Coulee Creek Celebrates Bluegrass Pioneers Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard

In the summer of 2020, a group of musicians met in an open-air pavilion in a small town along the banks of the Mississippi. The musicians, of the band Coulee Creek, represented a variety of musical influences and training in jazz, blues, country, classical, and bluegrass that would all come together over a period of five months. They brought in a poet to write and record four original poems for the project, providing new connections for the old-time music and the lyrics of two bluegrass pioneers.
