Della Mae is a GRAMMY-nominated, Nashville-based, all-female string band made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Celia Woodsmith, 2-time national champion fiddle player Kimber Ludiker, mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner, and upright bassist Zoe Guigueno.
Hailing from across North America, and reared in diverse musical styles, they are one of the most charismatic and engaging roots bands touring today. They have traveled to over 30 countries spreading peace and understanding through music.
Della Mae has established a reputation as a charismatic, hard-touring live act, building a large and enthusiastic fan base while racking up massive amounts of critical acclaim. I can attest to this, I'm a HUGE FAN of these women.
Their unmistakably contemporary relevance places them alongside such tradition- and socially-conscious young acts as the Avett Brothers, Punch Brothers, the Lumineers, and Shovels & Rope.
And of special note to regional music fans: guitarist/vocalist Celia Woodsmith is a Vermont native (Norwich) and former member of the celebrated roots duo Avi & Celia.
Mandolinist Jenni Lyn Gardner
Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.
