John Lilly: The Hank Williams Tribute Performance, Charleston, West Virginia, January 9, 2010

by Amos Perrine


Adults, children stretch their vocal chords with state grant

By Caitlin Sellers Email
The Daily Collegian, University Park, PA, Staff Writer

John Lilly advised a room of adults and children Saturday to sit up straight, take a deep breath and let out a little yodel.

"1-2-3-4 yodel-ay-hee-hoo," he sang as the audience joined in. "That little break in your voice is what makes a yodel," he said.

Lilly's 4 to 5 p.m. free yodeling workshop, held at the Center for Well Being in Lemont, mixed instruction with history, personal anecdotes and performance. Lilly also performed at the center at 7:30 p.m.



John Lilly's brand of folk fused with country and Americana is a sure crowd pleaser. He's the only guy I can possibly imagine could write a song about his pocketknife ("This Old Knife") and actually make a very compelling tune out of it. Lilly is highly respected amongst folk, country and old-time musicians all across West Virginia, and when you see his incredibly confident, comfortable and easy style of live performance, it's not difficult to see why.
