Feed Florida is a weekly ACMA sponsored event raising money for our local food bank. Each Monday will feature a different musical guest with all proceeds going directly to the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida.
Hosting the series is ACMA member Kim Mayfield.
This week our featured act is Elizabeth Lockhart.
Elizabeth Lockhart was just six years old when her voice brought chills to audiences during solo performances as she delivered gospel music with a rich, full vocal range. She was selected to open for Reba McEntire at age 12 and chose to study Opera Performance at North Carolina School of the Arts, reaching the professional staus of opera singer.
Elizabeth spent most of her early career performing and teaching classical music, theatre and art song literature. But it was when she found folk/roots music that she was inspired to develop her self-taught guitar and writing style. Reminiscent of 60’s folk revival women icons such as Joan Baez, Judy Collins, and Joanie Mitchell. Elizabeth Lockhart has the ability to tug at a listener’s heart strings through her haunting melodies, stories and rich vocals.
