"Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard blur the distinctions between old-time country
music and bluegrass music. They carried forward the Appalachian mountain
style, itself influenced by old English ballads, melded it with the high lonesome
sound of Bill Monroe, and created their own special sound...[They] opened
doors for a new generation of women in traditional music, paving the way for
artists like Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Iris DeMent, Lynn Morris, Lucinda
Williams, Gillian Welch, and the Judds." - Jeff Place
