The RCAH Center for Poetry at MSU's Fall Reading Series Presents Elizabeth LaPrelle  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

Elizabeth LaPrelle of Cedar Springs, VA, is a singer and banjo player. She began winning prizes for her singing at a young age, and has dedicated research, passion, and a powerful voice to the ancient art of Appalachian ballad singing. She learned from field recordings, books, family, friends, and tradition‐bearers like Sheila Kay Adams and Ginny Hawker. At the College of William and Mary, she graduated with a self‐designed major in Southern Appalachian Traditional Performance. Elizabeth has three albums: Rain & Snow, released in 2004; Lizard in the Spring, released in 2007; and Birds' Advice, released in 2011. All are ballads and old‐time songs from the Appalachians, backed up by Sandy LaPrelle; Jon Newlin and Amy Davis of The Hushpuppies; and Jim Lloyd of Rural Retreat, VA.
