First Ladies of Bluegrass at RockyGrass 2018 – photo by Pete Wernick
The First Ladies of Bluegrass, initially assembled by Alison Brown for a video with her Deering Julia Belle banjo, and who recorded together for Missy Raines’ upcoming Compass recording, Traveller, performed this weekend at RockyGrass in Lyons, CO. The group consists of Raines on bass, with Becky Buller on fiddle, Sierra Hull on mandolin, Molly Tuttle on guitar, and Alison on banjo. They, along with special guests Phoebe Hunt and Sally Van Meter, performed a set that was a big hit with the festival crowd.
The Ladies will also perform during Wide Open Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC following the IBMA World of Bluegrass convention in late September.
Thanks to Kevin Slick, President of the The Colorado Bluegrass Music Society, and Pete Wernick for the photos.
