LULA WILES CONCERT!
March 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$10 - $15
317 Main Community Music Center is proud to present Lula Wiles in concert at First Parish Congregational Church in Yarmouth on Saturday, March 24th at 7:30 PM.
This all-female folk trio based in Boston is made up of Ellie Buckland (vocals, fiddle/guitar), Isa Burke (vocals, fiddle, guitar) and Mali Obomsawin (vocals, bass). What makes these young women formidable is that all three can sing lead vocals, play multiple instruments and write songs.
Born in Maine to musical families, they began playing music together as kids at Maine Fiddle Camp. “ I remember we immediately bonded over two things” recalls Isa. “Our love of the Harry Potter books, and our love of a fiddle tune called Hull’s Reel.” Eventually each made their way to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music. Isa and Ellie began performing as a duo in 2013, and Lula Wiles was born when Mali joined the band a year later.
When Lula Wiles performs, the band’s many years of friendship are clear from their electrifying musical chemistry and alchemic vocal harmonies. At first, the trio relied heavily on the traditional fiddle tunes and ballads they had learned at fiddle camp. Today, Lula Wiles has more of an Americans/Country vibe. Their Maine roots come out in their songwriting with songs that reflect on the natural world, rural poverty and the struggles of people they grew up with in Franklin county.
317 Main student group Flight 317 will open the show.
Tickets ($15 for adults/$10 under 12) can be purchased online at www.317main.org , at 317 Main or at the door. First Parish Church is located at 116 Main Street in Yarmouth.
