Sheila Kay Adams comes from a place in Madison County, North Carolina, renowned for its unbroken tradition of unaccompanied ballad singing. Like her book of the same name, Come Go Home with Me provides a rare portrait of the distinctive mountain community. In addition to being a delightful raconteur of mountain life. Sheila is an accomplished clawhammer style banjo player. Her artistry conveys a powerful sense of family and place.

A former public school teacher, she now pursues a career sharing the music, stories and heritage of her mountain culture. In 2013, Sheila received the prestigious NEA National Heritage Fellowship and she received the 2016 North Carolina Heritage Award.
