The string and vocal trio Low Lily (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music. Indian Hill Music voice faculty 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.
The members of Low Lily are seasoned musicians and have individually toured and performed with the likes of Ruth Moody, Cathie Ryan, John Whelan, Aoife Clancy, Adrienne Young, Childsplay and Solas, among others. The band’s latest release, The Same Way Down, captures the band’s innate connection with American roots music. The album features traditional songs and fiddle tunes alongside stunning original pieces, presented with the band’s unique style and inspired arranging sensibilities. This album debuted at #7 on the international folk DJ charts, with False Sir John reaching the #1 played song on folk radio worldwide, and the band #1 played artist in the Massachusetts RMR.
