Elizabeth LaPrelle has been performing Appalachian ballads and old-time songs, and winning prizes for her singing at fiddlers’ conventions, since she was eleven. Her magnificent voice, her respect for the songs, and her authentic mountain sound and style brought her to the attention of first Ginnie Hawker and then Sheila Kay Adams. She has been featured as a ballad singer at the West Virginia State Folk Festival in Glenville and the Friends of Old-Time Music and Dance Fall Fling in Fayetteville, West Virginia.

Raised in Rural Retreat, Virginia, Elizabeth learned from singing with her family, who taught her various singing styles and encouraged her to sing their own favorite American folk music. Fiddler’s conventions gave her a chance to perform for mountain audiences who encouraged her interest in the traditional music of her region.

    Heard her on NPR yesterday morning talking about "Black is a Color." What an amazing voice (and fiddle too!)
