“Clean, economical arrangements… a wonderful album.”
Sing Out!’s Best of 2015
“…(they) compellingly mix contemporary folk and bluegrass sensibilities with a sensitive use of their keen musicianship.” Fatea (UK)
The US-based string and vocal trio LOW LILY explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weave 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.
The members of Low Lily are seasoned musicians and have individually toured and performed with the likes of Solas, Ruth Moody, Cathie Ryan, John Whelan, Aoife Clancy, Adrienne Young, Childsplay, among others. Low Lily’s self-titled album (2015) 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.
