NEWS CENTER Maine -- Their names are Ellie, Mali and Isa. So how the heck did they wind up calling their band "Lula Wiles?"
Isa Burke, who plays acoustic guitar for the group, says she used to joke about using her feminine wiles on people. But there was already a band named "The Wiles." So where did Lula come from? Isa said her dad suggested it as a play on the name of an old folk song called "Lula Walls."
The three all met as children and came together musically after spending summers at the Maine Fiddle Camp in Montville. They are now based in Boston, but come to Maine often for shows around the state. Mali and Isa both played with the Franklin County Fiddlers in their younger days.
Lula Wiles has a show at the Yarmouth Congregational Church on Saturday, March 24th before heading west for shows in California and Washington. For more information about the group, check out their website at: http://www.lulawiles.com/
