Caltech - Beckman Auditorium
The Vermont-based trio Low Lily will perform roots-steeped music with a distinctive pop sparkle on March 2, in Pasadena.
Low Lily’s concerts and recordings since 2015 have stoked a reputation for tight arrangements, fine songwriting, string-instrument mastery, and enthralling three-part harmonies. The trio blends the drive of bluegrass traditions with the thoughtfulness of contemporary folk. Co-founders Liz Simmons and Flynn Cohen are joined by prize-winning fiddler Natalie Portman.
Their newest album includes songs written by each of them. A reviewer said the songs “sound as if they are ancient traditionals, but they are all new compositions. It is the modern arrangements that have made Angels in the Wreckage a very beautiful contemporary folk record.”
The concert will begin at 8:00 pm in Caltech’s Beckman Institute Auditorium, in the Beckman Institute building just west of the larger, round Beckman Auditorium. Free parking is available in lots on both sides of Michigan Avenue just south of Del Mar Boulevard, and in two parking structures along Wilson Avenue just south of Del Mar Boulevard.
> The event is presented by the Pasadena Folk Music Society. Tickets are available from the Caltech Ticket Office (626-395-4652) for $25, with $10 tickets available for Caltech students and anyone age 16 or younger. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit this website.
