Lily Sexton plays a really big guitar. A guitar built in 1949 and owned by her grandfather, when Gibson Jumbos were a man’s instrument. Upon inheriting the J-45, Lily’s fascination with the mystery and richness of the guitar became devotion, and she has been attempting to unlock it’s secrets ever since. A fiddler by nature, Sexton’s original tunes possess the ancient tones of acoustic instruments- the swing of Appalachian Old Time, the subtle throb of bluegrass rhythm, the sweetness of a high, lonesome melody- while her lyrics retain sincerity and vivid relevance. Lily is a fiddler in the progressive bluegrass group, Mamma’s Marmalade, and has shared stages with Erin McKeown, Mike Compton, and Joe Newberry. Her solo record is forthcoming!
