Low Lily with John Whelan
The New England-based 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. They have all traveled the world extensively, performing with an impressive variety of well known musicians. When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted yet contemporary.
Low Lily will be joined by John Whelan, accordion player extraordinaire, originally from Dunstable, England and of Irish stock. He moved to the U.S. in 1980 and now lives in Connecticut.
