Sunland #3: The Ladies!

September 3, 2014 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join Holland and Sundance Books for the third installment of our beloved Sunland Symposium Series. The topic: THE LADIES.  Taking place on Wednesday, Sept. 3 at 6pm, this event is a discussion-based event meant as the salons of yore–to engage and inspire.  Our guests are LEGENDARY rock critic and writer, Sylvie Simmons, and the amazing and talented Aja Pecknold, founder of Unified Field Collective & manager of the Fleet Foxes. 

A look at women in music, but not the obvious choices. We want to explore some unsung heroines, killer ladies, and musical legends—women who changed everything—but largely remain in the shadows, or veiled in mystery, or simply haven’t received their due. We’d like to delve into the stories about strong women behind the scenes (as songwriters, inventors, producers, business heads); ladies just out of the spotlight (as musicians, back-up singers, opening acts); women that should have been stars or household names, but weren’t; trailblazing ladies and women who did it first (paving the path not just for other women, but igniting change or a lasting impact on music in general); and interesting female figures throughout music history.  We’d like to stay away from the big girl bands and amazing front women we know and love, to find and discuss—and bring into the spotlight—some women worth talking about.
