May is full of great opportunities to experience incredible musical performances by some truly badass women!
Start it off with Love is Blind: Music Inspired by Amy Winehouse on Saturday, May 14 at Wellfleet Preservation Hall. Emily Wade Adams, a Nauset High graduate now living in New York City, reprises her impressive show (picture a NYC jazz club) that wowed sell-out crowds last summer at the Cotuit Center for the Arts. Inspired by super talented singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse who died four years ago tragically under the age of 30, the show features a unique combination of the standards that inspired Winehouse, a selection of her own compositions, and songs of contemporary artists she influenced.
Next up: the 4th Cape Cod Women’s Music Festival on Saturday, May 21 at the Cape Playhouse in Dennis. Always a sell-out evening of outstanding performances, proceeds benefit Cape Wellness Collaborative (CWC), a local nonprofit that provides free-of-charge integrative and complementary therapies to people facing cancer in our community. This year’s lineup featuresThe Parkington Sisters, super trio Zoë Lewis, Erin McKeown and Natalia Zukerman, Clã de Bossa Nova, The Ticks, The Rip It Ups and Sarah Swain & The Oh Boys plus special guests and surprises!
