The New York Music Theater Festival 2017 Next Link Project
From behind bars to country music stars!
The year is 1938 and The Goree All-Girl String Band is the biggest new radio sensation in Texas. They also happen to be convicted criminals. The six band members teach themselves music from behind bars and earn a slot on a prison-based radio program. Through sisterhood, determination, and a little bit of luck, these women work (and play) together to fiddle their way to freedom. Inspired by a true story, THE GOREE ALL-GIRL STRING BAND is a tale of redemption that features an ensemble of actor-musicians performing a brand new country score.
