Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass

Photo for Ad 133006

Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass. The first book devoted entirely to women in bluegrass, Pretty Good for a Girl documents the lives of more than seventy women whose vibrant contributions to the development of bluegrass have been, for the most part, overlooked.

Accessibly written and organized by decade, the book begins with Sally Ann Forrester, who played accordion and sang with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys from 1943 to 1946, and continues into the present with artists such as Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, and the Dixie Chicks. Drawing from extensive interviews, well-known banjoist Murphy Hicks Henry gives voice to women performers and innovators throughout bluegrass's history, including such pioneers as Bessie Lee Mauldin, Wilma Lee Cooper, and Roni and Donna Stoneman; family bands including the Lewises, Whites, and McLains; and later pathbreaking performers such as the Buffalo Gals and other all-girl bands, Laurie Lewis, Lynn Morris, Missy Raines, and many others.

Here is the blog that Murphy wrote about the book.

Thanks for your interest in Pretty Good for a Girl. We are happy for you to order it from Amazon or from your favorite bookseller. Amazon also offers it on Kindle. (We love Amazon, but can't compete with them price-wise!)
