American all girl string band Uncle Earl play Tilley’s 20th March.

By Ladylike - 18 March 2010 4

Is anyone else here a fan of bluegrass? 

A friend just sent me this info:

Uncle Earl is an American stringband whose sound ranges from raucous to refined. An all-woman lineup presents traditional and original music that’s both feminine and powerfully danceable. Now in its tenth year, Uncle Earl has toured  the United States and Europe, and has released two award-winning albums on the Rounder Records label. They’ve worked with producers Dirk Powell (Cold Mountain, Joan Baez band), and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), who called the album Waterloo, Tennessee “definitely one of the most enjoyable productions that I have ever been involved with.”

“They’re a cross between old-time music and bluegrass, you know? It’s unusual, but I tell you they’re doing it right.” Del McCoury in Rolling Stone

I realise I’m a simple male….but WTF is feminine music…I thought music was one area that was non-gender specific (flame suit on) … please enlighten me

Unfortunately I’ll be out of town of this one. ’tis a crying shame, for Uncle Earl’s melodies really get me going.
