About Fruitlands Fall Concert Series: Lilli Lewis

We are thrilled to announce that Fall concerts are returning this year in the Fruitlands open-air event tent. This year’s series of intimate performances celebrates diverse women’s voices in art and music today, featuring an incredible all-female lineup of talented musicians.

On October 27th we welcome Lilli Lewis to the stage!

Athens, Georgia native turned New Orleans Folk Rock Diva Lilli Lewis is a voice for the voiceless in Americana, her third full album for Louisiana Red Hot Records, lauded by NPR, Rolling Stone, Offbeat Magazine and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Trained as an opera singer and classical pianist, singer-songwriter Lewis has been a composer, producer and performing artist for over two decades. She has been known as the Folk Rock Diva since performing in the Folk Rock band The Shiz, founded with her wife Liz Hogan.

Lewis issued three previous releases on Louisiana Red Hot Records where she serves as VP and the Head of A&R: The 2018 The Henderson Sessions, 2019’s We Belong, and the 2020 My American Heart Red + Blue EP. In 2020, Lewis also released a single she co-wrote, co-produced and performed — the “Mask Up” anthem for a public health campaign from Louisiana Red Hot Records and WHIV-FM featuring New Orleans favorites Kirk Joseph, Glen David Andrews, Roland Guerin, James Andrews, and Erica Falls.

As the story goes, Lewis’ mother was told her baby probably wouldn’t survive because of lung trouble in utero. Lewis now uses those same lungs to bring what she calls sacred songs into profane spaces, and though she’s abandoned trying to define her sound, she hopes her audiences leave her performances knowing two things: that they are brilliant as they are, and that they have the ability to use their own brilliance to make a better world.

Concert begins at 6:30PM, Doors Open 6PM
