Ginny's Kitchen began playing together in an overheated Manhattan kitchen in the winter of 2017. Members Libby Weitnauer, Erin Lobb, Sarah Chadwick Gibson, and A’yen Tran, find their inspiration in the vibrant tradition of women in American stringband and traditional music. Alice Gerrard, Hazel Dickens, The Coon Creek Girls, and Ginny Hawker, are among their greatest inspirations. With roots reaching from East Tennessee and Kentucky all the way up the coast to Vermont and New York City, the four women bring a unique approach to the music of their forebears. Ginny is the name of Erin’s grandmother, and her kitchen in Kentucky is where she learned her good manners.
