JAMAICA -- The Jamaica Town Hall summer concert season continues on Saturday at 7 p.m., when the heavenly harmony trio The Boxcar Lilies and Vermont string band The Dusty Pilgrims perform
Supporting the release of their new CD, "Sugar Shack," The Boxcar Lilies will perform their signature mix of folk, country and bluegrass-tinged Americana music featuring three-part harmony and fine songwriting. Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, electric bass and washboard, the Western Massachusetts-based band has brought its uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues up and down the Eastern seaboard including the Iron Horse Music Hall, Club Passim and Philadelphia’s Tin Angel.
Their singing voices, like their writing voices are distinct and exceptional, but combine to make a sound that is sometimes gritty, sometimes delicate, but always warm and welcoming. Their sophomore release, "Sugar Shack," debuted on the Folk DJ Charts at No. 2 in May, and it was highlighted by both CMJ.com and eMusic.com in their roundup of exciting new releases.
The Boston Globe recently described the trio as playing "an engaging mix of folky bluegrass and acoustic country with prominent, twining harmonies," and Zak Jason of The Cape Cod Times said they "bring an energy, improvisation and charming presence to the stage each night."
