Springville Center for the Arts will kick off it’s fall concert season with Low Lily on Friday, October 5 at 7:30 p.m. Low Lily explores the roots and branches of American folk music, creating a unique brand of acoustic music that is rooted yet contemporary. The band is comprised of Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle). They are all players, composers and arrangers with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England and Old Time Appalachian sounds.
The trio have performed with many other musicians. Simmons has performed with Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin, and Lucy Wainwright Roche. Cohen has toured worldwide with numerous acts in traditional and contemporary acoustic music, including John Whelan and Ruth Moody of the Wailin’ Jennys. Schneckenburger graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music and has performed as a solo artist and with Solas and Childsplay.
No Depression magazine said Low Lily “takes roots music into areas that have not been explored fully and it sounds exceptional and refreshing…” Springville Center for the Arts’ s gallery, workshop and concert programs are housed in an 1869 former Baptist Church located at 37 N. Buffalo St., Springville, NY 14141. Call 716-592-9038 or visit SpringvilleArts.org for tickets, $12 presale, or $15 at the door.
