Grayshott Folk Club presents: LOW LILY (on tour from Vermont, U.S.A) + The Charcoal BurnersFriday 30th June 2017 at 7:30 pm
Friday 30th June 2017 @ 7.30pm
Low Lily www.lowlily.com
This delightful trio from Vermont, U.S.A. is led by Liz Simmons, who came over from the States and played for us a few years ago, alongside Hannah Sanders. This time, Liz is touring the UK with her new band and they are paying us a visit before heading off across the UK and to the Maverick Festival. Musically, LOW LILY explore the roots and branches of American folk music, creating a unique brand of acoustic music that is rooted yet contemporary.
Low Lily– Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle)– are masterful players, composers and arrangers with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from Bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England and Old Time Appalachian. As Low Lily, these relatively young but well-seasoned musicians bring their considerable strengths, experience and history together to create an undeniably rich and versatile musical palette. Listen out for wonderful harmonies and great playing.
Low Lily were recently voted #1 Most Wanted at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (NY), they have had two #1 songs on international folk radio, and have been nominated for two New England Music Awards.
We are delighted they have agreed to include Grayshott Folk Club on their tour.
+ Haslemere's very own The Charcoal Burners.
Led by David O'Brien, The Charcoal Burners create a great Americana/Folk sound together. They have written some wonderful original songs and do some excellent covers too. They'll be unveiling their brand new EP and playing songs and tunes from it, so Grayshott Folk Club will be the very first place where you can hear it live!
