The first few chapters can make or break most books. If they don’t succeed in peeking your interest, you may never come to find how the story ends. It has been in the works for some time, getting our latest two chapters up in running in Seattle and Nashville. Delicate clippings that were each very carefuslly rooted in their new towns. Our budding organization is building upon a rich history and we want to turn the pages, chapter by chapter, taking all of you with us!
The Handsome Ladies Seattle Chapter
Join in every 3rd Monday at Al's Tavern.
The Handsome Ladies Nashville Chapter
Message for details!
Not to fear, The Handsome Ladies in the Bay Area is still thriving with a 3rd Monday monthly jam at our favorite local bluegrass haunt, Amnesia, which turned two last May, and a more intimate private jam in Berkeley.
Packed House Jam in Berkeley
Join in every 2nd Tuesday.
As we spread the mission of The Handsome Ladies with these new chapters, we are humbled by the dedication of everyone to hone their bluegrass skills, thankful for our welcoming communities, and empowered to keep growing to serve all the women pickers out there while participating in the broader bluegrass community as a whole.
While I’m on the topic of serving the greater bluegrass community, I’d like to take a moment to let you know that both Jessica Furui and I are running for the board of the California Bluegrass Association! While Jessica is a current board member, doing fabulous work, this is my inaugural run and I hope to join the ranks of this long standing organization. I encourage all of our California locals to:
- Consider becoming a CBA member, if you are not already - join here
- Read the candidate statements of those running for the board
- Last but not least, participate by casting your VOTE!
