Free Download from Pioneering Women of Bluegrass

Posted on: Aug 8, 2011 @ 5:16:47 pm

Free Download: Cowboy Jim from the album Pioneering Women of Bluegrass, performed by Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard.

When Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard recorded these songs in the mid-1960s, bluegrass music was dominated by male performers. They selected their favorite songs and arranged them for a stellar group of sidemen—bluegrass legends Lamar Grier, Chubby Wise, David Grisman, and Billy Baker. Their widely admired performances made them role models for future generations of women in bluegrass.
