We have plenty more exciting artists yet to announce, but the following performers are CONFIRMED for SisterSpace Weekend 2017! Watch this spot (or follow us on Facebook) to be the first to know about additional artists as they join us.
Heather Mae was once just a folk songwriter with a ukulele but after recovering from vocal nodules – which left her unable to sing for two years – she is stretching the limits of her music and her voice. Her newest EP, titled “I AM ENOUGH”, is a collection of five anthemic songs that encourage the listener to search for the best version of themselves while also shaking their hips to a new wave of pop – think Tegan & Sara, meets Sara Bareilles, with the vocal tenacity of Etta James. Each song is lyrically anthemic and features Heather Mae's brassy voice a la Etta James. Noted as an “empowering artist” by FLURT Magazine and “charming” by The Washington Post, Heather Mae is using her music to shed light on issues that are close to her heart such as body positivity, mental health, LGBTQ rights, and redefining what it means to be “good enough”. Mae has performed at many distinguished folks festivals including Kerrville Folks Festival and Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Her latest video, “Stand Up”, can be seen here.
FIERCE is a five piece, all-girl band based out of Lancaster, PA. Their music consists of classic rock and blues to modern rock, pop and dance hits with some originals thrown in to showcase their writing talent. The group has been in existence since November 2011. While some of the members have changed over the years, the group’s intensity remains strong. The current line-up features former members of the bands Dirty Girls, Sisterbeat and Deja Vudoo.
It's not too early to submit your workshop ideas for the 2017 Weekend. Workshops at SisterSpace are collaboratively built by the people attending the Weekend. Our goal is to put together a schedule of workshops that are as interesting and diverse as the many women who attend. In the past, SisterSpace has offered workshops focusing on sexuality, feminism, relationships, body painting, self-improvement, financial planning, car maintenance, salsa dancing, and more! Find out more about how you can volunteer as a workshop presenter.
