Concerned that women musicians are often overlooked in the male-dominated music industry, Casco Bay High School senior Annie Dodson has orchestrated a benefit concert to promote gender equality in the Portland music community.

“Girls to the Front,” featuring only female and non-binary musicians, will take place on Friday, Feb. 1, at Mayo Street Arts, located at 10 Mayo Street in Portland. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the music begins at 7:30 p.m. All genders welcome!

Musicians will include Suzanna Sylvain, Simi Kunin & Sascha Drice, The Asthmatic, Sophia Sturtevant, Emma Ivy, August West, and Sara Hallie Richardson with the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra quartet.

Suggested donation is $5-$20. Proceeds will go to benefit Women in Music, an organization working towards educating the public about gender discrimination in music.

The event is the culmination of Annie’s senior learning expedition. She encourages the Portland Community to “come on out to hear stories and music from talented local performers impacted by misogyny!”
