After a successful launching in July with close to 100 people in attendance, the TreeCat Café opens up its doors to June Millington, a Filipina-American guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer, and educator who is best known as co-founder and lead guitarist of the all-female rock band Fanny. Millington is also the co-founder and artistic director of the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA) in Goshen, MA, a nonprofit teaching, performing, and recording studio that supports women and girls in music and the music industry.
Fanny was the first all-female rock band to be signed with and to record a full album with a major label. They eventually released five albums and achieved two Billboard top 40 singles in the early 1970’s. Members of the band are considered pioneers of women’s rock who forged the way for other all-women rock groups like The Go-Go’s, The Runaways, and The Bangles who came after. Fanny fan, David Bowie referred to Fanny as "extraordinary... they're as important as anybody else who's ever been, ever."
Stephanny Marryshow, singer songwriter, Institute of Musical Arts alum, and Treehouse Community resident, will open the evening with a few of her original songs.
Admission is a suggested donation of $20 for general public and $5 for Treehouse community members. Donations will help to fund and sustain the TreeCat Café and other youth programs at Treehouse. Food will be served. Seating is limited and RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED!
TreeCat Cafe is located at the Treehouse Community Center, Easthampton Meadows, 1 Treehouse Circle, Easthampton, MA. Contact Jennifer Matias at 857- 919-4045 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
