GUEST,Nancy King at work Review: Elizabeth LaPrelle, Lizard in the Spring (16) RE: Review: Elizabeth LaPrelle, Lizard in the Spring 16 Jul 07


Greg, Elizabeth really is unique. She has learned much of her material and appreciation of Appalachian mountain music from such folks as Sheila Kay Adams, and rather than try to update the songs, she has stayed very true to the old style. Her remarkable strong voice is perfect for the mountain music she sings.

What makes this even more amazing is that Elizabeth is not yet 20 years old! (Well, maybe she is by now, but not by much!) Many of us first heard her just a few years ago at the FSGW Getaway, when she was still in high school. She is now a student (3rd year?) at William and Mary College in Virginia.

Hearing Elizabeth always makes me feel better about the future of traditional music!

Nancy
