Mother Banjo

Mother Banjo

Featuring Ellen Stanley on banjo and vocals, Mother Banjo is a New England-raised, Minneapolis-based songwriter. Called “an outstanding poet” (Inside Bluegrass), she was a Midwest Finalist for the prestigious Mountain Stage NewSong Contest and has been featured nationally on SiriusXM Radio and CMT.com. She released her new album The Devil Hasn't Won with a sold-out release show at the world-renowned Dakota Jazz Club, where legends like Prince, Lucinda Williams, and her banjo hero Bela Fleck have performed. Produced by Steve Kaul (The Brass Kings), the album is a "tasty excursion into rootsy gospel" (City Pages) and showcases her all-star 5-piece band.
