The Fabulous Dirt Sisters (1981-1989) were an all women band based in Nottingham, UK. They began in 1981 when Dorry Lake and Deb Mawby came together through a shared interest in street musicianship, feminist/peace politics and using music as a platform for inspiring joy in people.
The band underwent various line up changes in their early life until they were joined by Stella Patella in 1982 on the fiddle. She would stay with the band until they split up in 1989. In 1984 Kaffe Matthews joined as an inexperienced bass player and a more solid line up took shape. As Matthews became more interested in playing percussion they were joined by Jane Griffiths on double bass in 1987.
