      Bio

      ....

      Nora Jane Struthers is a talented songwriter, singer, and guitarist whose keen appreciation of the nuances of traditional music shines in her own work. Nora Jane grew up in New Jersey playing and singing bluegrass music with her father, Alan. Her mother fondly remembers that, "Jane could yodel before she could talk. When she was a little tyke, she would wait by the window for her dad to walk home from the train station after work, and she would greet him with a yodel." Living in New York City for seven years, Nora Jane played with her father in a bluegrass duo "Dirt Road Sweetheart" performing forgotten brother duets, originals, and traditional folk songs. ..
      As a teenager, Nora Jane attended bluegrass festivals and fiddlers' conventions all along the East coast from Georgia to upstate New York, but it was in the Blue Ridge Mountains, at the annual Old Fiddler's Convention in Galax, Virginia, that she truly developed her passion for traditional American music...

      At the Galax Fiddler's Convention in 2007, Dirt Road Sweetheart took 11th place in the bluegrass band competition out of 172 bluegrass bands and in 2008, took 12th place out of 174 bands. In fact, Dirt Road Sweetheart's performance of one of Nora Jane's original gospel songs, "Cabin in the Sky," was selected for the 72nd Annual Galax Fiddler's Convention compilation CD. ..

      Now based out of Nashville, Tennessee, Nora Jane is performing her originals with her own band, an acoustic quartet comprised of fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass, and occasionally cello. Her songs overflow with imagery and the listener is easily swept away into her stories. In 2009 Nora Jane received her first accolade as a songwriter when she was selected as one of ten finalists in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour competition. In July 2009, at the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, WV, Nora Jane and her band won 1st place in the Neo-Traditional Band Competition, and Nora Jane was given the award for Best New Song...
      The music of Nora Jane Struthers is among the purest Americana being created today. In 2010, Nora Jane Struthers and The Bootleggers won 1st place in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition (previous winners include Nickle Creek and The Dixie Chicks).

      "Old time music continues to reinvent itself in the able hands of young artists like Nora Jane Struthers." - Tim O'Brien

      ....Nora Jane infuses bright, fresh lyrics into this traditional genre with sheer intelligence. Musically, she takes unconventional twists and turns, while "holding you to the road" with commanding charm...
