We host monthly jams and workshops in each of our chapter cities, manage a thriving Facebook group with hundreds of followers, and actively participate in local bluegrass festivals, radio shows, and music camps. If you’re a go-getting, bluegrass-picker who wants to be a part of this amazing organization, work alongside four other hardworking Handsome Ladies, and directly contribute to the success of our mission to support and encourage women bluegrassers, we want to hear from you!

Have impeccable follow-through (If you commit to an action item, we need to be able to count on you)
Play a bluegrass instrument (beginner-level and up is A-OK, but you must be comfortable leading a jam)

Who we are:
The Handsome Ladies board is a collective of four talented, go-getting, bluegrass-picking ladies with diverse backgrounds that include graphic design, marketing, lighting design, food & beverage, and non-profit work. We’re not only coworkers but also friends in real-life. We’re spread out across three cities: San Francisco, Seattle and Nashville, and while we don’t hang out in person as much as we’d like, we work together closely to ensure continual growth and success of The Handsome Ladies’ mission.
**The Handsome Ladies is run on volunteer power and this is a volunteer position**
