Best Local Traditional Folk Act: Elise Witt

Staff Pick

To confine ELISE WITT to the narrow realm of “traditional folk” would be a mistake. True, those are her roots, and she’s careful not to lose sight of folk’s long-standing role in social change. Her “Open the Window” is destined to become a new signature song for change, in fact. With Witt, the notion of song that’s communal, rather than just performed by an artist, is important. But Witt’s absorption of song traditions from across the world -— what she describes as “global, local and homemade songs” -— says more about what folk represents in the 21st century.
