Low Lily at the Homegrown Coffeehouse
The string and vocal trio Low Lily explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves 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.
Lissa is a graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts (2001), and has played all over the world, including appearances in Russia, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Canada, and the United States.
Flynn has also performed with Halali, The Sevens, Aoife Clancy, Cathie Ryan, Lawrence Nugent, Skip Healy, Joe Derrane and Frank Farrell, Adrienne Young, Jake & Taylor Armerding, Gail Davies, Jilly Martin, Malibu Storm, Bruce MacGregor, Women of Ireland, The Vancouver Symphony, Revels, Christmas Celtic Sojourn, and Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble, among others.
Liz grew up listening to her mother sing traditional songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America, as well as the New Orleans brass music her father plays. Since then, she has developed a unique vocal and guitar style that draws from her musical history in folk and ballad traditions as well as the sounds of contemporary folk music, and she has also become a respected songwriter.
