He instilled in her the lesson that music is meant to be shared. Now , Nora plays and sings solo shows and sometimes plays with many of her old time mentors including fiddler Stephanie Coleman, under the band name Little Leatherwood and harmonica master Trip Henderson under the band name Tin + Bone. She is joined tonight by her friend and mentor, fiddler Stephanie Coleman.
