  • Description

    Sonya Cohen Cramer (1965-2015) was raised in a family committed to revitalizing the oldest songs of the American musical canon. Like her father John Cohen of The New Lost City Ramblers, Sonya shared a belief in the transformative qualities of folk songs and traditional ballads. 'You've Been a Friend to Me' is the first collection featuring Sonya's singing, and it reveals the full arc of her musical life through collaborations with her aunt Peggy Seeger, uncle Pete Seeger, Elizabeth Mitchell, Daniel Littleton, and the folk-fusion group Last Forever.

    While shaped by the roots of her family tree, the radiating and clear sound of Sonya's voice is distinctly her own.
