ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Elizabeth LaPrelle is a young singer from Smyth County, Virginia. She sings the old songs in the original mountain style. This music has lasted over generations, across oceans and mountains, through changes in taste and technology. It cannot disappear as long as great singers like Elizabeth make this music come alive.

"Anyone can learn the old ballads. There are numerous collections in libraries and books that are available on-line. But, Elizabeth is interested in the feel, the sound, the ornamentation of these songs. She is, in my opinion, one of maybe a handful of young singers able to capture the rhythm, the intensity, the breaks and sighs, that make this style of singing authentic. The only problem I have while listening to Elizabeth is that I'm always listening through tears. She reminds me so much of my older relatives - the same profound feeling for the ballad, yet with such a clear voice."

-Sheila Kay Adams

the passion shows
this is by far some of the most passionate singing I've ever heard. She sings the old ballads in the old style - meaning she puts everything she has into it.

pure emotion.

buy it, then buy Lizard in the Spring to go along with it.

Amazing
I was speechless when I first heard Elizabeth sing on the Sugar In The Gourd online radio program. I thought it was an old archival recording made in the twenties. I am ecstatic that a young person has preserved this vocal style. I thought of all the old time music forms, solo balad singing would die out - it's just too naked and personal. That Elizabeth can sing out these lovely ballads as well as any of the old masters is a truly wonderful thing for music lovers everywhere.

Upton A. Savoie


She has the authentic sound, if I am any judge. The spectrum of songs is broad enough to show her ability to handle different types of old-time music well. Her talent is shown to its best advantage on the lonesome ballad.

Elizabeth Barlow


Beautiful, authentically performed mountain ballads. Elizabeth's voice is clear, true, and full of feeling. This is my new favorite CD!
