An ode to Idaho's women of song

by

March is Women's History Month and Tuesday, March 8 is International Women's Day. As such, The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) has devoted its First Thursday to the ladies.

The Women's History Month Music Celebration Live gets under way at 6 p.m. with performances from some of Boise's most well-known musical artists, including Eilen Jewell, Rebecca Scott, Sun Blood Stories and aka Belle.

"There are a tremendous number of talented women in the Treasure Valley. Some are well known, some are not. Some have been around for a few years, while others have been around for a few decades. We wanted to showcase a cross-section of that talent," said the Record Exchange's Chad Dryden.

Each of the dozen acts will perform one original song and one cover song from an influential female artist. Misty Taylor from 94.9 FM The River will emcee the event, which also includes food from The Funky Taco and an opportunity to donate to the Women's and Children's Alliance.
