Presenting the first-annual Banjo Babes 2014 Calendar and Album! We have launched this early-pledge campaign in order to make the entire project possible. We will only be printing one run of calendar and albums, so please order to day to secure your copy! Artists will have a LIMITED QUANTITY available for direct purchase over the holidays, but ordering now is the best way to make sure you get one! AND, the best part, is that you pay the same retail price ($20 + shipping) during our pledge drive (or less if you order more than one!).
Why a pre-pledge campaign? There are many upfront costs for this artits to produce such a project - such as graphic design, mastering of the compilation album, placing an order, promotion, and shipping. All of the artists in this calendar are semi- or fully-professional musicians - your purchase directly supports these emerging artists! On behalf of all of the banjo babes - thank you for your support and your pledge! Your pledge today not only delivers a brand-spanking-new 2014 Banjo Babes Calendar & Album to your doorstep in December, but you also go down in banjo babes history as a project-backer for the first-annual calendar! Thank you so much, and we hope you enjoy this timeless calendar and exciting album!
Calendar & Album Concept
Thank you for your interest in pledging for the much-anticipated inaugural Banjo Babes Calendar & Album! We are very excited to be launching this much-anticipated calendar and album showcasing twelve talented women of the five-string banjo from around the world. Each month features a new artist in a “pin-up” style portrait shot just for this calendar, and the accompanying album is comprised of a song from each artist!
Meet the 2014 Banjo Babes
Please allow us to introduce the Banjo Babes for 2014 to, and to start drumming up some excitement!
(Please note that not all of these artists are officially confirmed and are subject to change. All artists here have expressed interest and are finalizing their commitment.)
Oh, and if you are the counting-type, then yes! There are more than twelve! That's right, you get a few bonus babes in the back of the calendar. You're welcome!
Note: Just in case you were wondering…these are NOT the calendar photos. Each artist is having a professional pin-up style portrait taken – and those are a surprise!
