Second annual showcase at The Burren by singer/songwriters and performing musicians of the artist-alliance group, The Women In Music Gathering (WIMG)
The Women In Music Gathering #WIMG is an artist-alliance of women in music: singer/songwriters and performing musicians, with the primary goals of collaboration and support, extending to both personal and professional aspects of being a woman in music.
Co-founded by Linda Marks and Colette O’Connor, this working collaboration of local, inter/national, and up and coming independent performers is fast becoming a fundraising powerhouse of professionals who share a stage.
WIMG is a multi-generational/lingual/talented group of music artists who identify as women and are living what they preach: "Never give up your voice!"
