The Onlies play original and traditional fiddle-driven music, with Celtic, old-time American, and Canadian roots. Members Leo Shannon, Riley Calcagno, and Samantha Braman are Seattle high freshmen who’ve literally played together since
birth. Singing and playing fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, and piano, they have developed a strong fan base throughout the Pacific Northwest, performing concerts, square and contra dances, and pub gigs from Port Townsend, Wash., to Portland.
They sing original songs, play several different kinds of traditional fiddle music, write their own tunes, put new spins on tunes that need spinning, and keep it trad when the tune is fine on its own.
The Onlies are a fantastic young band, oozing with promise, talented way beyond their years.
