Della Mae

Grammy-nominated, all-women string band Della Mae have traveled to over 30 countries so far, spreading peace and understanding through music. The band—founder and fiddle player Kimber Ludiker, lead vocalist/guitarist Celia Woodsmith, guitarist Avril Smith, bassist Vickie Vaughn, and mandolinist Maddie Witler—released its debut album, Headlight, in 2020, but the pandemic prevented their touring. However, they’ve continued to play and record together, releasing Family Reunion in August 2021. Their mission as a band is to showcase top female musicians, and to improve opportunities for women and girls through advocacy, mentorship, programming, and performance.
