Lily of the West
The lead singer is Lilly Drumeva.
Lilly grew up in Bulgaria, but lived in many other European countries: France, Germany, Austria, Slovakia and the UK. She picked up different languages and studied many cultures. Lilly has a degree in economics and worked for several years in finance and tourism until, one day she discovered music. Her passion for bluegrass, country and folk music came 15 years ago when she first heard Emmylou Harris, "Live at the Ryman" CD. She embraced this and began to study it thoroughly, she learned to play the guitar and sing.
Lilly formed the band and named it "Lilly of the West". Bluegrass and country music became her life and passion.
Lilly explains "I love it so much and feel it is my mission to promote it everywhere I go, especially in the Balkans, a place where bluegrass and country hardly exists. I promote it through my concerts and the programs I host on Bulgarian National Radio and TV Gigs".
Here's a brief taste.
