WISB Project

Women In String Bands Project

 

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 compilation comprises songs and tunes featuring Australian women playing music rooted in bluegrass, old time acoustic string music and other related folk styles.

This CD was made possible by the generosity of the Folk Alliance of AustraliaABOTMA, Alexander Bell Sound Studios and all artists involved.
