FEED: Frontier Feminists

April 7 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

- $65.00
 
Join us for a celebration of the Frontier Feminists who trailblazed a path to the farthest reaches of America from the Alaskan wilderness to the isolated Black Hills to the desolate plains of Arkansas. Travel with us for an evening of food, beer, song, and storytelling as we explore America through the eyes of female pioneers who first settled it. Words by Willa Cather, Calamity Jane and other Frontier Feminists are set to music by musical pioneers Libby Larsen, Judith Cloud, Barbara Harbach, and Lori Laitman. Add your experiences to a beautiful communal tapestry and share your stories over food by Eric from Easy Eats and delicious brews by Pete from middle brow beer.
 
Our performers for the evening include sopranos Ilana Goldstein, Onella Plyatilake and Harrah Friedlander, accompanied by pianist Sun Chang and clarinetist Sarah Crowell. Music compositions include selections from Barbara Harbach’s Pioneer Women: From Skagway to White Mountain; Libby Larsen’s A Working Woman from the letters of Calamity Jane and selections from My Antonia; Judith Cloud’s Flying Inside Your Own Head with text by Margaret Atwood; and Lori Laitman’s Blue Iris.
