The Sweet Lillies
Boulder’s The Sweet Lillies, the acoustic string-band known for their ethereal, vocal harmonies and irreplicable collaborations, are thrilled to announce their return to the road after being sidelined for a year due to Covid.
This current tour will see the Lillies hit some of the most iconic Pacific Northwest and Colorado markets with stops in Portland, Eugene, Seattle, Jackson, Boulder and more - including a stretch of dates with Brothers Comatose.
Whether traveling to gigs on horseback or by tour bus, Americana mavens The Brothers Comatose forge their own path with raucous West Coast renderings of traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll music. The five-piece string band is anything but a traditional acoustic outfit with their fierce musicianship and rowdy, rock concert-like shows.
The inaugural WWG in 2013 began in the parking lot of Crazy Mountain Brewery in Edwards, Colorado and has since grown to a multi-state, multi-genre extravaganza. WinterWonderGrass has cemented it’s place in music festival folklore. With locations in Colorado, California, and Vermont and attracting music fans from all over the country this festival not only provides the infrastructure for world class music ranging from bluegrass, roots, folk and much more, it also provides world class skiing and riding at each location.
This holiday season, frolic and play the wildflower way! Boulder’s own Americana trio, The Sweet Lillies, have today released “Silent Night,” the first single off their forthcoming holiday album Sweet Holiday Sessions. “Silent Night” is available everywhere music is streamed and downloaded.

The Mishawaka Amphitheater is a mystical place that lies somewhere between a state highway and a river in northern Colorado. It is one of those venues that most have heard of, even seen pictures of, but surprisingly, many in the region still remark that they have not set foot on its storied grounds. For others, this is a dynamic they would like to keep in place for fear that the secret will get out and future events and tickets would be more difficult to secure than they often already are.
The Sweet Lillies' music is, first and foremost, heartfelt and collaborative. Those defining traits are given life by the trio of musicians who make up the Lillies, Julie Gussaroff, Becca Bisque, and Dustin Rohleder, who have combined their individual strengths together to deliver powerful narratives of life in song.
The Sweet Lillies were excited to take the stage in front of a sold-out crowd last night. The guests were just as enthusiastic as they welcomed and embraced the String Americana band from Boulder. This band has no restraints went it comes to progressive styles of music, they incorporate many genres with acoustic instruments, well-crafted arrangements, and band equality on stage. What gives them a universal appeal is diversity in backgrounds and influences.
