International Women's Day
O'Shea's Pub, Dennis, MA.- March 4th was a great day for the ACLU! Kathleen Healy, who has been organizing and hosting this annual event for several years, always invites a power-house of professional women singer-songwriters to each perform a set of original music.
This year the pub was full to bursting and, during her set, Colette challenged the songwriters in the audience to a songwriter's challenge for next year. The theme she suggested was "put a bit in the bucket" as Kathleen has a bucket for donations and keeping that donation bucket in focus, in a fun way, is a great thing for every songwriter to sing about!
Colette's set included "People On The Porch" as it's one of Kathleen's favorites. There is always someone in the audience with a manikin story to share and this time a woman shared an amazing manikin mystery and brought photos to illustrate!
Always a fantastic event. Hope to see you all again next year. Great thanks to all who attended!

Hollywood Digest featured a heartwarming write up about Women In Music Gathering's (WIMG) upcoming fundraiser for Buddy Dog! Colette O'Connor and Linda Marks co-founded Women In Music Gathering, a growing coalition of Massachusetts-based independent singer-songwriters who are vested professionals of their craft.
