Named after Dawson City's red light district, Sisters of White Chapel is a songwriting project inspired by the narratives of women during the Klondike Gold Rush. 

Led by Juneau guitarist Annie Bartholomew, Sisters of White Chapel seeks to bring to light the lesser known histories of women in the Yukon and Alaska. From the spinsters to dance hall queens, these songs celebrate the struggle and sacrifice made by those who risked safety and virtue for a chance of a better life.

Alaskan songwriter Annie Bartholomew performs the title track from the Sisters of White Chapel songwriting project. Filmed in a crib of Skagway's historic brothel museum in Red Onion Saloon, this song is inspired by an account from the Klondike Nugget of 18-year-old Milley Lane from Seattle whose provisions were lost at Thirty Mile.
