Women in Music, Gathering

Our next meeting will be held on Dec. 15th at Linda Mark's lovely Music Salon.

On the agenda, as always, is a great Q & A with members so that we can all learn more about the real struggles and victories our Women in Music are working through.

We always bring something wonderful to share buffet style.

And we will discuss pre-planning for our April 6th. Women in Music Gathering Benefit Concert for Buddy Dog Humane Society. (see show schedule for details)

Some of our members chose not to perform, which is great because every singer-songwriter adds value to our developing powerhouse association. Think of it as a sort of Rotary Club but only for Women in Music.

Then we end by each sharing a song.  There, now you know what one of our meetings is like! Want to join? Connect, with a message, on Colette's contact page and let's chat!

#WWMD, year 4 and a new album from Colette happening on June 21st!

REVIEWS

Colette O’Connor’s album – I Think I Am – Voted in the top 15 CD's of the Year 2016. Nominated CD of the Year, Pulse Magazine and Worcester Music Awards.

Colette is a visionary who sings because she must and because she does, all who hear her are filled with light and wonder. - Debra Andersen, Radio Programmer/Host "The Wimmin's Show" KZUM 89.3 FM-HD, Lincoln NE.

On "Ground to Dust" THIS is a real thinking persons song. There is deep, deep meaning here. Almost like an Al Stewart song: just when you think you've found the center, there lies yet another layer. - Daniel Stratton,  The Wanderer, Independent Radio Host

I Think I AM is an exemplar of what good acoustic music should be in this time of same-sounding pop hits. Her original songs—from the pragmatically philosophic title track to the delightful story of the “People on the Porch”—resonate with both joy and insight, and deliver a pleasing vocal style combined with some outstanding musicianship. There are sixteen tracks in all, and every one is fashioned with both warmth and wit, evoking the poetic spirit of this talented artist. Songs like “Penny in the Pond,” “Been There Done That,” “Hide and Seek,” “Huckleberry Finn,” and the rest are worth listening to again and again. As a songwriter, O’Connor deftly crafts words, matches them with original melodies, and then infuses them with her own personality, creating something very special. -Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL on NPR station, WICN (Worcester Public Radio).
