Elizabeth Barraclough is an American musician whose songs span the genres of folk, country, rock and pop.[1] She was managed by Bob Dylan's manager Albert Grossman,[1] and is perhaps best known for having played both live and on record with Paul Butterfield, Charlie McCoy, Kenny Buttrey, and Todd Rundgren.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Barraclough originated in New Mexico before moving to the eastern coast of the United States.[2] She dated Paul Butterfield for a period of time in the 1970s.[3]


During her career, she released two albums, a self-titled record in 1978 and Hi! in 1979, both on Grossman's Bearsville Records. Her 1978 album spawned a 45 single, "Covered Up In Aces."[4] Her self-titled album was given warm reviews by The Village Voice's Robert Christgau as well as The Pittsburgh Press.[5][6]

Barraclough performed "Covered Up In Aces" on The Old Grey Whistle Test during an episode documenting the 1977 Bearsville Picnic in Woodstock, New York.
