Lila Blue, Phillip Roebuck, and Saskia Lane
PHILLIP ROEBUCK is a singer/songwriter from Virginia, who plays resonator guitar and percussion at the same time. The songs cover a wide spectrum of roots & folk music — blues, gospel, old time & bluegrass, sea shanties, and of course some tearjerkers. Dancing shoes encouraged!
LILA BLUE is a singer-songwriter and country-folk musician from New York City. Since the beginning of her artistic path at a very early age, Lila Blue has proven herself to be an accomplished recording artist, composer for theater, film and television, and a multi-instrumentalist.
Brooklyn-based SASKIA LANE is a Juilliard-trained bassist, composer, performer, puppet maker and educator whose work spans many genres. A classically-trained musician with a strong grounding in jazz, Saskia tours with her own much-lauded jazz pop trio The Lascivious Biddies, the raucous klezmer group The Isle of Klezbos, and up-and-coming young artist Lila Blue. She has shared the stage with a wide variety of artists, from Jay-Z and Beyonce to Marc Ribot and the Kronos Quartet. Last fall Saskia had the pleasure of recording with Harry Belafonte, alongside singers John Legend and Sting.
Blue and Roebuck met in 2011 at the Lake Lucille Chekhov Project, and have been playing together ever since, accompanying each other and composing songs that some have called “poetry wed to music”. For their show at TSL, the group will be playing songs from their own repertoires, as well as a bevy of tunes they’ve made in collaboration. It’s a night of music you will not want to miss!
