Quitman’s Monica Rizzio Stops in Winnsboro During Texas Tour
Monica Rizzio is bringing her “Back to Texas” tour to The Bowery Stage in Winnsboro on May 13. She grew up in Quitman, won blue ribbons at the Winnsboro Rodeo and went on to study music at Belmont University before relocating up north to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She was the front woman in a touring folk band named Tripping Lily for 10 years before leaving the band to get back to her Texas roots style of music. Her album Washashore Cowgirl is on the Americana charts and charted as high as No. 2 on the Folk charts. The name comes from what the locals call someone who moves to Cape Cod but was not born there, a Washashore, and since she’s from Texas they added Cowgirl to her nickname.
