About Mother Banjo

Mother Banjo is a one-woman band featuring Ellen Stanley on banjo and vocals. Selected as a 2008 Midwest Finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, the Minneapolis singer/songwriter has garnered high praise for her mix of original indie-folk and Americana songs that contain poetic lyrics and haunting vocals. Following up on her success of her EP Swing Low, Mother Banjo releases her first full-length album The Sad and Found, produced by Darren Jackson (Kid Dakota, The Hopefuls) and John Hermanson (Storyhill, The Hopefuls) and released on her own label So Low Recordings.

An engaging live performer, Mother Banjo weaves humorous stories with fun covers and her own original material. She has performed at prestigious venues like The Ark (Ann Arbor, MI) and has shared the stage with such notable songwriters as Cliff Eberhardt and Tracy Grammer. She showcased at the 2010 International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, TN and is touring throughout the country in support of her new album.
