Emily Bonn & The Vivants
Largely inspired by the energy of old-time dance tunes, honky-tonk country, and western swing, The Vivants play their own brand of American roots music, shining up dusty melodies with modern arrangements.
In former incarnations, Emily performed in San Francisco subway stations, Belgian prisons, Appalachian corner stores, and at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. As a former member of the critically acclaimed country band, The Whoreshoes, she shared stages with the legendary rockabilly singer, Wanda Jackson, Old Crow Medicine Show and Devil Makes Three.
The Vivants include stellar performers, Jody Richardson on fiddle, foot percussion and vocal harmonies, James Touzel on upright bass, and Isaac Bonnell on piano accordion.
