1/4/2009 Womenfolk


Today we highlighted the *Top Womenfolk CD's of 2008*, as determined by KFAI listeners, DJ's and your favorite musicians. There were so many wonderful releases this past year that we had a four way tie for the top album of the year between...

- Rosalie Sorrels - _Strangers in Another Country: The Songs of Bruce Utah Phillips_
- Jonatha Brooke - _The Works_
- Dar Williams - _Promised Land_
- Eliza Gilkyson - _Beautiful World_

But when the call went out on the air to vote between these four, Eliza Gilkyson:http://www.elizagilkyston.com won hands down! In addition to playing the best CD's of the year, we enjoyed a lovely in-studio performance from Molly Dean:http://www.myspace.com/mollydean, previewing her performance at 7 pm tonight at E.P. Atelier:http://www.epatelier.com, as a part of our monthly Womenfolk concert series, celebrating E.P. Atelier's 5th Anniversary...E.P. Atelier is located at 609 S. 10th Street, in between Portland and Park, and there is parking right next to the shop. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for all the great calls and emails today and for making 2008 a great year for women in music...y'all are the best! Love 'n a happy new year, Ellen.
