Band performs this Saturday, Feb 25th at the Depot Brewery 8:30pm $5 cover.

Soul Sherpa, a 9-piece original horn band, was pieced together from the remains of members of a jazz combo from Kirkwood Community College.

After playing music with each other daily, there was such an indescribable connection that we just couldn't leave behind. Having similar inspirations and aspirations, Soul Sherpa emerged.

According to Ian Draves, the band's bassist, "We strive to bring the groove from our hearts to the audience, playing a mixture of R&B, Funk, Pop, Jazz, andSoul music."

LOW LILY
will be performing at Cafe Paradiso on Monday, February 13th at 8pm.

The string and vocal trio Low Lily explores the roots and branches of American folk music with traditional influences and modern inspiration that weaves together a unique brand of acoustic music. Liz Simmons (vocals and guitar), Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, and mandolin), and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals and fiddle) are masterful players with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England, and Old Time Appalachian sounds. When you combine this with stellar composition skills and inventive arrangements you get music that is rooted yet contemporary.

Low Lily’s new self-titled album brings their influences together in a collection of six songs which includes original and traditional material on three voices, guitars, mandolin, fiddle, double bass, and trombones. Additional musicians include Corey DiMario (double bass) and Fred Simmons (trombones). The album’s first track, “House Carpenter”, debuted at #1 on the Folk DJ charts– the band’s second #1 song.
