Levitt AMP Music Series - ilyAIMY

Thursday, August 1 • 7PM • Canal Place Festival Grounds - 13 Canal Street

For over two decades, Rob Hinkal and Heather Aubrey Lloyd have crisscrossed the nation as ilyAIMY (i love you And I Miss You) playing everything from bait shops to biker weeks to clothing-optional resorts, folk festivals, heavy metal festivals and jams of def comedy. Award-winning narrative songs with soulful, powerful male / female harmonies and a percussive, clawhammer-like acoustic guitar provide the heart of the band, while their infectious energy and rapid-fire lyricism is softened with cello, driven by Irish bones and bodhran, beatboxing, djembe, and thickened by didgeridoo, synths and keys creating “an acoustically roiling, combustible attack on the usual singer/songwriter fare”.

Their energetic brand of new-folk has garnered honors from the Bernard/Ebb Songwriter Awards, Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, Kerrville Folk Festival, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Washington Area Music Awards, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. They are three-time winners of the Washington Area Music Association Winners for Best Contemporary Folk Group and are known for combining their award-winning songwriting, tight male/female harmonies, signature intricate slap-style guitar work, ukulele, percussion and an eclectically humorous stage show into an exquisite package.
