Everett Lilly - Everybody and Their Brother

Andy May’s Swift River Music Wins IBMA for Everett Lilly Project

Everett Lilly CD, IBMA Recorded Event of the Year, is a Very Special Tribute.

Charles Lilly wanted to honor his father, bluegrass music pioneer, Everett Lilly. As the mandolinist and tenor singer with Flatt & Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys for two years during their heyday in the early 1950’s, and as a member of the group The Lilly Brothers and Don Stover, Everett helped transform bluegrass music from a regional musical style to one that is loved across the country and around the world.
