by | 27 Sep, 2008

daughtersBluegrass Bouquet is an organic all-female project from the IBMA Recorded Event award winning Daughters of Bluegrass on Blue Circle Records.

It is a landmark extravaganza featuring over fifty daughters and seventeen songs. Kicked off by the capable five-string picking of Donica Christensen the opening cut, Proud To Be a Daughter, written by Dixie Hall, expresses sentiment shared by the likes of: Dale Ann Bradley, Heather Berry, Lisa Martin, Gloria Belle, Sierra Hull, Rhonda Vincent, Lisa Ray, Linda Lay, Sally Jones, Carol Lee Cooper, Jeanie Stanley, Sonya Isaacs, Becky Isaacs Bowman, Michelle Nixon, Jeanette Williams, Sophie Haislip, Louise Tomberlain, Mindy Rakestraw, Lizzy Long, Frances Mooney, Lorraine Jordan, Annette Kelly, Lily Lieux, Dixie Hall, Judi Marshall, Beth Lawrence, Melissa Lawrence, Rebecca Frazier, Jenni Lyn Gardner, Lizzy Long, Lisa Manning.

There were no side-men on this project. All Daughters were girls such as: Gena Britt, Vicki Simmons, Megan McCormick, Becky Buller, Tina Adair, Kristin Scott Benson, Rebekah Long, Jenee Fleenor, Jeana Martin, Janice Martin, Larita Martin, Martha Adcock, Amber Burks, Beth Stevens and additional featured vocalists: Janet McGarry, Valerie Smith, Stacy York, Dara Wray, Alecia Nugent, Jennifer Strickland.

Designed to showcase the talents of women from all styles of bluegrass one main focus includes the breathtaking variety of picking, singing and writing.

Other than mastering and pressing, Bluegrass Bouquet is truly a labor of love. Monies for PR, promotion, music, writing & publishing, studio, art, graphics, food and travel were never a consideration. The master is owned by The Daughters themselves and is all about the music and illustrating the fact that women throughout the bluegrass industry are indeed worthy. These girls aim to shatter the Blueglass ceiling – that’s correct, BLUEGLASS.

Records are available from most of the girls, at CD Baby.com and Blue Circle Records.
