Low Lily @ Chandler Center for the Arts | Randolph | Vermont | United States

With meticulous vocals and superb instrumental acumen, Low Lily’ plays acoustic music that is deeply rooted in tradition yet sounds refreshingly contemporary The band’s signature blend is rooted in Celtic traditions and the folk music of the rural South. Flynn Cohen’s deft flatpicking on guitar and mandolin weaves seamlessly with Lissa Schneckenburger’s formidable fiddle-playing, all grounded by Liz Simmons’ percussive rhythm guitar. Rock-solid double bassist Corey DiMario often joins the core trio in concert. Their mellifluous voices all blend just as beautifully. Together and individually, the group has performed with some of the leading lights of contemporary roots, folk, and Celtic music, including Ruth Moody, Livingston Taylor, Solas, Crooked Still, and the Karan Casey Band.
