This Saturday we are featuring award-winning musician Liz Barnez! Liz was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and grew up inspired by jazz, blues, folk, gospel, R&B, Dixieland, funk, and parade music. She embraced the diversity of her musical and creative upbringing and transformed those into her own eclectic style of music. Liz Barnez started her musical career in the clubs and festivals in her hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana. She moved to Colorado in the late 1980’s and has been a mainstay in that music community since then. Voted by her peers as the “Best Singer-Songwriter Female” in the FoCoMA (Fort Collins Musicians Association) Peer Awards 2020. Inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame as a member of the Mother Folkers (the most carefully pronounced name in show business)in 2019. The Mother Folkers is a group of women musicians who began in the 1970’s with original members Mary Flower, Mary Stribling, Kathi DeFrancis, and Eileen Niehouse. Over the years the members have included Mollie O’Brien, Carla Skiaky, and Vicki Taylor to name a few. Liz joined the group in the early 1990’s. The Bohemian Foundation based in Fort Collins Colorado honored Liz in 2011 by including her in a mural at “Jazz Alley” in Fort Collins. The mural, by artist Terry McNerney, depicts eight musical artists chosen by Bohemian as the founders of the Fort Collins Music Scene
