Hurdy Gurdy Girls
Petticoats, pistols, music, miners, and dancing….the Hurdy Gurdy Girls of the early 1900’s saw it all! These ladies lived a rugged life in the untamed, gem laden mountains of Idaho, entertaining miners by playing music and dancing with the men after the show. Idaho was built on the richness of a mining history. ….but wait!……There’s still gold in them there hills and the Hurdy Gurdy Girls are still around.
Hurdy Gurdy Girls is an all girl string band from Hailey, Idaho performing original songs steeped in an old-time music feel sprinkled with traditional fiddle tunes. The music will give you a porch swinging feeling mixed with a honky-tonk vibe, and it will always leave you feeling good and tapping your toes. Their songs are about burning desires, life’s tough decisions, family, and of course, finding your way to the mountains we call home. HGG formed nine years ago with Annie Maude on fiddle and mandolin, Natalie Rose driving the train with her stand up bass, Joy Lee on guitar and all the gals on vocals. Come out to experience the music of the Hurdy Gurdy Girls….you might even get a dance afterwards!
