The Fretless WITH Low Lily ... double bill
Two amazing bands separately - and knowing what we know about the traditions of the series - together!  

The Fretless played with us a few years ago and have a unique take on the music. Specializing in string music they bring it fascinating places transforming fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements.

Low Lily are a trio formerly known as Annalivia.  They explore the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration weaving together a unique brand of acoustic music. Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin) and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass, to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds.  When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted yet contemporary.

A brilliant double bill.  Check them out below.

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to celtic@wgbh.org and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
