The Goodbye Girls are an exciting new quartet from Boston. These four musicians from the US, Canada, and Sweden formed the band out of a common love for old-time, traditional bluegrass and Swedish traditional music. Lena Jonsson on fiddle, Allison de Groot on clawhammer banjo, Brittany Karlson on bass, and Molly Tuttle on guitar & lead vocals are individually some of the best acoustic musicians around, and together they create a sound that is exciting, fresh and full of energy.
With international tours under their belt, bookings at festivals like Newport Folk Festival & Stockholm Folk Festival, reaching #1 on the Americana airplay direct charts, The Goodbye Girls are turning heads right out of the gate. The band has a dedication to honoring the musical styles in which they are rooted, and together they are re-imagining the repertoire in a unique and exciting way. Their original material sits comfortably between a raging old-time tune, a traditional bluegrass song or a Swedish polska in a playful balance between new and old.
