Camp House hosts a night of Appalachia and grassroots
The Black Lillies originated in Knoxville, but their roots are planted in their music—which keeps them touring on the road. This Friday at 8 p.m., The Black Lillies are performing at The Camp House.
The rich tunes and smooth vocals create a unique mix of country music inspired by East Tennessee and the Appalachian area. The band consists of Cruz Contreras (bandleader, songwriter, and vocalist), Trisha Gene Brady (harmony vocalist), Tom Pryor (multi-instrumentalist), Robert Richards (bass) and Bowman Townsend (drums).
The Black Lillies have made their voices heard across the country, performing at a variety of popular music festivals, including Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, and Stagecoach. They’ve also won two Independent Music Awards and have played at the Grand Ole Opry over 30 times.
Also performing are Time Sawyer and The Moccasin Benders. Hailing from Elkin, North Carolina, Time Sawyer will take the stage with a grassroots feel. Opening are The Moccasin Benders, a Chattanooga-originated acoustic blues-folk-grass band.
