Under the Willow’s summer will feature a return to Tampa, the band’s winter home, and their first trek into New England. The slate of shows starts this week as the string quintet performs with Kitchen Dwellers at Subterranean in Chicago on Wednesday and supports Jason Isbell and Cornmeal at Two Brothers Roundhouse in Aurora, IL on Saturday.

Under the Willow is a band where socially conscious lyrics are blended with jubilant compositions to evoke a brand of songwriting that borrows from bluegrass and folk music but is wholly unique. Erin Donovan’s vocals and ravenous fiddle playing is supported by a superb cast of multi-instrumentalists. Hayley Skreens, Patrick Donovan and Joe Lenza trade their instruments among each other, each equally proficient on guitar, mandolin or banjo, while Trevor Clark’s bass-playing and occasional beat boxing provide a firm foundation. The five-piece string band has been turning heads while sharing the stage with bands like Donna The Buffalo, The Shook Twins, Henhouse Prowlers, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades and Old Shoe. Catch them on tour this summer, and keep a look out for additional show announcements!
