If you’ve never caught a show in the cozy, intimate venue at The Corner Store, 900 South Carolina Avenue SE, you’re missing out. The small venue is part of the home of artist couple Kris Swanson and Roy Mustelier. They line up all manner of wonderful acts which you get to experience in a laid-back atmosphere; there, you can feel the passion and the electricity of the artist inches away from you. This Saturday could be a great introduction to this space: Low Lily, a vocal and string trio, will be bringing their unique blend of American-roots (and branches!) sound and three-part harmonies to the Corner Store Saturday, February 28th, at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm).
Low Lily used to be the group Annalivia, until late last year. Now with a new lineup –new member Lissa Schneckenburger (fiddle, vocals), Liz Simmons (lead vocals, guitar), and Flynn Cohen (acoustic guitar, mandolin, vocals), they are ready to tour the east coast. Together, they bring years of experience and a blend of traditional and innovative musical styles. Although this is their first time playing in DC, they have ties to the Institute of Musical Traditions in Takoma Park, where all members have performed before. We look forward to welcoming them and their sound to DC!
