Lydia Violet Harutoonian is an accomplished Iranian-American multi-instrumentalist weaving together Southern blues, American roots, and Iranian folk music traditions. In her live band she combines fiddle, banjo, and luscious 3-part harmonies to offer a soul-folk revival experience creating a new wave of protest music. Her weaving of global rhythms, clawhammer banjo, and gospel-inspired vocal parts take her audiences deep into the cave of roots music wonders.
