Women for Water: An Anti-Fracking Benefit concert set for November 3

October 26, 2012

Join us for an evening in recognition and celebration of the transcendent connection between women and water. This event will benefit Michigan Land Air Water Defense (MiLAWD), a grassroots group dedicated to protecting our public lands from industrialization by oil and gas companies and, specifically, high-volume hydraulic “fracking”. MiLAWD’s mission is to educate the public about fracking and its many risks, and to use the courts to halt the allowance of fracking and related activities on public lands in Michigan.

The lineup of female artists includes:

Dede Alderman, a versatile performer who wears many hats. Her gypsy style on the vibraphone is enchanting and her vocal style mixes sweet Irish influence with growling soul-felt jazz sensibilities, a unique combo you can only experience for yourself.

Jen Sygit‘s rapidly growing repertoire of original songs has surpassed many with its sophisticated lyrics and intense emotion. This Interlochen Alumus, while composing songs primarily on guitar, also plays old-time clawhammer banjo as well as the dobro.

Ferron is one of Canada’s most famous folk musicians, as well as one of the most influential icons of women’s music worldwide. For a generation she has been a revered poet, a leader, a survivor, and an artist of great depth. She is simply on of folk music’s greatest songwriters and performers of recent times.

Sairuhnade is a passionate local activist, who has bore witness the impact of fracking on Michigan’s ecosystems. She will share her experiences through heart-felt songs, which she has uniquely created and soulfully performs.
