Stephanie Ledgin has worked for many years as a photographer, journalist, radio announcer, editor and event producer in the world of bluegrass, old time and folk music. Her 2004 book, Homegrown Music: Discovering Bluegrass has been heralded as a crucial primer for folks just learning about the music – or looking for some insights into its history and culture. From Every Stage: Images of America’s Roots Music, was published in 2005, and includes 200 photos she has taken at festivals and concerts over the past thirty years.
In April of this year, Ledgin will be honored at the Governor’s Cultural Reception at Drumthwacket, the official residence of the Governor of New Jersey. This event is designed to recognize authors and literary figures from New Jersey, and both Gov. Corzine and Sec. of State Wells will be in attendance to present the honors.
