2015 included Cris Williamson, Ubaka Hill, Kiya Heartwood, and the Traveling Fates among others including a debut from a fresh, young, all women's band based in Denton, TX and seasoned performers from Louisville, KY. There we were dancing wildly, singing along loudly with iconic women's music to music of anthemic change, meeting/connecting with friends - having a music festival! The official debut of Jori's one womon play, "Songs of My Soul" was well received and ready for the road! The dynamic and sultry blend of Traveling Fates made our jaws drop, and drumming with Ubaka - well, it doesn't get much better than that!
Thank you to ALL who attended! We're looking forward to continuing in the celebration of women's music and voices in 2016 and onward!
The all women crew of 2015:
"You ladies organized quite a production! Loved Wahru!"
"Just wanted to let you all know how much we enjoyed the Festival, and we will definitely be back next year. Keep up the awesome music, and let us know when you are in or near Texas in the coming year. We don't want to wait to see you again. Without a doubt we both had the time of our lives."
"Holly Near changed my life in 1974; I heard her in concert in D.C., when I was working for the federal govenment. I used to sit in front of my fireplace and listen to her songs about revolution, hers and Jimmy Cliff's. She inspired me to start listening to Democracynow! and to join a Marxist/Leninist study group, and a consciousness-raising group made up of all lesbians except for me. And eventually to give all that up, and hit the road, questioning everything. It was SO good to hear her again, and sure enough, she's still committed to social (and environmental, et al) justice. And Wahru was just fantastic, the real thing, such an honor to have her here. You are wonderful, thanks so much!"
"Your concert was Fantastic at the Festival. And so was everybody. In fact you were Amazonazing. Thank you for everything you do."
