Word of South

Lis and Lon Williamson

Lon and Elisabeth Williamson, musical and life partners for over 40 years, are well known around the Sunshine State for their artistry as a duo, blending eloquent harmonies with accomplished musicianship. Add to that their dynamic repertoire of original, old-time, jazz, swing, and bluegrass tunes and you’ll have a show that you’re not likely to soon forget. They are also members many bands around Florida which include Medicine Springs, The Driftwoods and The Gatorbone Trio. This weekend they’ll be appearing with Sue Tice, a wonderful fiddler who hails originally from Maryland. When not on the road, the Williamsons spend time at their home deep in the Florida sandhills, where Lon builds beautiful instruments (Williamson Mandolins and More) and Lis creates original millinery, greeting cards and prints at her workshop, The Land of Flowers. 

Lis and Lon will be appearing with the musician Frank Lindamood at this year’s Word of South.
