A welcome return
I have been a big fan of Lily and Madeleine since first discovering their music on YouTube. As Lily & Madeleine are from the USA, there are not many opportunities to see these amazingly & talented sisters.
I have only seen them twice, both gigs were in 2014.
In January Lily & Madeleine released their album "Canterbury girls" on New West Records. The 2019 tour was their way of promoting the new songs.
Lily and Madeleine played their set with a full band which included a drummer, cellist & bass guitar. Lily usually plays guitar, Madeleine keyboards but these sisters can also play other instruments. The set included most of the songs from the Canterbury girls album, but they also played a few of the previous songs. Their harmonies are so beautiful. After the gig Lily and Madeleine stayed behind to meet & chat to the fans and to sign CDs, vinyl albums & photos

Lily and Madeleine
Lily and Madeleine were great, Holiday Oscar amusing and the venue chilled. Sound could perhaps have been better, little heavy on the bass at times for this type of band.

Excellent Gig by Lily and Madeleine
Lily and Madeleine are my favourite new artists of the past five years. I've now seen them five times and they get better and better. These two American sisters have a warm and engaging stage presence, and their vocal harmonies are superb. In this set, they played the whole of their outstanding new album "Canterbury Girls" plus tracks from their first three fine albums and E.P. Accompanied by the talented Shannon Hayden on cello and a female drummer, they played to a full house and got a warm reception. After the show they kindly met fans and signed autographs.
