The Sweet Lillies
w/ Kyle Ledson
Saturday, September 14 / 9:15 pm-1:00 am
We are excited to welcome back this band from Boulder, CO. They love Nevada City so much that they’ve even immortalized it with a namesake song. Their high-energy, progressive folk, Americana, newgrass 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 captivating and jubilant sound. The relatively recent addition of Dustin Rohleder on guitar ups the ante even further. As testament to their appeal, The Sweet Lillies have 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.
Kyle Ledson warms up the room with his dazzling flatpicking prowess matched by heartfelt singing. This local 17-year old phenom has abilities that many spend a lifetime trying to achieve. Beyond his skills on guitar and mandolin, his original songwriting solidifies his otherworldly talent. We can look forward to him joining The Sweet Lillies for some scintillating collaborations.
