Alice Gerrard is one of the most important old-time and bluegrass musicians performing today. She is a prolific songwriter and a keeper of traditional tunes in her adopted home in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Alice learned her craft directly from friends and mentors that include Elizabeth Cotten, Hazel Dickens, Tommy Jarrell, Fred Cockerham, Luther Davis and Doc Boggs. She was one half of Hazel and Alice, a groundbreaking duo she formed with Hazel Dickens. They were inducted into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame in 2017.

Rolling Stone calls Alice “…a beacon of creativity in folk and bluegrass.”

No Depression Magazine says, “Sun to Sun reveals Alice Gerrard at her very best, writing lyrics and music that convey the shortcomings of human culture while also reveling in the resilience of human nature.”

“Still passing on what she’s learned…” The Washington Post

“Alice Gerrard blazed trails for female folk singers in the 1960s and 1970s…” PBS Newshour
