Lizzy Plotkin & Natalie Spears Live in the Courtyard
Nestled in the high country of the Central Rockies, Lizzy Plotkin and Natalie Spears craft a fresh tapestry of sound rooted in American tradition and inspired by the soul-stirring landscapes they call home. Their live shows weave together Appalachian fiddle/banjo duets, funky blues bass lines, and soulful harmony singing. Lizzy’s exuberant fiddling is the perfect compliment to Natalie’s colorful and syncopated banjo and bass playing. As avid students of the American roots genre, dedicated songwriters, and experienced collaborators, this duo is an exciting force rising from Colorado’s vibrant acoustic music scene.
Lizzy and Natalie released their debut award-winning 6-song EP “Just over the Ridge” in January 2021 – “hearty, warm music with a firmly rooted pulse reflecting the artistic wisdom of both players” (Laurel Premo). The EP premiered at #7 on the Bluegrass Charts in January and reached #1 album, #1 artist and #1 and #2 songs on Folk Alliance International radio chart for the month of February, 2021. “Just over the Ridge” is a showcase of Lizzy and Natalie’s breadth of capability and creativity in the roots genre. With revered guitarist Courtney Hartman joining them on two tracks, “the arrangements are stellar; inviting in every way” (Auntmama, KBCS). Having appeared on stages across the country including The John Hartford Memorial Festival, Jammin at Hippie Jack’s, BlackPot Festival, Swallow Hill, Steve’s Guitars, Ozark Folk Center and The Jalopy Theatre, Lizzy and Natalie are delighted to begin bringing these fresh songs and more to audiences in their region as the world of live music opens again.
