Female Folk Trio to Close Spring 2014 Acoustic Brew Season

by on May 17, 2014 3:45 PM

Based in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, The Boxcar Lilies are Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall, and Katie Clarke — three singer-songwriters that met and discovered a shared passion for three-part harmony.

The Boxcar Lilies have quickly made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, and bluegrass-tinged Americana music featuring spine-tingling, innovative harmonies and top-notch songwriting.

Accompanying themselves on guitar, clawhammer banjo, concert ukulele, bass and washboard, they have brought their uniquely warm sound and energetic stage presence to venues up and down the Eastern seaboard, including Club Passim in Boston and Philadelphia's Tin Angel.

“Now and then, when exhaustion sets in, I think, man I wish we found each other 10 years ago,” Goodspeed says. “But the flip side is that we never take anything for granted. We just enjoy every moment we get to make music together.”

The Boxcar Lilies will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 17 at the Center for Well-Being, 123 Mount Nittany Rd., Lemont. For more information on the group, visit
