Saturday Live Music Series Presents: ilyAIMY

4:00 pm

July 3, 2021

4-7 pm

ilyAIMY (ill YAY’ Mee) leaves it to the fans to decide what they sound like to them. They say it sounds like some combination of Rusted Root, Buckingham/Nicks, Jethro Tull, acoustic Tool, Ani Difranco, Keller Williams, “Nickel Creek on crack”, Alice in Chains, the Indigo Girls, Metallica, and Cry Cry Cry – it’s no wonder ilyAIMY has shared events comfortably with folk acts (We’re About 9, Ellis Paul, Dar Williams and Pat Wictor), anti-folk acts (Hammell on Trial, Ember Swift) and pop-rock acts (the Blue Oyster Cult, Jeffrey Gaines, The Lloyd Dobler Effect, Gym Class Heroes) as well as death metal bands, reggae groups and hip-hop acts.

Collectively their energetic brand of new-folk has garnered honors from the Bernard/Ebb Songwriter Awards, Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, Kerrville Folk Festival, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Washington Area Music Awards, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, National Association for Campus Activities, the Northeast & Southeast Regional Folk Alliances and more. They are three-time winners of the Washington Area Music Association Winners for Best Contemporary Folk Group and are known for combining their award-winning songwriting, tight male/female harmonies, signature intricate slap-style guitar work, ukulele, percussion and an eclectically humorous stage show into an exquisite package.

Join us this Saturday on the lawn to experience their awesome music.
