Folk pop duo Lily and Madeleine took the stage of the Firebird on Wednesday night to an intimate crowd, marking the start of their tour with Shannon Hayden.

Cellist Shannon Hayden took the stage first. Performing with her cello, a set of delay pedals and looped sound, Hayden's unique opening act held the audience mesmerized throughout the set.

When I asked Shannon how she would describe her music, she said, "I hesitate to say 'classical' because of the connotations it brings, but that's what it is -- just putting it in a modern setting." She nonetheless made an impact on the crowd, and was a welcome addition to Lily and Madeleine's set; enhancing their vocals while remaining subtle in her support.

Sisters Lily and Madeleine are remarkably talented. Throughout their harmonies and lyrics, I kept reminding myself that they are both under twenty years old and have only been performing together for a little over a year. They are an act that I hope continues to grow and that they stick with their style and sound, as it truly is something special to hear.
