“Mountain Dove’s Song”
Annie Bartholomew Bio
Through historic source material and modern songwriting forms, Sisters of White Chapel seeks to bring to light the lesser known histories of women who came North.
Led by Juneau songwriter, Annie Bartholomew, these songs celebrate the struggle and sacrifice made by those who risked safety and virtue for a chance of a better life.
Annie developed the project in the Yukon as the March 2019 Jenni House artist in residence where she woodshedded with her banjo in a timber frame log cabin. She has shared this project at the 2019 Alaska Historical Society and Alaska Museums Conference, the Alaska Folk Festival, the Alaska Musicians Summit at the Anchorage Museum, CD Baby’s DIY Musician Conference in Austin, in Montreal with the Alaska Room at Folk Alliance & many more spaces and places.
The studio album of songs funded in part by the Rasmuson Foundation Individual Artist Award is set to be released in 2022 with Gustavus music producer Justin Smith of Rusty Recordings.
