When Ameripolitan Award winning artist (2017 Rockabilly Female) Lara Hope teams up with internationally touring, upright bass-slapping pro Matt “The Knife” Goldpaugh, they become…THE GOLD HOPE DUO!

This husband and wife team have been hitting it hard, spreading “Merry-Cana”, a term they coined to describe their genre. They will be bringing their unique brand of stripped-down, upbeat Rockabilly, Rhythm & Blues, Country, Folk and a pinch a humor to a town near you! Living by the motto “If you can’t do it, kazoo it!”, this pair is sure to make you laugh, drink, dance and grab your partners behind!

*You can also find the GHD playing worldwide with their full band, Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones, who have been on tour for much of the past year, as direct support for The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Reverend Horton Heat, and The Blasters.
