Musicians Gather for First Annual Women’s Music Summit
Meshell Ndegeocello, Marnie Stern, Melissa Auf der Maur, and Malina Moye attend as featured artist instructors
September 11,2012, Lafayette, CA — Female musicians and songwriters of all ages and skill levels gathered last month in Big Indian, NY for the first ever Women’s Music Summit.
Tucked away in the Catskill Mountains at Full Moon Resort, festivities began over cocktails and an open mic session as the ladies shared the spotlight and instantly connected over music and conversation. With the ice now broken, attendees woke up the next morning to breakfast followed by a songwriting and collaboration workshop led by guitarist Malina Moye and event founder Laura Whitmore. Breaking off into smaller groups, they were offered a challenge: to write and complete a song together before the Summit reaches an end. The first Women’s Music Summit was in full swing.
