Violet’s soaring voice is a rare wonder of heartbreaking magnificence, and its owner has appeared on bills with the likes of Radiohead, Willy Mason, Beth Orton, and Elvis Perkins. Versatile on guitar, banjo, viola, mandolin, and keyboards, she infuses New England’s deep Anglo-folk traditions with a street-level indie sensibility. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Whatever. Violet’s a devastating performer and you’d do well to catch her whenever you can.
Nina Violet will play at Market Market in Rosendale, New York, on August 1 at 10pm. For cover amount and more information, call (845) 658-3164 or visit http://www.marketmarketcafe.com/MM.WEBSITE/Market_Market.html.
