Elizabeth Laprelle


And then we have Elizabeth Laprelle, a southwest Virgina young traditional singer and banjo player. Along with the gospel Sojourners, the retrohip Milk Carton Boys, and the Dunwells, she was one of the buzz, up and coming stars of Folk Alliance 2012. At a tender age she has mastered the Madison  County ballad style and become a strong string band lead vocalist. Niece of Jon Newlin, she is blessed with a timeless voice that projects authenticity. She possess a magic gift that earned her this year’s Mike Seeger scholarship to Folk Alliance. Her latest album, Bird’s Advice, features Jon and Amy Davis. Elizabeth Laprelle is real. ‘Nuff said.
