The Taos-based musician is the daughter of songwriter and folk musician Terry Gilkyson and sister of famed X and Lone Justice guitarist Tony Gilkyson. She released her first album, Eliza '69, in 1969 while living in Santa Fe and has since made appearances on National Public Radio, Austin City Limits, and Air America Radio, in addition to touring solo and in support of Richard Thompson, Patty Griffin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Dan Fogelberg.
