Tripping Lily features Monica Rizzio (fiddle/ukulele/piano/vocals), Alex Becrelis (mandolin/guitar/washboard-/vocals), Demetrius Becrelis (guitar/ukulele/mandolin/vocals) and Laird Boles (stringed bass). Last year, the group won two Independent Music Awards – for Best Folk Record and Best Acoustic Song. They’ve made guest appearances in pops concerts with Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra and have appeared on the Showtime series “The Big C.”Tickets: $12.
