Elizabeth Morgan - She's Folks (Autumn 2017)



Elizabeth Morgan’s She’s Folks! is a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, and a lot of laughs. Journey from the city to farm country and back again through folk and country music, hilarious stories, soaring harmonies, and a wry view of the folks back home.

With our signature Story, Song, and Sass, we narratively travel our native Midwestern byways, railroads, and fields by truck, train and tractor, introducing the audience to original tunes such as "I-90 Take Me Home," "Little Town Girl," Trains," "The Threshold," "Back Home," and "The Truck Stop Where I Hung Out in High School," as well as beloved folk songs, covers, and hymns. 

We happily sit between genres and art forms integrating traditional folk, folk rock, bluegrass, gospel, and country music, comedy, theatre, and memoir all with a Midwestern spin. The ties that binds is story. 

 She's Folks! is a love letter to the country from a kid who couldn't wait to leave. Where do we belong if we walk away?  We reckon, "Home isn't the place, it's the folks." 

Elizabeth Morgan is an actor, singer, writer, musician, and raconteur.  “Betsy” grew up amongst ragweed and farm animals in rural northwestern Ohio. She graduated from Miami University (OH) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. In 2004, she moved to Chicago where she has performed with many theatre companies including Backstage, Boho, Circle, City Lit, Hell in a Handbag, Kokandy Productions, Quest, and Theatre Building Chicago.  She will be appearing in Hell in a Handbag’s upcoming parody of Bewitched! as Samantha Stephens.

Betsy is known for her diverse performance resume including industrial film,  musical theatre, comedy, high camp, drama, and collaboratively devised theatre, as well as her passion for traditional folk music, bluegrass and early country. 

Betsy currently writes and stars in her onstage memoir She’s Folks!, as well as her weekly web series, Old Timey Tuesdays. She will be releasing her album, She’s Folks this fall. She is represented by Big Mouth Talent.
