Daniel Lilly and the Lilly Mountaineers
Award-winning Lilly Mountaineers, are comprised of some of the finest artists you will find anywhere in the country. Having toured with national acts around the country and appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, Daniel Lilly (and the Mountaineers) carry on the tradition started by his father with whom he played and toured with for many years, the legendary Everett Lilly.
The legend, Everett Lilly, was one of the forefathers of bluegrass music. A former Grand Ole Opry star performing with Flatt & Scruggs, he made his mark on music history performing with his brother “B” as The Lilly Brothers. Honored by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) as an inductee in 2002 in their Hall of Honor, he and The Lilly Mountaineers were recipients of their 2008 Recorded Event of the Year award. Mr. Lilly performed regularly until his death on May 8, 2012.
Singer, songwriter, bass guitarist, and official band cut-up, Daniel Lilly keeps the audiences entertained with his vast repertoire of songs, and laughing with his outrageous on-stage antics. Daniel was a member of industry-favorites, the Nashville Pickers. He was invited to join the legendary Jim and Jesse on the Grand Ole Opry, and toured the country with national recording artist Stella Parton.
note: band size can vary on size of 5-10 members depending on venue/show
