November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Each half of Violet Bell has dedicated their life to the pursuit of music: Lizzy Ross as a songwriter who briefly tried her hand in Nashville before returning to more receptive soil in North Carolina; Omar Ruiz-Lopez as a music educator and sideman who plays a staggering array of instruments (violin, viola, cello, guitar, mandolin, banjo). Ross thinks melodically and lyrically, while Ruiz-Lopez thinks in tones, textures and colors. Combined, their work is vibrant, full of ebbing and flowing emotion; full of passion, fear, hope, angst, frustration, humor all the messy emotions comprising the worthwhile chaos of the human experience. Stylistically, the songs take familiar Americana textures and bend them in surprising directions. Violet Bell is what happens when two musicians at the top of their craft bring their distinctive skills and perspectives to a shared space and life.
