It’s hard to believe it’s been four years since Della Mae last performed as part of Watermelon Wednesdays. And it’s hard to find another Nashville-based, mostly bluegrass and all-female ensemble with such heart and soul and hot licks. This is a group of women who play with both warmth and power. Bluegrass has grown and changed, and Della Mae has been leading the charge.
Della Mae is a GRAMMY-nominated, Nashville-based, string band made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Celia Woodsmith, 2-time national champion fiddle player Kimber Ludiker, mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner, and upright bassist Zoe Guigueno. Hailing from across North America, and reared in diverse musical styles, they are one of the most charismatic and engaging roots bands touring today. They have traveled to over 30 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.
Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.
