Discover the timeless musical heritage of the United States through the eyes and voices of the women who have shaped American roots music in all its diversity. Tap your feet to the sound of vibrant banjo melodies echoing the legacy of Ola Belle Reed or Lily May Ledford. Janie Rothfield is an American Fiddler and American Old Time Clawhammer banjo player widely recognized for her traditional and inventive style and her award-winning tunes.
