The Black Lillies in Concert
Born in the rumbling cab of a stone truck and aged in the oak of Tennessee’s smoky night haunts, The Black Lillies have quickly risen to the forefront of the Americana scene.
Founded in 2008 by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Cruz Contreras (co-founder of Robinella and the CCstringband), The Black Lillies have created their own unique brand of country, roots, rock and blues via Appalachia.
Highlights have included stops at festivals including Bonnaroo Music + Arts, Pickathon, CMA Festival & Fan Fair, Americana Music Festival, Four Corners Folk Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion; appearances on National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage, four separate PBS concert specials, and in June 2011, the band’s debut on the Grand Ole Opry.
The Black Lillies continue to tour non-stop, and you’ll leave their show feeling like you’ve witnessed an old-fashioned Southern tent revival. These songs will haunt your thoughts long after the curtain closes, rattling through your head like a crooked screen door slaps against its frame when a storm is coming.
Acoustic folk rock band River City Trouble opens the show.
