Women in Music: Strings Attached

Women in Music: Strings Attached

"Recommended. A reflective documentary about the inspiration and vision of five accomplished women musicians/guitarists trying to make it in today's male-dominated music industry." -EMRO Review
You may take music lessons, you may practice on an instrument for years, but there's one thing many musicians never learn in class, which is how to make a living doing something you love, playing music, once you're beyond school and practice. This program offers musicians an idea of what to expect, especially if you're a female performer; it profiles five women, Terri Winston (Warmer in California), Karen Almquist (If Your Soul Gets Lonesome), Jackeline Rago (Quirpa), Lynn Vidal (Banish Misfortune and Hesitation Blues), and Carrie Baum (Break This Heart), who describe their backgrounds, what influenced them and their music, and their struggles in attempting to make a living in the music industry. Respectively, their types of music are: "alternative"; "slide blues"; "Latin jazz/traditional"; "Celtic/blues"; "rock." Produced by Marla Leech. 05/09DE JSCA 20 min.
