About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

Cheese and Grain, Frome

Roots Sessions hosts a weekly performance, every Wednesday at The Grain Bar Cafe in Frome, showcasing the best in folk, roots, R&B and more, with the aim of bringing the best of local and national acts to the venue.

Violette are a sister duo using close vocal harmonies, piano and guitar to spin tales about the things that often go unsaid – the story in the footnote, the world in the postscript. They are self-taught musicians who have been writing their own material together from a very young age, taking inspiration from books and the past, as well as their love for nature and landscape.

While rooted in the Folk tradition, their songs are genre-defying short stories, character studies and vignettes. They have been on tour supporting the jazz icon Georgie Fame at prestigious venues (Bristol’s St George’s Hall and The Apex at Bury St Edmunds), as well as starting this year performing at various UK Folk festivals. They are currently working on their first studio project.
