MAW is rowdy string band made up of Lawrence, KS women who like to play and sing songs about murder, mules, mining, and morphine. MAW took the stage for the first time in late 2006 and have playing shows around the Midwest ever since. Set lists combine traditional and original songs that are sung and played crowded around a single condenser mic.
Our first CD, Advice for the Young and Foolish, was released in 2009 to enthuastic reviews locally as well as on Bluegrass Unlimited and in the Old Time Herald. Our second CD, Pit of Desire, was released in 2012, and our newest CD, Bought the Farm, was released in the fall of 2015. Our music has been played on radio stations around the U.S. and in Europe.
