Lillian Chase, a 19-year-old fiddler and vocalist, grew up enveloped in the old-time and bluegrass scene in and around Asheville, North Carolina. She has played at well-known Southern venues including Merlefest and Song of the Mountains, and is now studying Music Performance at Berklee College of Music. She placed 4th in the 2022 Open Old-Time Fiddle Contest at Clifftop and 1st in Old-Time Fiddle at the 2022 Lowell Banjo & Fiddle Contest.

Micah and Lillian were initially connected by their shared mentor, Bruce Molsky, and met at the 2021 Ossipee Valley Music Festival. The two started performing as a duo after competing together in the Twin Fiddle category at the 2022 Lowell Banjo & Fiddle Contest, where they placed 1st. Their duo quickly became well-established in the Boston area after playing a sold-out show at Club Passim in fall of 2022.

Micah and Lillian share a love for old-time fiddle tunes and ballads, and interlace their sets with newer songs and tunes. Their shows are full of tight harmonies, twin-fiddling, and rocking guitar & fiddle duets.
