The Wonder Women of Food and Wine
With Britt Arnesen
Folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Britt Arnesen is no stranger to the mountains, having grown up in Alaska before moving to Missoula, Montana, to join the area’s thriving bluegrass scene. After years of study under the region’s talented pickers, Arnesen is now an integral player. In 2014, she became the first woman to join Missoula’s 30-year bluegrass institution Pinegrass, and she now fronts the band.
In 2018, Arnesen released her seventh full-length album, Dream in Blue, a solo acoustic collection of original songs played on an 1891 Martin guitar. The album was critically acclaimed for its timeless appeal, thoughtful lyrics and technical achievement. Arnesen puts a personal spin on the Western tradition, updating it for today’s listener.
