Angie Lynch, Sasquatch Mountain

How would you describe your music?

Dark folk, traces of bluegrass, spoken word, hip-hop, and metal. It's hard to describe

What is your role in your band? In the studio? In business or marketing decisions?

I am one of 2 singer/songwriters in the band. We all set up shows when given the opportunity and we all promote the shows and music.

Describe your gear.

My band has a full sound-board and large amps. Our drumkit is homemade. My instrument is a banjitar(6 string banjo) which I play into a microphone.

Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

Yes. People act like theyve just witnessed a fish on a bicycle when they see that I can actually play guitar pretty well. A lot of guys have tried to get me into their band because they think it will be a positive marketing gimmick to have a "chick in the band"

Why did you choose to play the instrument you play?

I already play guitar, so it was an easy transition (the banjitar is tuned like a guitar). All my other musician friends played guitar so I thought I'd bring something unique to the table.
