Wookalily in new Daughters of Bluegrass project

Legendary country and bluegrass songwriters Tom T. and Miss Dixie Hall of Good Home Grown Music will hear their latest 'Daughters of Bluegrass' four-CD, 69-song project Pickin' like a girl launched at 10.00 a.m. (CST) tomorrow, Wednesday 30 January, on Sirius-XM satellite radio, on Kyle Cantrell's 'Bluegrass Junction' show. The project is also scheduled to be played on Sirius on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday as part of the launch. Tom T. and Miss Dixie announce:

This project took around a year and a half in the making. It would, of course, have been completed sooner but we just couldn't quit! If the truth were told there really is no stopping place. There is just too much female talent out there that should not pass unheard.

Why is this mentioned on the BIB? Because track #17 on the first disc, the Dixie Hall composition 'To a dove', is performed by an all-woman band from Northern Ireland - Wookalily (Meghan McWilliams, lead vocals; Ruth Millar, high harmony vocals; Siobhan Skates, high harmony vocals, Cajon; Adele Ingram, low harmony vocals, rhythm guitar; Ruth Millar, fiddle; Sharon Morgan, banjo; Frances Mooney, bass; Rebekah Long, bowed bass), and the track was recorded by John Rossi at Boi-oinngg Studios in Northern Ireland.The BIB congratulates Wookalily in joining the number of Irish performers of Americana music who are making their mark on the US scene, in very distinguished company.
