About

Eliza Meyer is an "old soul," singing and playing traditional string band, old time and early bluegrass music reminiscent of Hazel and Alice, The Carter Family, and Tommy Jarrell. Influenced by traditional ballads of Madison County and the round peak music of Surry County, she plays fiddle, banjo, guitar, and Autoharp. Meyer currently studies with Dewey Brown and has taken classes with Alice Gerrard, Eddie Bond, Erynn Marshall, and Sheila Kay Adams. She plays at house concerts and has played on the Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) Stage during IBMA's Wide Open Bluegrass, as well as at Merlefest, the North Carolina Museum of History, and the Earl Scruggs Center. Meyer is a native of Raleigh and attends Broughton High School, where she is in the sophomore class.
