The Boxcar Lilies
October 4, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
The Boxcar Lilies have quickly made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, and bluegrass-tinged Americana music featuring spine-tingling, innovative harmonies and top-notch songwriting. Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, concert ukulele, bass, and washboard, they have brought their uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues up and down the Eastern seaboard.
2013 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival attendees voted the trio “Most Wanted to Return” artists following the festival’s annual Emerging Artists Showcase that featured 24 acts. The Boxcar Lilies also secured a coveted official showcase at the 2012 International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis and a formal showcase at last year’s Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Conference.
The Boxcar Lilies “bring energy, improvisation and a charming presence to the stage each night. Anyone with an ear for folk or luscious harmonies will enjoy these women.” – Zak Jason, Cape Cod Times
