Violet Bell (USA)

Violet Bell, from North Carolina, is a duo comprising singer and songwriter Lizzy Ross and multi-instrumentalist and singer Omar Ruiz-Lopez. They have built their reputation by mixing folk, bluegrass, soul and americana, an acoustic  sound with a dash of avantgarde on top of traditional roots music. Violet Bell have a new album Shapefinder (autumn 2022), about which one critic wrote, “This is music with a local heartbeat and global appeal.” Violet Bell tour both as a quintet and a duo, at Tønder Festival as the latter. They’ll be doing their own concert plus one with Emily Scott Robinson and Alisa Amador, performing Emily Scott Robinson’s songs from the EP Built on Bones about the witches in William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth. Their only Danish festival concert in 2023.
