On Wednesday 25 August 2010, Lilly of the West played a special concert at the Zaimov Park, Sofia, Bulgaria, with international guests. It was part of the summer cultural events of the Sofia city municipality. The band featured Lilly on guitar, fiddle, and vocals, Bodi on bass, and Jasen on guitar.

Guests included Pepa Malina (excellent fiddler from the Czech Republic) and Mike Black (singer/ songwriter from the UK). The show was opened by Mike with his original songs. Lilly of the West followed with a ninety-minute set, featuring country, blues, swing, and jazz standards. Tasteful solos were exchanged by Pepa and Jasen. A highlight were the twin fiddle instrumentals, performed by Pepa and Lilly. Concert was well attended; around 200 people watched the show. Lilly and Pepa also appeared on Bulgarian national Television the same day.
