Singer and songwriter Laurelyn Dossett lives in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Her songs tend to
reflect the stories of the region, both traditional and contemporary. One of the most sought after voices in creative collaborations, she co-founded Polecat Creek in 1997.

Laurelyn is a frequent performer at regional music festivals such as Merlefest and she has been a guest on the radio show Prairie Home Companion. She has toured extensively with the North Carolina Symphony. Her song "Leaving Eden" is the title track of the Grammy nominated recent release by the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

In recent years Laurelyn has partnered with Triad Stage’s Preston Lane on five plays featuring regional folklore and original music: Brother Wolf (2006),Beautiful Star: An Appalachian Nativity (2006), Bloody Blackbeard (2008), Providence Gap (2010) and Snow Queen in 2013. Our State magazine has described them as The Rogers and Hammerstein of the Appalachians!
