Nora Brown plays old-time traditional music with a particular interest in eastern Kentucky and Tennessee banjo playing. Along with the banjo she also sings traditional unaccompanied ballads from southeast Appalachia and beyond. Now 15, she has already been playing Brooklyn stages and the festival circuit for years and continues to travel and learn from old masters. She has taken regular trips to eastern Kentucky studying under the late master banjo player and former coal miner Lee Sexton and master banjo player and historian George Gibson.
Her second album, Sidetrack My Engine, was just released by Jalopy Records
She will be joined by Stephanie Coleman on fiddle.
