As a viewer you'll be mesmerized to learn about this group of trail-blazing and inspiring women roots musicians from Appalachian to Zydeco - that's "A to Z". It covers musical genres you'd expect: lots of blues, old time, Cajun, plus a few special niches of American musical roots you might not think of at all.
You'll see heavy hitters like Alice Gerrard, Ann Savoy, Rhiannon Giddens of The Carolina Chocolate Drops/ Courtesy of Nonesuch Records, Ruthie Foster, Deanna Bogart, Gaye Adegbalola, Eden Brent and some amazing women you never know existed - and who'd likely slip into oblivion if not the important dedication of MusicBox Project's work.
