Come celebrate July 4th with us!!
Western Female is a New York-based performance piece, led by front-woman and songwriter Melanie Beth Curran. Through channels of honky-tonk, rock n’ roll, old-time, early jazz, croon, poetry, and secular sermon, Western Female takes audiences on musical tours of Western spaces. By inhabiting a variety of musical genres, Western Female combines theatrical performance with sound to evoke inquiry into the role of women on stage, in song, and within the mythological framework of The West.
“… her work is new Hollywood cinema, Italian realism, and French new wave on a country record. She’s Vargas, Fellini, Lou Reed, Cindy Sherman, and Hank Williams all at once. In the future, genre, cynicism, strictures of the patriarchy, cannot hold down the Western Female.”
