Join folksingers Pat Lamanna, Lydia Adams Davis and Sharleen Leahey as we celebrate women's 72-year struggle for suffrage from the 1840s to the present. As The Herstorians, the trio travelled the northeast performing songs and telling stories to reveal our long-buried herstory with drama, humor and passion. In addition to historical songs, each artist, an accomplished songwriter and recording artist, will share original tunes which will send you home uplifted and inspired.

Pat Lamanna is an award-winning folksinger-songwriter living in the Hudson River Valley. With a particular interest in historical songs and stories, she has given musical presentations on women's suffrage, Catskill Mountain lore, civil rights, peace, and legendary folksingers such as Woody Guthrie, Malvina Reynolds, and Pete Seeger.

Lydia Adams Davis is a veteran of the New York folk music scene. A relaxed and warm-voiced balladeer, Lydia brings an improvisational flair to her original and traditional songs. Called "a splendid performer" by the New York Times, she has shared stages with legends such as Pete Seeger and Dar Williams.

Sharleen Leahey is a singer-songwriter, recording artist and peace activist. She has recorded three collections of original songs including her most recent release, For the 99. Sharleen performs a unique blend of original and classic folksongs for diverse audiences which include peace and environmental groups, festivals and community coffeehouses.

Tonight's concert is co-sponsored by The Folk Music Society of New York.
