Alma Russ

Alma Russ is a singer/songwriter out of the mountains of Western North Carolina, playing what she considers to be “patchwork music”: country, folk, and Appalachian styles pieced together. Born in Florida, she’d spend summers with her family visiting the mountains. She took to Appalachian music at an early age, particularly to old Scotch-Irish murder ballads. She started playing fiddle in her early teens, and eventually took up guitar and banjo. She loves expressing herself through songwriting, as it’s cheaper than therapy and a way of telling stories, and she enjoys playing the old music that’s been her foundation and making something that’s her own. Folks at her shows have often said she's a cross between Dolly Parton and Stevie Nicks, only she probably plays banjo more than they do. Alma was a contestant on Season 1 of ABC's American Idol and a winner of the Violets By Becky Songwriting Competition. She has been tickled pink and as surprised as anyone at the places music has taken her; all across the Blue Ridge Mountains, from bowling alleys to strangers' BBQs, to Texas and back, even to Hollywood, once, and alas, on May 27th, it'll take her to Germano's in Baltimore!
