Nashville’s all-female singer-songwriter collective, Song Suffragettes, are celebrating four years. The weekly sold-out singer-songwriter round is hosting a fourth-anniversary party on June 11 at Analog at Hutton Hotel.
”We started Song Suffragettes in 2014 simply to give underserved female singer-songwriters a place to play their music and hone their craft,” says music industry veteran Todd Cassetty. “To watch Song Suffragettes evolve from simply a talent showcase to a proud community of talented women has been highly rewarding. And on June 11, we’re excited to once again celebrate the diversity of female voices that we will continue to support until there’s more gender parity within the Nashville music community.”
The anniversary party will include two performance rounds by some of Nashville’s best female singer-songwriters. They’ll also have a “State of Women in Country Music” panel with CMT’s Leslie Fram, Red Light’s Tracy Gershon and MTSU’s Beverly Keel. Rolling Stone/Billboard‘s Marissa Moss will moderate.
Since Song Suffragettes first debuted four years ago, they’ve become a staple at the Listening Room. They’re the venue’s largest weekly sold-out show. Although it’s best seen live, fans from out of state can catch it live on Periscope each week.
Catch the Song Suffragettes on June 11 at 6:30 PM at Analog at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville. Tickets for the event can be purchased here and are only $10. Stay up-to-date with everything from the Song Suffragettes by visiting their official website.
