Elizabeth's Song

ELIZABETH'S SONG is the true-life story of Elizabeth Cotton, the noted African American folksinger, guitarist, and songwriter. Against all odds, young Elizabeth teaches herself to play guitar left-handed on a borrowed instrument. Eventually she earns enough money to buy a guitar of her very own, and is then inspired to write her first song - the folk classic 'Freight Train' - written when she was eleven years old. Elizabeth's unique style of playing guitar (upside down and backwards) from which the term 'cotton-picking' is derived, has influenced countless other artists. Elizabeth's story is one that will inspire people of all ages.
