Female folk trio to close spring 2014 Acoustic Brew season

LEMONT – The Boxcar Lilies will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Center for Well-Being, 123 Mount Nittany Road, as part of the Acoustic Brew Concert Series.

Based in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, The Boxcar Lilies are Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall and Katie Clarke – three singer-songwriters that met and discovered a shared passion for three-part harmony.

The Boxcar Lilies have quickly made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country and bluegrass-tinged Americana music featuring spine-tingling, innovative harmonies and top-notch songwriting.

Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, concert ukulele, bass and washboard, they have brought their uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues up and down the east coast, including Club Passim in Boston, Massachusetts, and Philadelphia’s Tin Angel.

“Now and then, when exhaustion sets in, I think, man I wish we found each other 10 years ago,” Goodspeed said. “But the flip side is that we never take anything for granted. We just enjoy every moment we get to make music together.”

Tickets are on sale at at acousticbrew.org, at Webster’s Bookstore Cafe or Nature’s Pantry in State College, or at the door. Penn State University students will receive a discount (or refund if purchased online) at the door with a student ID.
