The Hillsborough Arts Council is hosting a very special PARLOR CONCERT featuring Violet Bell. Violet Bell is Lizzy Ross and Omar Ruiz-Lopez.
Based out of Durham, NC, these two artists make folk-soul music that sings in your bones. Lizzy Ross made a name for herself in NC and beyond with her stirring original songs and “a voice like cigarettes and the smoothest whiskey you’ve ever tasted” (Stephen Markley, Chicago RedEye). She has won Floyd Fest’s On the Rise contest and been awarded the Carolina Music Award for best rock female as well as an Emerging Artist Grant from the Durham Arts Council.
Multi-instrumentalist and composer Omar Ruiz-Lopez (Jonathan Byrd, Crystal Bright, the Durham Symphony Orchestra) elevates the music with violin, guitar, cello, mandolin, and stellar vocal harmonies. Whether they’re playing an intimate acoustic tune or sprawling out in psychedelic revelry, you can feel the magic.
