House Carpenter - Low Lily
Another excellent band currently on a UK tour are our LCM featured artists today, Low Lily. This Vermont based Americana Roots band are headlining at the Green Note on Wednesday 5th July and are well worth seeing live. Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a lovely live version of the first track 'House Carpenter' from their self titled album which debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts– the band’s second #1 song.
The string and vocal trio Low Lily (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music. Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds. When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted yet contemporary.
Low Lily’s new self-titled album brings their influences together in a collection of six songs which includes original and traditional material on three voices, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, double bass, and trombones. Additional musicians include Corey DiMario (double bass) and Fred Simmons (trombones).
