Alice Gerrard: Traditional Musician and Music Scholar

Record #:
Alice Gerrard, now in her 70s, has spent a lifetime documenting, learning about, and performing traditional American music. Not a native of North Carolina, she took up residence here in 1989. However, even before that she had come here countless times to seek out the musicians who had inspired her for decades. Gerrard received a 2010 Brown-Hudson Folklore Award for her devoted promotion and advocacy of traditional American music.
