Lizzy Plotkin’s place-based songwriting and fiddling is as exuberant as is it graceful. With reverence for the natural world and a humble, yet wise human perspective, Lizzy shares with listeners her joy and connection through original story, melody and voice.
The sounds of Appalachian fiddles and banjos enliven Lizzy’s music, while she is equally drawn to the groove of old-jazz, blues and swing. Seamlessly combining a rich heritage of musical influence, she has sewn a folk fabric of her own. John Hartford, Vassar Clements, Kate Wolf, Nina Simone, Patty Griffin, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Django Reinhardt and Bob Dylan all get seats at the table of heroes. In 2012, Lizzy co-founded Colorado folk trio Free the Honey, released three records, reached #1 on the folk dj charts with their album Fine Bloom and performed nation-wide until 2016. As a guest instrumentalist, she has performed with a number of electronic, blues, jazz, bluegrass and country outfits such as The Polish Ambassador, Martha Scanlan, Drew Emmit Band, Ragged Mountain Bluegrass, Pure Prairie League, Gypsy Jazz Social Club and Trout Steak Revival . She lives in Crested Butte, CO where she is an active community member and music instructor. Currently Lizzy is promoting the release of her debut solo record We Will Sing due out March 8, 2018 as well as performing as a duo with banjo and bassist Natalie Spears for audiences across the county.
