The Banjo Babes Calendar & Album (and Tour) is a collective, grassroots celebration of professional women banjo players. Showcasing songs and professional promotion for emerging and established lady banjo artists from around the world, the project aims to create a fun community around celebrating women who play banjo and their music.
From Bluegrass to Old-Time and music in between and beyond – The Banjo Babes Calendar & Album is an annual anthology of everything banjo, old and new, a snapshot in time of where banjo music has been – and where it going – according to women folk. We invite you to meet the featured artists, browse our catalog of annual limited-edition releases, or get involved in the project as an advertising sponsor, distributor, show partner, or featured artist!
The mission of the Banjo Babes Calendar & Album is to celebrate the music of women who play banjo by creating and sustaining one of the most comprehensive, inclusive and diverse annual compilation anthologies via a fun, professional, and empowering project that includes artistic photography in a calendar and world-class music on an album.
Thank you to all the artists, fans, supporters, and collaborators alike who have made this joyful project possible each year. Anticipating its fourth release celebrating 2017, we look forward to sharing the next edition of the world’s most beloved, annual grassroots women’s banjo music anthology!
The project happens each year, and each edition features over a dozen artists. Focused on promoting the music of women banjo artists – we celebrate diversity, welcome all, and are thrilled to share these albums with the world. The calendar and album feature songs and images provided by each of the artists each year in conjunction with a new theme.
