About This Event:

15-year-old Nora Brown "has a host of roots music legends pouring out of her fingertips and through her lips," says The Bluegrass Situation. Dedicated to the traditional banjo music of eastern Kentucky and Tennessee, and to the soulful ballads of the south, Nora possesses a music wisdom and intense relationship with the music that is far beyond her years.

Nora is well respected on the summer festival circuit, earning top honors at numerous competitions including the Clifftop Appalachian String Band Music Festival and Grayson County Old-time and Bluegrass Fiddlers Convention. She's taught both beginning and advanced banjo classes at the Ashokan Center’s "Southern Week" and has had multiple month long residencies at the famed Barbès in Brooklyn, NY.

Her first album, Cinnamon Tree, produced by the legendary Alice Gerrard, landed at #7 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts the second week of its release in fall 2019. It's sadly now out of print, but she promises that more good stuff is coming soon. Nora plays solo regularly and also with fiddler Stephanie Coleman and fiddler Jackson Lynch.
