In 2009, the Women of Folkways concert was originally conceived as a cornerstone of the Winter Roots Roundup, an Edmonton-based festival celebrating the best in folk, roots, and blues music. While the larger festival format is no more, the Women of Folkways concert itself has grown into a beloved annual tradition within the Edmonton community. The concert remains one of the showcase annual events presented by the Sound Studies Institute, produced alongslide with our partners at the Northern Lights Folk Club and curator/host Dana Wylie, and it represents a key outreach program with the wider community.
This year we’re digging a little deeper in the eclectic record catalogue that inspired it. Local luminaries Mallory Chipman, Audrey Ochoa, Shima Robinson (Dwennimmen), and host Dana Wylie will highlight some often overlooked corners of the Folkways Records collection, telling some of its lesser-known stories and featuring the work of women in jazz, spoken word, ethnomusicology, zoomusicology, and of course…there’ll be plenty of folk!
Capacity is limited and the show is a popular one, so get your tickets early!
