Jump Into Jamming with Chris Henry: Bluegrass Classics for Mandolin - Want to jam? Gotta know the classics! Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms, I'll Fly Away, Will The Circle Be Unbroken. These jam favorites--and 5 others--will get you going. Taught in a simple style, note-by-note, by mandolin whiz Chris Henry, these songs are easy to learn and easy to play. Bonus lessons: We show you how to shift these songs to the Key of C, where most women sing them. We also explain how to use a capo on the mandolin! Heresy? Maybe so, but it will keep you picking when the singer chooses another key!

Pretty Good For A Girl: Women In Bluegrass - The first book devoted entirely to women in bluegrass, Pretty Good for a Girl documents the lives of more than seventy women whose vibrant contributions to the development of bluegrass have been, for the most part, overlooked.

Accessibly written and organized by decade, the book begins with Sally Ann Forrester, who played accordion and sang with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys from 1943 to 1946, and continues into the present with artists such as Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, and the Dixie Chicks. Drawing from extensive interviews, well-known banjoist Murphy Hicks Henry gives voice to women performers and innovators throughout bluegrass's history, including such pioneers as Bessie Lee Mauldin, Wilma Lee Cooper, and Roni and Donna Stoneman; family bands including the Lewises, Whites, and McLains; and later pathbreaking performers such as the Buffalo Gals and other all-girl bands, Laurie Lewis, Lynn Morris, Missy Raines, and many others.

Here is the blog that Murphy wrote about the book.
