Welcome to our third annual women in country & Americana month
You might know the drill by now, if not here it is. We spend one month each year celebrating the fantastic music that comes from women in the country and Americana genres. We're stretching our wings a little this year, moving further than just the artists who perform the songs. We've got songwriters, PR people, industry figures, and lots more.
In terms of the artists, we've established and new, big and small, and everything in-between. We've tried to cover the many sounds and sub-genres that form the rich breadth that is country & Americana.
As well as solo artists, we're talking to all female groups, and we'll be looking at the impact of women-led super groups over the last twelve months, including folk powerhouse I'm With Her, country megastars Pistol Annies and the new genre-agnosticThe Highwomen.
Who have we got for you to hear from, well it's a long list, a talented list, and a list of the most important people in country & Americana now and in the next few years. With more to come, confirmed and ready to go so far are:
Gill Tee from Black Deer Festival
Emily Scott Robinson
Tanya Trotter from The War and Treaty
Tara & Chess from The Wandering Hearts
