The Black Lillies to Perform in Bishop Hill

Roots rockers The Black Lillies will perform Wednesday, October 2nd at Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St, Bishop Hill, IL.


The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6PM, with music starting at 7PM, and is open to guests of all ages. Tickets are $15 and available at Eventbrite.com.


Known for their captivating blend of rock &roll and country, The Black Lillies have become one of Americana music’s biggest success stories: an internationally-renowned band of roots-rockers, armed with songs that blur the boundaries between genres. They are a mainstay on radio and album sales charts, with a sound that is as powerful in the quieter moments as it is explosive during the jubilant ones. The band’s pared down configuration has resulted in a bigger, deeper sound built on undeniable chemistry, lush three-part harmonies, and instrumental virtuosity with a funky edge. Their new album Stranger to Me was an immediate critical and fan success, debuting at #5 on the Billboard Folk/Americana chart, #9 on the Billboard Current Country chart, and #61 on the Billboard Top 200Albums chart–no small feat for a band that eschews record labels in order to remain independent and in control of their sound. And what a sound it is: built on the foundation of the familiar roots rock of some of the greatest bands of the past, but altogether fresh, modern, sharp; swirling with psychedelic overtones, torch ballad longing, and an indie rock edge
