Come Hear NC On Songs We Love: Elizabeth Cotten

Apr 5, 2019

We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, folk musician and Grammy nominee Alice Gerrard talks about one of her heroes, Elizabeth Cotten. Alice is the subject of 'You Gave Me A Song,' a documentary that premieres at The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham this weekend.
