Gerri Gribi is a unique musician, historian and storyteller. Raised in the hills of Kentucky, she's toured North America for over 20 years, performing at colleges, coffeehouses, theaters, festivals...even military bases and prisons.
Accompanying her clear soprano voice with autoharp, mountain dulcimer and guitar, she uses traditional and original songs to express a world view that's lively, fun, and (gasp!) thought provoking.
A frequent guest on TV and radio, her original music has been heard in a variety of media outlets and projects, including ABC PrimeTime Live. She's released six recordings of traditional and contemporary folk music, and her latest CD, The Womansong Collection, has been enthusiastically reviewed both at home and abroad.
Her infamous "Hunting Song" (aka "Animals Love Vegetarians") airs on alternative stations around the world each fall.
She has degrees in History, Education and African American Studies. Her many awards include the 2004 Johnson Subvention Award from the Society for American Music, and the "Write Women Back Into History" Award from the National Women's History Project.
