Solo Ballad Singing

“Elizabeth attends to these time-honored ballads with a level of comfort and conviction rarely found these days, let alone by someone of such a young age. There is a real kind of chilling effect of her singing. Elizabeth…is more than simply an ‘interpreter’ of this genre. One gets the feeling…that she is accessing those aspect of these songs that transcend place and historical time, and speak directly to the heart.”
