LILFEST PRESENTS: The Malvinas – a folk trio with a seriously original sound

April 5, 2019 @ 7:30 pm

$5 – $50

With roots all over North America The Malvina’s are a feminine and feminist FOLK trio with a seriously original sound. They are Gina Forsyth, Lisa Markley, and Beth Cahill. Each a solo artist, they play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo. They rock with killer harmonies and a veritable smorgasbord of contemporary and traditional compositions that have you coming back for more.

About their recent album “God Bless the Grass”

There is a distinct strength in women’s music and they tap into it brilliantly. Women with wide ranging influences…The Malvinas are serious and playful, often in the same song…The title cut “God Bless the Grass” was written by the trio’s namesake, Malvina Reynolds, in 1964. It is as poignant today as it was then with these lyrics: “God bless the truth that fights toward the sun.”  One of the most fully realized folk albums of the first half of the year.
– Mark Gallo
