The November/December issue of Bluegrass Music Profiles is in the mail, with Rhonda Vincent on the cover. Publishers Kevin and Lori Kerfoot tell us that this is their first Women In Bluegrass edition – an “all girls issue” – something they plan to make into an annual project at BMP.
In addition to the cover feature – an interview with Rhonda – there are interviews with Claire Lynch, Dale Ann Bradley, Alecia Nugent, Alison Brown, Missy Raines, Martha Adcock, Sandy Cherryholmes, Dixie Hall and Lorraine Jordan.
Here’s how the Kerfoots describe this issue:
Rhonda discusses her new Christmas album as well as how she looks at the controversy created by her All American Bluegrass Girl project and how she decided on which photo to finally use for the cover.
Claire opens up about the reason for her absence from touring and recording and why her new CD is titled New Day.
You’ll also learn Sandy Cherryholmes’ favorite food, why Martha Adcock is in the studio and where Missy Raines got her 1937 Kay bass.
The issue also has a photograph of Josh Graves at his last performance, the details of his funeral, and Jerry Douglas and Phil Leadbetter’s thoughts on the Dobro world losing its King.
You can read portions of the Rhonda Vincent interview, and find subscription details on the BMP web site.
