Female folk-bluegrass group The Good Lovelies are making a stop at Fox Island on a U.S. tour that stretches from Minneapolis to Las Vegas. The five-year-old band has garnered a good rep in their native Canada, with spots at the Mariposa, Hillside and Montreal Jazz festivals, and are taking their third CD “Let The Rain Fall” on tour to the U.S., U.K. and Australia.

Swapping instruments and singing three-part harmony, band members Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore blend roots, folk, bluegrass, Americana and swing with light-hearted lyrics. Their first album, “The Good Lovelies,” won them Best Emerging Band at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards and the 2010 Juno Award (Canada’s Grammy) for Roots/Traditional Album of the Year.

They’ll be playing Friday night at the Chapel on Echo Bay on Fox Island, a tiny, century-old church that hosts weddings, functions and a regular chamber music series.

8 p.m. Feb. 3. $30. Chapel on Echo Bay, 400 6th Ave., Fox Island. 253-549-7039, www.foxislandchapel.net, www.goodlovelies.com
