2021 Women in Bluegrass Online Panel Discussion

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

In January, the International Bluegrass Music Association hosted a Women in Bluegrass summit, which included panel discussions and presentations on gender equity from renowned artists and women in the music business.

Vickie Posey, one of the co-founders of the Raleigh chapter of The Handsome Ladies (and a PineCone member!), was inspired to host a discussion at the next Raleigh Handsome Ladies gathering to continue that conversation here.

The event is open to anyone, and it will also be archived on PineCone’s YouTube channel for on-demand viewing.

PineCone’s Jamie Katz Court will moderate the discussion, which includes panelists Nancy Cardwell, Executive Director of the IBMA Foundation and a musician herself; fiddler Pattie Hopkins Kinlaw, who plays fiddle and sings with Hank, Pattie, and The Current, in addition to teaching; Jessie Lang, a freshman at Belmont University studying commercial music, with guitar as her primary instrument; Leslie Brown, bass player and songwriter for Dewey & Leslie Brown and The Carolina Gentlemen; and Lynda Dawson of Kickin’ Grass and Lynda and Pattie.

The Handsome Ladies is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2012 to promote and support women bluegrass players of all levels. With over four hundred members across the country, we host monthly Ladies’ jams in the San Francisco Bay Area, Boston, Portland, Nashville, Chicago, Raleigh and Seattle, participate at bluegrass festivals, and hold educational workshops and events. We are committed to providing opportunities for the advancement of female musicians within the bluegrass community, while helping to preserve the traditions and culture of bluegrass and American roots music.

The discussion will be recorded and archived on PineCone’s YouTube channel.
