The Sweet Lillies & Red Dirt Ruckus
Saturday, September 15 @ 9:30 pm - 1:00 am
Two forces of nature in the realm of the strings converge for a dynamic night of energetic overdrive. Kicking off the night will be The Sweet Lillies – a trio of ultra-talented women from Boulder, CO.
Their high-energy, progressive folk Americana sound has captivated fans far and wide. The harmonic convergence of Julie Gussaroff on the upright bass, Becca Bisque on the viola, and Melly Frances on percussion and lead vocals gives this band a rare and alluring sound. As testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have already shared the stage with the likes of Peter Rowan, Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident, and Andy Hall of The Infamous String Dusters. The Sweet Lillies foster a contagious love of music and a get-up-and-dance attitude that spreads lots of love and smiles. They will celebrating the release of their groundbreaking new album.
Red Dirt Ruckus are just up the road from Placerville and it’s about time they take the Crazy Horse stage by storm. Their freewheeling approach to bluegrass and Americana rock is a celebration of the joyous spirit of both of those genres.
They know when to lay down the edge and when to soar towards the horizon. Their majestic songwriting is on full display along with covers of songs we never imagined could be interpreted with such a fresh perspective.
