Low Lily In Concert

Date: Saturday, April 22, 2023
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

With the release of their new record "Angels in the Wreckage," the Vermont-based American Roots band Low Lily tours as a five-piece with drums and bass for the first time ever! The show features Hazel Royer on double bass and Stefan Amidon (of the Sweetback Sisters) on drums. This exclusive full-band performance brings the energy of fiddle music, the introspective quality of contemporary folk, the precision of Bluegrass, the drive of Americana and combines all these elements into one stunning soundscape. Low Lily has crafted a signature sound that they have shared with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and the UK, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two Independent Music Award wins. In 2018, the band released a full-length album with 2X award-winning title track "10,000 Days Like These"ť and their original song "Hope Lingers Onť," which has been sung by choirs around the world as an anthem for peace and justice. Low Lily's sound has veered more assuredly towards the roots of American music, though the original folk songs that are the hallmark of Low Lily's sound remain at the fore, as they tackle such complex topics as love, loss, hope, justice, family heritage and environmental destruction.



General admission tickets $20, students $10, EBT cardholders $5.
