The Women in String Bands Project CD proudly presented by ABOTMA comprises tracks from women playing traditional string band music, including new and already published materials, in order to showcase the creative output of Australian women playing acoustic stringed instruments rooted in bluegrass, old time acoustic string music and other related folk styles.
Celebrating women in string bands in Australia and those who collaborate and support them. Women are underrepresented in music in Australia. ABOTMA seeks to promote the participation of Australian female musicians and to inspire more women to participate and perform in playing acoustic string band music.
This CD was made possible by the generosity of the Folk Alliance of Australia, ABOTMA, Alexander Bell Sound Studios and all artists involved.
