Nora Brown & Stephanie Coleman

traditional music with a focus on Southern Appalachian banjo and guitar styles

Still in her teens, Nora Brown started learning music at the age of 6 and plays and sings traditional music with a focus on Southern Appalachian banjo and guitar styles.

She has played numerous venues and festivals in the US and Europe including the Newport Folk Festival, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Trans-Pecos Festival of Love in Marfa Texas, and Folk Holidays in the Czech Republic. She has performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk, TED Salon and WNYC’s Dolly Parton’s America Podcast.

Since 2019 she has released 3 albums on Brooklyn’s own Jalopy Records, all of which have charted on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts during the first week of release.

The New Yorker called her most recent record Long Time To Be Gone “a disarming collection of traditional laments and exquisite banjo instrumentals” while Fretboard Journal described her 2nd album Sidetrack My Engine as “some of the most interesting and haunting traditional music we’ve heard…impossibly talented”.

“A reverent nod to deeply-rooted ole-time traditions, and an exhibit of sonic heirlooms carefully amended to meet a modern moment with vintage elegance” American Songwriter

“A wonderful night across the two full sets, it flew by so quickly it seemed all too brief – but who would not ask for more when the music is this good?” Americana UK
