The Soul Cafe Series sponsored by the Historic North Church of Portsmouth kicks off their 2019 season with Lula Wiles!

**Door Open at 6:15pm**

Lula Wiles
is a band deeply rooted in traditional folk music, but equally deep is
their devotion to modern songcraft. Their songs span from
heartbreak-drenched acoustic ballads to honky-tonk swagger to
contemporary grit and back again, all anchored by powerful three-part
vocal harmonies. Their lyrics are fiercely honest, littered with
reinvented folk tropes and evocative images - a rainy field of daisies, a
dusty bar lit by Christmas lights, an unmade bed.

They deliver love songs that are at once defiant and heartsick, as well as new
contributions to the folk ballad canon and timely explorations of what
it means to live in America today. Drawing from the deep wells of
traditional old-time music, classic country, and contemporary
indie-folk-rock songwriting and arranging, Lula Wiles melds diverse
influences to create a sound all their own. The three band members
deftly swap instruments and frontwoman duties, with Ellie Buckland
(vocals/guitar/fiddle), Isa Burke (vocals/guitar/fiddle), and Mali
Obomsawin (vocals/bass) each contributing their own singularly
expressive vocals, instrumental lines, and songwriting. Onstage, the
band gathers tightly around a single microphone for a spirited and
emotionally resonant live show.

Their sophomore album, What Will We Do, will be released January 25 on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings.
