Elizabeth Cotten

Elizabeth Cotten is of my all-time favorite guitarists. Left handed, playing with the strings 'upside down'. This is one of her classic original songs.   It's been covered by a bunch of folks including Chet Atkins.


A historical marker has been placed in Carrboro, NC honoring Elizabeth Cotten, read about it here:
