You only have to hear them once to become fans of Tripping Lily. This young quartet might be described as a string band with pop music sensibilities, or perhaps a cutting edge vocal quartet with acoustic instruments. Last year was a big year for Tripping Lily, highlighted by winning 2 Independent Music Awards for Best Folk Record and Best Acoustic Song, opening for Jazz artist Chris Botti, and being a featured guest for the Cape Cod Symphony’s Holiday Pops Spectacular. 2012 will see the release of a highly anticipated album, another partnership with The Cape Cod Symphony Summer Pops concerts, and several tours throughout the East Coast. Featured on Showtime’s New Hit Series “The Big C”, hitting number one for several weeks on Boston’s Folk Station WUMB it is no wonder why the Boston Globe called the band”….a genre unto itself.”
Monica Rizzio (fiddle/ukulele/piano/vocals), hailing from Texas and Nashville has brought her Americana upbringing to native New Englanders Alex Becrelis (mandolin/guitar/washboard/vocals) and Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/ukulele/mandolin/vocals) and has formed a band that appeals to all genres, North and South. Stringed Bassist journeyman, Laird Boles anchors this enigmatic quartet. Tripping Lily blends a unique sound of Folk/Americana and Pop with deeply personal songwriting and vocal harmonies that are winning fans over by the thousands.
