Yodelady is thrilled to be making our first CD!  It will be loaded with our favorite old songs and traditional fiddle tunes.  We'll each be singing a track or two and will be sharing duties on fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukulele and bass. 

Singing and playing old time music together is just about our favorite thing,  and we're having a blast getting a pile of tracks ready to share with you.  By backing this project you'll bring our dream to fruition by providing the capital needed to record, engineer, and produce this debut album.  We are so grateful for our supportive and creative musical community and know there is just no way we could pull this off without your help.  We thank you in advance for your interest and hope you'll consider contributing at any level. 

We are recording this album at Neanderhall Studio in downtown Olympia, Washington and it will be engineered and mastered by Matt Buscher.  Our fundraising goal is the amount needed to pay for recording and engineering, artwork, CD production, and distribution.  Any remaining funds will go towards promotional materials, travel expenses, and (if we're really lucky) a future recording.

Risks and challenges

Working with a skilled sound engineer at Neanderhall Studio eliminates many potential risks regarding the technical details of recording a great-sounding album. We're also fortunate to be surrounded by seasoned musicians who've been down this road many-a-time before and are giving us excellent guidance every step of the way.

As such, it's those two pesky realities of time and money that are our primary risks. We are all so excited about this project that we've been fully committed to the process of selecting, arranging and rehearsing material, scheduling studio time and designing artwork. Meeting our fundraising goal will provide the capital needed to complete the project and get it into your hands.
