    Default Pioneering Women of Bluegrass

    New tunes (to me) featuring fine vocals, tune selection, musicianship featuring some mandolin picking licks from the big leagues. I’m not a bluegrass fan by any means but……..

    Album name:
    Pioneering Women of Bluegrass
    By:
    Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard

    Apparently from 1996. Reminds me of the country station blaring music from cheap speakers at the IGA in Stuart, Virginia.

    One of my favorites. I agree with Charley.

    "The Definitive Edition" of this album is out (digitally) and contains 28 songs. You can get a download (even FLAC) at bandcamp. Great album.

    I’m really enjoying the two records, especially the contributions of the mandolin player, young David Grisman.

    I believe the records are originally from 1965 and 1973.

    Check out some of Hazel Dickens recordings on her own. Here's her discography. She was a powerful song writer.

    Matt, there is no reason to have two separate threads about this.

    I realize that. Once you mistakenly duplicate a Post there doesn't seem a way to delete it. Perhaps you could shed a bit of light on this matter?

    Hey Matt, I think one of the moderators has to be aware of the threads and merge them.
