12/21/23 Low Lily's Winter Solstice Celebration with special guests Katie McNally and Neil Pearlman
Thursday, December 21, 2023
$ 25.00

American Roots band Low Lily celebrates the Solstice! This high energy show will feature instrumentals alongside impeccably arranged songs to honor the season. Between them, the musicians play mandolins, guitars, fiddle, banjo, and sing in three part vocal harmonies.

With the release of their new record ‘Angels in the Wreckage’ (produced by Dirk Powell), the New England-based band Low Lily (Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, and newest member Natalie Padilla) brings their infectious sound to a new level. With the energy of fiddle music, the introspective quality of contemporary folk, the precision of bluegrass, and the drive of Americana, the members of Low Lily combine their individual talents into one stunning soundscape.

Low Lily has shared their signature sound with enthusiastic audiences throughout North America and the UK, garnering two #1 songs on international folk radio and two Independent Music Award wins. In 2018, the band released a full-length album with 2X award-winning title track “10,000 Days Like These” and their original song “Hope Lingers On”, which has been sung by choirs around the world as an anthem for peace and justice.

“Low Lily brandishes their formidable individual folk foundations within a collective sound that’s as smart with sense of pop phrasing and flair as it is roots-savvy.”  Roots Music Report

“[Low Lily has] an incredible knack for putting a little pop twist on a traditional folk/Americana sound… it’s a blend that works beautifully.”

The vibrant musical traditions of Scotland and Cape Breton take on new life in the hands of Katie McNally (“Formidable” – The Boston Globe) and Neil Pearlman (“a tremendous pianist” -BBC Radio Scotland). Based in Portland, ME, this young musical pair is making waves internationally with their fresh approaches to traditional forms.

Katie McNally has already made her mark on Scottish music in North America and her 2020 release “Now More Than Ever” has been praised as ground-breaking on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to fronting her own trio, Katie performs with Fàrsan, fiddle supergroup Childsplay, and has toured with such Celtic music luminaries as Carlos Nuñez, Karan Casey, and John Whelan. Katie has performed in the US and abroad at Celtic Connections, Celtic Colours, the Newport Folk Festival, and The Festival of American Fiddle Tunes.

Called “a force to be reckoned with” by WGBH’s Brian O’Donovan, Neil is recognized in many Celtic music circles for his unique approach to the piano. Rooted in traditional Cape Breton piano styles, Neil brings in ideas from many other genres and the result is an exciting new sound that remains true to its traditional roots. An accomplished Cape Breton step dancer as well, Neil grew up in the family band Highland Soles, led by father and mother Ed Pearlman and Laura Scott, both influential Scottish music and dance figures in the US. Neil currently performs in a duo with Shetland fiddler Kevin Henderson and in the Gaelic band, Fàrsan.
