Music by Lizzie No

Brooklyn based musician Lizzie grew up singing in her church choir and played the concert harp. Later, she discovered Bob Dylan and started teaching herself his songs on the harp. But she says she wasn’t exposed to much folk music in her youth — and she didn’t really know if there was a place for her within the genre.

“There is a long tradition of black people playing folk music, but I wasn’t really aware of it,” No says. “It’s not all that visible in popular culture, so it took me a while to find my way and see where I fit.”
