A hardworking young folksinger with an impressive pedigree — educated at Berklee College of Music and co-winner of the 2009 Mountain Stage New Song Contest, among many other honors — Liz Longley is particularly highly regarded for her personal, emotionally engaging songwriting. Longley has already opened for the likes of Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin, but she takes one of her highest-profile stages yet when she performs live at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I. Expect to hear songs from her brand-new album, Hot Loose Wire.
