An Extra Helping of the Blue Plate Special – The Vivants “By and By”

Hailing from San Francisco, The Vivants find their musical faith in the inspiring traditions of Southern music and showmanship. They stopped by the Blue Plate Special on their See The South tour. The acoustic quartet recently completed their third album, Bluegrass Special. This song, “By and By”, is an original composition from the new CD, written by Emily Bonn, who plays guitar and sings lead. Sharp eyed viewers will note that WDVX’s own Alex Leach joined the band on banjo. Find out more about the Vivants at
