Riley Calcagno & Vivian Leva

Genre: Banjo, Duet Harmonies, Fiddle, Old Time Appalachian, Traditional Appalachian

Vivian Leva and Riley Calcagno are young interpreters of old mountain music who play and sing with both free abandon and carefully studied intent. They grew up deeply connected with old time music … learning, playing, and falling asleep to the echoes of square dances from an early age.

Leva (of Lexington, VA) began performing at age nine with her father, prominent traditional folk musician James Leva, and at 15 was featured on his album “All Over the Map” including a song she wrote. In 2014, she traveled to France with the collaborative troupe The Lost Tribe of Country Music. In 2016, Leva performed and taught with her mother, Carol Elizabeth Jones, at Voice Works in Port Townsend, WA, and has most recently been performing with several classic Honky Tonk bands in Greensboro and Asheville, North Carolina.

Calcagno (of Seattle, WA) is a founding member of The Onlies, a folk band described as “deliciously well-crafted” (Kithfolk) and on the forefront of a new generation of traditional acoustic string music. Riley has performed with Elvis Costello, Darol Anger, Bruce Molsky, Altan, Laurie Lewis, Tristan Clarridge, Tashina Clarridge, and John Herrmann. He has also performed and recorded with The Onlies, John Herrmann, Scrape and as a session musician. He is currently a member of Three Story Chicken House.
