The Vivants

“Fillmore Swing”
from the album Western Addition


The Vivants (Emily Bonn on lead vocals, guitar, banjo and ukulele, Jody Richardson on fiddle, foot percussion and vocals, James Touzel on upright bass and clarinet, and Isaac Bonnell on piano accordion.) play their own brand of American roots music, shining up dusty melodies with modern arrangements. Tap dance solos and four-part harmonies give way to soulful pedal steel, and accordion slides linger under wailing clarinet, trombone, and trumpet lines.
