Sunday 2nd July - 7.30 pm
 

Hailing from Vermont, USA, LOW LILY explores 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 sounds.

Originally from California, Liz developed a unique vocal, guitar and songwriting style that draws from her childhood raised by folk musicians, and her studies in the folk and ballad traditions of Ireland, Scotland, England and America as well as contemporary folk music. She has toured with Livingston Taylor, 3X Grammy winner Tom Chapin, and Lucy Wainwright Roche, to name a few.

Flynn, an Ohio native, holds a degree in Composition from Dartington College (Devon) and an MA from Mills College (CA), and has toured worldwide with numerous notable acts in traditional and contemporary acoustic music, including John Whelan, Cathy Ryan and Ruth Moody.

Lissa grew up in Maine as an active member of the folk community, graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music and has performed internationally as a solo artist and with Solas and Childsplay, among others. Together as Low Lily, these still relatively young but well-seasoned musicians bring their considerable strengths, experience and history together to create an undeniably rich and versatile musical palette.

Low Lily was 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.
