In the back of Tallgrass Taphouse, notes drifted out the door. As usual, the Firkin room was blazing with another live performance and an animated audience.
Served at a few tables were quality beer and delicious soft pretzels with cheese dip. In the center of the music was Lily B. , strumming her beloved guitar.
When it comes to performing at gigs, Lily is no stranger. As a musician, she started young, at the age of 8. It didn’t take her long to start performing in front of people once she got the hang of the guitar. She wrote her first song and had her first performance at 10 years-old.
“I love sharing my music and I thrive in a performance setting,” Lily said. “I am always down for any type of collaborative projects with other musicians and open-minded to any ideas people present me with.”
Lily said she has her grandfather to thank for getting her involved with music.
“I had no interest (in music) at all,” Lily said. “He just took me out one day and paid for my lessons. I'm eternally grateful for the gift of music my grandfather shared with me.”
Lily her inspiration and confidence comes from her being true to herself.
“What you see is what you get!” Lily said.
