About Allison Williams
Singer/songwriter and traditional musician Allison Williams plays old-time clawhammer banjo in a modern context.
A native of the Arkansas Ozarks, Allison got her start as a punk rock musician before rediscovering her musical roots. Several years in the mountains of North Carolina educated her in Southern banjo styles, especially the fast, distinctive styles of Hobart Smith and Wade Ward.
