The Women in String Bands album will be officially launched at Mountaingrass 2017 with a special concert on Saturday evening at 7:00 pm in the festival’s main marquee.
This project was made possible through Folk Alliance of Australia. The aim of the project was to celebrate and promote women in string bands in Australasia and those who collaborate with and support them.
Through this project, the Australasian Bluegrass and Old-Time Music Association (ABOTMA) aims to inspire and promote the participation of Australasian female musicians playing acoustic string band music.
The Women in String Bands Project CD includes new and already published materials showcasing the creative output of Australasian women playing string band music rooted in bluegrass, old-time acoustic and other related folk styles.
This project was made possible by the generosity of the Folk Alliance of Australia, ABOTMA, Alexander Bell Sound Studios and the artists involved.
Sincere congratulations to all of those involved from Australian Bluegrass.com.
