"With one foot planted firmly in Appalachian music culture and the other always expanding and evolving, The Black Lillies have created a unique sound embraced by fans old and young," raves Vanity Fair - an apt description for a band that draws audiences as varied as indie rockers and traditional country music enthusiasts. Eschewing record labels, they've still managed to conquer the Billboard Top 200 charts, put three tracks in Country Music Television's top 12, and win multiple Independent Music Awards.
American Songwriter has this to say: "Despite trafficking in a richer, more authentic brand of Americana than you'll hear on mainstream radio, they've been invited to perform at the legendary Grand Ole Opry more than twenty times --a record for an independent act. The music is breakneck, brazen and beautiful; gentle Laurel Canyon folk, the honky-tonk heartache of classic country, winding jams and flat-out rock'n'roll. These songs will haunt your thoughts, rattling through your head like a crooked screen door slaps against its frame when a storm is coming."
You can't beat that for a $35 ticket cost!
