Out of Boston, Lula Wiles is a powerhouse, harmony-driven trio featuring Ellie Buckland, Isa Burke, and Mali Obomsawin on a rotating front-woman cycle of fiddle, guitar, and upright bass. With love songs that are at once defiant and heartsick, their strong songwriting brings contributions to the new folk ballad canon and timely explorations of what it means to live in America today.

Lula Wiles

7:00PM

Lula Wiles is a band deeply rooted in traditional folk music, but equally deep is their devotion to modern songcraft. They deliver love songs that are at once defiant and heartsick, as well as new contributions to the folk ballad canon and timely explorations of what it means to live in America today. Drawing from the deep wells of traditional old-time and bluegrass, classic country, and contemporary indie-folk-rock, Lula Wiles melds diverse influences to create a harmony-driven sound all their own. The three band members deftly swap instruments and frontwoman duties, with Ellie Buckland (vocals/acoustic guitar/fiddle), Isa Burke (vocals/acoustic and electric guitars/fiddle), and Mali Obomsawin (vocals/acoustic guitar/bass) each contributing singularly expressive vocals, instrumental lines, and songwriting. Onstage, the band gathers tightly around a single microphone for a spirited and emotionally resonant live show, anchored by their powerful three-part harmonies. Currently based in Boston, Lula Wiles released their debut album in May 2016 and have since recorded their sophomore album.
