The Onlies, Vivian Leva The Onlies (Leo Shannon, Riley Calcagno, and Sami Braman) are prominent young interpreters of Old-time appalachian music. They have also developed an individual sound, with original songs that “demonstrate an enviable ability to move beyond the immediacy of their lives to touch at deeper truths, and...covers of traditional songs and tunes (that) harken to the original but are unleashed with the kind of wild, free abandon that only youth provides” (Kithfolk). Vivian Leva Music is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Lexington, VA. She grew up singing and playing traditional Appalachian and country music and attending fiddle festivals with her family. When she was nine, she began performing with her father, James Leva, and at 15, she was featured on her father’s album, " All Over the Map," which included one of Vivian’s original songs.At the Fremont Theater, 2393 NE Fremont.
