Combining spine-tingling three-part harmony and exceptional songwriting, The Boxcar Lilies
have made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, blues, and bluegrass-tinged Americana music. Though each member of the Massachusetts-based trio has a distinct singing talent, Jenny Goodspeed (electric bass, guitar), Stephanie Marshall (washboard, guitar), and Jim Henry (guitar) deftly weave their voices into a delicious whole – a sound that is sometimes delicate, sometimes gritty, but always innovative and soul-stirring. Their trademark harmonies may have put the band on the Americana music map, but their genuine and charming stage presence and off-the-cuff banter helped keep them there. They’ve brought their engaging live show to venues across the Northeast and beyond, including The Iron Horse Music Hall, Caffé Lena, Club Passim, and Philadelphia’s Tin Angel. The trio’s sparkling and lush brand of Americana has led to numerous opportunities including being selected for an official showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis and performing at the 2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival as the #1 Most Wanted Emerging Artist. A recent addition to the group, award-winning song-writer and multi-instrumentalist Jim Henry has toured the world with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Paula Cole, Tracy Grammer and many other A-list artists. He is the go-to session player in New England, having played on hundreds of records. A rich baritone voice delivers his heartfelt songs about home and family coupled with his fiery guitar playing make a musical force of unrivaled stature. As Susan Werner said, “Jim Henry sings like the guy you want to marry and plays guitar like the guy you wanna date.” Don’t miss this amazing group. $25, $20 for members. Complimentary refreshments.
