LilFest Presents the Phil Henry Acoustic Trio & Rick Drost
The LilFest Series at Keene Valley Congregational Church brings world quality performances to an intimate concert setting in the beautiful Adirondack mountains.  Two hours from each  - Montreal, Albany and Burlington, audiences have been attracted from locations as distant as Chicago and Syracuse by the combination of the setting, intimate sound, and fine musicianship.  Phil Henry follows in the footsteps of performers like Michael Smith, Tim Grimm, Claudia Schmidt and Radoslav Lorkovi.

Phil Henry is the real thing. He crafts old-school story songs so rich and sweeping youll wish you wrote them yourself.  A formally trained musician, he builds strange, beautiful chords and a big acoustic sound. This performance will feature the Phil Henry Acoustic Trio-- or PHAT, as they're known by their fans-- completed by hand percussionist Gary Moon and mandolin, accordion, and keyboard player Jeff Kimball. PHAT's lush and groovy instrumentation, tight vocal harmonies, and irreverent stage interaction has made the band a favorite at coffeehouses and festivals across the Northeast. He won a 2015 Times Argus Tammie Award for best Singer-Songwriter Album, he has been a finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival's New Song Competition, and was a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist. Vermont's Seven Days calls Phil's music "...vivid lyrical imagery that captures the imagination."

Rick Drost from Cambridge, MA, has been writing songs since the late '60s  with depth and heart: songs  that repay repeated listening and convey a long love of classical music, natural wonders, poetry.  His songs treat life from a varied angles - Jilted lovers, Swans in the Public Garden, Leftover Lobsters, and meditations on meditation. longtime inspiration from Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen; recent influences include Vance Gilbert and David Wilcox.

Nancy Emrich Freeman, the creator of LilFest, seeks out beautiful small settings for music in communities open to the experience of quality live music of many genres and styles.  LilFest is deeply rooted songs and stories of passion and power for our modern lives.
