-readers’ favourites Police Dog Hogan a fabulously entertaining Americana/folk/bluegrass band whose banjo player/co-vocalist is Weekend columnist Tim Dowling.
