Sarrah Ellen MacDonald and Tonia Conner

From honky-tonk to the church house, Sarrah Ellen McDonald and Tonia Conner are among the finest singers of traditional Appalachian songs in all of North Georgia. Their lovely blend is as close as you can get to sister harmony without actually being kin.

Well-versed in traditional Appalachian music, Tonia and Sarrah Ellen have made a significant contribution to the preservation of the music & culture of the mountains of North Georgia as educators with the Lumpkin County School System.  Their leadership roles in Georgia Pick & Bow Traditional Music School have passed along the love of playing and singing traditional music to hundreds of budding musicians in their mountain community.
