It is great to have Eliza returning for another year of the festival. A politically minded, poetically gifted singer-songwriter, she has become one of the most respected musicians in folk and Americana music circles. Eliza has been inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame alongside legends Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith; received a Grammy nomination for her 2006 CD Paradise Hotel; and is an ongoing winner of the Austin Chronicle’s various music awards, as well as the Folk Alliance Best Artist, Best Songwriter and Record of the Year. 
Eliza’s music has always reflected her vivid vision of the world around her, full of joys and sorrows, each song a window into a life of struggle and triumph in a world she feels is “poised on the edge of moral, economic and environmental bankruptcy.”
