New Daughters of Bluegrass Project Shaping Up!

Image634621288060694889We heard from confidential sources several months ago about a brand new Daughters of Bluegrass Recording Project but were sworn to secrecy with a threat of being bound and gagged with banjo strings and bow hair.

But now the news is out.  Good Home Grown Music has confirmed in an email to broadcasters that there is a new recording underway.
It's been said numerous times that Carolina Road is the hardest working bunch in bluegrass.  Actually, they were neck and neck with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver but then Lorraine took on the extra chore of shaving her legs to qualify as a Daughter of Bluegrass!  Speaking of whom, YES, there is another Daughter's project of Ms. Dixie's in the works here at Good Home Grown Music.  Just kidding about the shaving of legs.  Lorraine, along with Gena Britt, thought up the Daughters many years ago and had there been such a criteria we would have known.
The award winning Daughters of Bluegrass was an idea conceived by bluegrass artists Lorraine Jordan and Gena Britt.  They decided that since there were so many great women pickers and singers in bluegrass why not bring them all together for a recording project showcasing those talents.

Their first album, “The Daughter of American Bluegrass” was released on CMH Records in 2005 and nominated later that year for the 2005 International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Recorded Event of the Year.  Since that time, the Daughters have recorded two more albums including: “Back to the Wellwinner of the 2006 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year and “Bluegrass Bouquet,” winner of the 2009 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year for the song, “Proud to be a Daughter.”
