Nora Brown performs at Upper Jay Arts Center

UPPER JAY — Nora Brown will perform at the Upper Jay Arts Center at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7.

The suggested donation is $15.

Brown started learning ukulele at age 6 from the late Shlomo Pestcoe. With a focus on old-time music, he laid a foundation of love of music and the community it creates, and he instilled in her the lesson that music is meant to be shared.

Now 13 years old, Brown plays banjo and accordion. She plays and sings with many of her old-time mentors, including fiddler Stephanie Coleman, under the band name Little Leatherwood, and harmonica player Trip Henderson, under the band name Tin+Bone.

Brown has played on the Floyd Radio Show in Floyd, Virginia, the Washington Square Park Folk Festival, Brooklyn Folk Festival, Brooklyn Americana Festival, Oldtone Roots Music Festival, both Summer and Winter Hoots at the Ashokan Center and NYC Trad Fest. She has had multiple month-long residencies at famed Barbes in Brooklyn.
