Before Coal Miner’s Daughters and Many-Colored Coats: Pioneering Women in Country Music

Join us on Tuesday, February 2 for a fascinating talk with Bailey George about the women who made their mark on early country music.

Traditionally, the role and widespread recognition of women in country music has been relegated to a handful of “superstars” who rose to fame in the 1960s and 1970s, but female country artists have been producing records since the beginnings of country music recording. The impact of these pioneering artists has been somewhat overshadowed by flashier, pop-oriented female artists in recent years, but without these trailblazing recordings, the country music industry as we know it would not exist.

With this talk, Bailey George will take a look at some of the forgotten female artists, musicians, writers, and performers from days long before there were coal miner’s daughters or many-colored coats.

Free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required.
