    New Orleans folk rock Diva Lilli Lewis plays the Opera House at Boothbay Harbor Saturday, Oct. 22 in a 7:30 p.m. concert.

    Lewis’ fall tour is in support of her current record release “Americana.” Supporting Lilli Lewis on piano and vocals are Wade Hymel on drums, who played on the album, and Robin Sherman on bass.

    “Americana” was released late last year and returned her to her folk, soul and country roots. As a classically trained singer and pianist critics praised her third full length release on Louisiana Red Hot Records as … “each song feels more exciting than the last.” Glide Magazine. “…she sings marvelously, with a pleading soprano that can dip to a throaty, chest tone.” Music Row. “…she lays claim to a broad range of American musical styles and stories.” Country Queer. “Bold American storyteller.” Top 10 Albums of the Week-NPR All Songs Considered. 

    Previous album releases include “The Henderson Sessions” and “We Belong.” EP releases are “My American Heart Red + Blue,” and “Orange Music Volume I-Water and Light” and “Orange Music Vol II-Anatomy.” Additional releases include “Coming of John.”

    Notable virtual and television appearances include the Kennedy Center’s Arts Across America and New Orleans’ WWOZ’s radio Piano Night, Folk Alliance International’s Global Music Match and CBS affiliate WWLT’s “Good Morning Louisiana. Current festival appearances include AmericanaFest in Nashville and the Porcupine Mountain Festival in Michigan. Current awards include the Folk Alliance International’s 2022 Spirit of Folk Award.
