The Black Lillies at The Harvester Performance Center
450 Franklin Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
The Black Lillies, an americana rock band from Knoxville, TN., have crafted a beautiful ode to restless spirits and rambling hearts with roots in the mud-rutted switchbacks of Appalachia.
The BlWith a reimagined lineup, new songs and the same dedication to touring, the Lillies continue to sink their roots deep into the Americana landscape. ack Lillies’ story is one of hard work and highway miles … a story that traces their evolution from a group of friends making music in songwriter and frontman Cruz Contreras’ living room into what is now one of Americana’s biggest success stories: an internationally-renowned band of roots-rockers, armed with songs that blur the boundaries between folk, soul, red dirt country, blues and jazz. More importantly, The Black Lillies’ story is still unfolding, with the band’s sharp, southern-influenced songs — including Americana radio hits like “Hard to Please,” the kickoff single and title track from the band’s most recent album — leading the charge. The Black Lillies enter this chapter as one of the most visible, viable groups in contemporary roots music.
