The Onlies are coming to Walla Walla! March 31, 7:00 pm Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 7:30pm. Tix are $18.
The Onlies – Leo Shannon, Riley Calcagno, Sami Braman, and Vivian Leva – are prominent young interpreters of Old-time Appalachian music. They have also developed an individual sound, with original songs that “demonstrate an enviable ability to move beyond the immediacy of their lives to touch at deeper truths, and...covers of traditional songs and tunes [that] harken to the original but are unleashed with the kind of wild, free abandon that only youth provides” (Kithfolk).
Their albums have charted on radio stations around the country, and they have had the opportunity to perform and collaborate with Elvis Costello, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Laurie Lewis, Altan, Tristan Clarridge, and John Herrmann. In recent years, the Onlies have found a musical center in Old Time Appalachian stringband music, and their fiddle, banjo, and guitar playing have become a fixture in a generation of young people who are studying and engaging with the old time tradition. Last summer, they won first place in the highly acclaimed Clifftop Appalachian Traditional Stringband Contest. Vivian Leva was also recently featured in a Rolling Stone article "10 Country Artists you Need to Know: March 2018." The Onlies are a powerful force in the present and future of folk and traditional music.
