Marteka Lake

Track #1 - "Cripple Creek"

Marteka Lake (September)

West Virginia, USA

Marteka Lake started playing banjo when she was thirteen, and has made music as a duo with her guitar-picking brother, William, ever since. The siblings have appeared on PBS, Bluehighways and RFDTV with the likes of JD Crowe, Ron Block and Tim O’Brien. Impressed with her playing prowess, Stelling Banjos contacted fifteen-year-old Lake and decided to name a banjo line after her - the Stelling Marteka Challenge. Lake fell in love with the banjo and decided to start learning to play the moment she heard Earl Scruggs end the tune “Little Darlin Pal O’ Mine.”
