Candyman(inactive) elizabeth cotten stories (11) RE: Folklore: elizabeth cotton stories 13 Aug 03

It was a very moving day for me. Just think, she said the was her FIRST TRIP out of Georgia ever. I was so lucky to attended both concerts.

It may have been her first trip to Hawaii, but it wasn't her first trip out of Georgia. Elizabeth Cotten (not Cotton) was from North Carolina and spent much of her adult life (including her years with the Seegers) living in the Washington, DC area.

Elizabeth, or Libba, travelled widely throughout the 1960s and '70s for concert, coffeehouse and festival appearances. I met her on numerous occasions at the Newport and Mariposa Folk Festivals.
