The Brattleboro, VT-based band LOW LILY (formerly Annalivia) explores the roots and branches of American folk music, creating a unique brand of acoustic music that is rooted yet contemporary. Low Lily is Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle). They are masterful players, composers and arrangers with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from Bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England and Old Time Appalachian sounds.
Liz has developed a unique vocal and guitar style that draws from her musical history in the folk and ballad traditions of Ireland, England and America as well as contemporary folk music. She has performed with EVA, Long Time Courting, the John Whelan Band, and others. Flynn has toured worldwide with numerous notable acts in traditional and contemporary acoustic music, including John Whelan and Americana singer/songwriter Adrienne Young. Lissa grew up in Maine as an active member of the folk community, graduated from The New England Conservatory of Music and has performed as a solo artist and with Solas and Childsplay, among others. Together as Low Lily, these young but well-seasoned musicians bring their considerable strengths, experience and history together to create an undeniably rich and versatile musical palette. Their most recent self-titled album “Low Lily” received critical acclaim with a #1 song on the international folk DJ charts, and Sing Out! Magazine included it in their Best of 2015.
