Meeting as students in the American Roots Music Program at the Berklee College of Music, four young women from the US, Canada, and Sweden have formed a new roots/Americana aggregation which they call The Goodbye Girls.
The Girls are Lena Jonsson on fiddle, Allison de Groot on banjo, Brittany Karlson on bass, and Molly Tuttle on guitar. All four sing and contribute original music to the group, which is spending much of the Summer touring in Sweden, supported by the Cultural Council of Västra Götaland.
As an introduction, here’s a video they put together, using photos and a track they have recently recorded…
…and one they shot live in the Berklee radio studio.
Photos from their time in Sweden are being posted on the Girls’ Facebook page.
