Thomas (banjo). Liz, a Brooklyn-based musician, visual artist, and daughter of acclaimed blueswoman Ann Rabson, grew up in Virginia in the heart of Piedmont blues country. Active in the Brooklyn uke and folk music scene, she is a featured musician in the cabaret show "Granny's Blue-mers, ? along with Brooklyn-born Jennifer, who is also an exhibiting sculptor, teaching artist, and professional pipe-organ restorer. Arminda was born and raised in Memphis and found inspiration in her hometown's deep musical history, while early exposure to Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, and Hee Haw led to adult explorations in jazz and banjo. She hosts the weekly internet radio program "Music from the Well, ? featuring classic and contemporary American roots and blues music.
