Nanci Griffith (Born 1953)

Austin, Texas, singer, guitarist and songwriter (now living in Nashville), she has mined numbers of different musical genres, including folk, country, and a hybrid she calls “folkabilly.” She won the 1994 Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album with Other Voice’s-Other Rooms, but her work has sometimes enjoyed greater success through the performances of other artists. (Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss have both enjoyed big hits with her songs, for example.) She has toured widely and recorded collaboratively with many artists. She is particularly popular in Ireland and has recorded with The Chieftains, the leading proponents of traditional Irish folk music.
