It’s nothing short of remarkable how far the band has come in those six years, both in terms of miles and in terms of personal and musical growth. Through the ups and the downs, they’ve established themselves as one of the hardest-working and most dynamic bands touring today. With a re-imagined six-piece live lineup that includes new additions Sam Quinn (the everybodyfields), Mike Seal (Jeff Sipe Trio, Larkin Poe) and Jonathan Keeney (Robinella), it won’t be hard to please Black Lillies fans.


The Meadows Brothers get along pretty well, considering they’ve around each other for 19 straight years. Sure, they still have the occasional argument about whether to listen to Tom Petty, Townes Van Zandt, or Doc Watson in the car, or what songs to put on the set list for the night’s gig, but overall, they keep it pretty cool.

THE MUSIC OF Vermont-based folk duo Cricket Blue is inspired by diverse aspects of the American folk tradition: old and current, popular and obscure. Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith write songs marked by close-knit harmonies and words about myth, confusion, love, and the ends of the things.
