What’s Spinning

Lizzy Plotkin March 29th in the Radio Room

Fiddler and singer-songwriter Lizzy Plotkin seamlessly sews a rich heritage of music – from Appalachian fiddles and banjos, to the groove of old jazz, blues and swing - into a folk fabric all her own. Lizzy’s debut solo album, We Will Sing, is dedicated to this landscape and the people supporting her musician’s journey. These original songs, finding their root in the heart, vary from nostalgic country waltzes and bouncy old-time fiddle tunes to soulful blues hollers. Lizzy founded and toured with the harmony-driven female folk trio Free the Honey, reaching #1 on the Folk DJ Charts with their album Fine Bloom, and has additionally played with the likes of the Drew Emmit Band, Martha Scanlan, Trout Steak Revival and Gypsy Jazz Social Club. Lizzy is joined by a distinguished quartet of Colorado Roots musicians for a vibrant live show! Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the Door.
