Tripping Lily at the STC Theatre

Here's another reason we love the Salem Theatre Company - when their stage is dark, they use it for concerts and comedy - which they aptly call their "Music and More Series." 

Tripping Lily is worth checking out on Saturday, April 9th.  You can listen to a few of their songs at TrippingLily.com.  Here's the info provided by STC: 

Called “a genre unto itself” by the Boston Globe, the group takes the stage for one night only at Salem Theatre Company’s STC Theater, 90 Lafayette Street on Saturday, April 9, at 7:30PM.  Tickets are just $15 and are available now at www.salemtheatre.com/tickets, or you may reserve tickets for pick-up at the door by calling 978-790-8546 or e-mailing info@salemtheatre.com.  Only cash and checks are accepted at the box office.

Tripping Lily’s music has been featured on Showtime’s “The Big C” and went to #1 on WUMB in Boston.  The quartet also appeared at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2010.

Described as a string band with pop music sensibilities, or perhaps a cutting edge vocal quartet with acoustic instruments, the group features Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/vocals/ukulele), Alex Becrelis (mandolin/vocals), Monica Rizzio (fiddle/vocals/ukulele), and Laird Boles (stringed bass). 

Touted as fresh, energetic, and alive, Tripping Lily’s pop-rock groundwork is cross-fertilized with folk music and cutting edge vocal harmonies. The band’s unique ability to absorb traditional music while speaking to the here and now is proof of their versatility as contemporary musicians.
