Scotland-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo merges the traditions of her native Romania with elements of contemporary jazz, avant garde folk and world music. This range of influence is effortlessly spanned by her powerfully versatile voice.
In 2013, Lizabett self-released The Traveller’s Song, an EP which found favour with online publications from across Europe, the US and Canada. Her stock across Europe is high, having played shows in Amsterdam, Zurich, Barcelona, Paris and Bucharest while her presence in UK led to supporting acclaimed musicians such as Rachel Sermanni, Rozi Plain, Tim Edey and Trembling Bells. She has played at some prestigious festivals such as the Cambridge Folk Festival and Latitude Festival.
In 2015, Lizabett toured Japan and Seoul promoting her debut album Running with the Wolves and she was back in Asia in 2016 with another tour promoting her new album The Burning Mountain.
On 12 March she will be accompanied a supergroup of some of Scotland’s finest musicians: Graeme Stephen (guitar), Tim Lane (percussion), Pete Harvey (cello) and Tim Vincent-Smith (violin).
