Nanci Griffith

musician, songwriter
Born: 7/6/1953
Birthplace: Austin, Texas

Singer-songwriter whose intelligent rendering of folk and “rockabilly” music has created a small legion of dedicated fans. Griffith has enjoyed some commercial success, with albums such as Storms (1987) and songs such as “I Knew Love” (1988) that reached the country charts. But critics and dedicated fans best know her for efforts such as Other Voices, Other Rooms (1993), her own dedication album in which she covers and plays with the likes of Emmylou Harris, John Prine, and Frank Christian.
