Pickin' Production presents The Black Lillies, live in concert at the Paradise Theatre in Paonia, Colorado on Friday, November 2nd. Hailing from Knoxville, Tennessee, The Black Lillies played Paonia's Pickin in the Park in 2011 and have been regulars on Nashville's Grand Ol Opry and have been featured heavily on CMT these past few years. The band offers a fresh blend of americana, jazz, rock, country and blues. They're known for their highly entertaining, very danceable tunes and, of course, for their top-notch songwriting. Joining them is special guest Betse Ellis from The Wilder's on fiddle. To learn more about the band or to listen to their music, visit www.theblacklillies.com. This is a kick off concert for The Cider Festival this same weekend presented by Delicious Orchards and Big B's Fabulous Juices. The North Fork Cellar's will unveil their newest libation, the North Fork Cellar's Hard Cider, for your sampling. Don't miss this intimate evening of great entertainment! Tickets available online at www.pickinproductions.com and locally at KVNF, The Paradise Theater and Homestead Market for $15 advance and $20 at the door.
"Steel guitar punctuates the occasional sad lyric with extra heart-punching melancholy, and the beats grab the barn burners by the nose and drag them out to the dance floor for a kicky little two-step. Male-female vocals intertwine beautifully, and everything blends together like a dream featuring Hank Williams and Dolly Parton doing duets."
- Paul Constant, The Stranger (Seattle)
The Lillies are all about the song, whether it's deep country, grassy, folkie or spare. The harmony vocals of Cruz Contreras and Trisha Gene Brady merge like butter and flour in a silky roux. The rhythm section and Billy Contreras' fiddle give it motion and flavor without weighing things down."
Craig Havighurst, String Theory Media
"These Grand Ole Opry vets play the type of country and bluegrass you want to hear at the end of a long summer day."
