Women In Music || Felton Music Review

March 8, 2021
Once you dive into the musical works of women, it’s pretty hard to stop. When you put all these ground-breaking women together from over the last century or so, you see the remarkable talent these ladies brought to all genres of music. Here are 85 tracks that represent a small taste of some of the female artists most inspiring to us, from those who’ve played the Felton Music Hall stage, to those we wish we would have gotten a chance to see perform at all. Songwriters, vocalists, performers. New, young, old. From early Rock and Jazz, to R&B and Country, Indie, Folk and Super Pop.
Who runs the world? Girls.
Happy International Women’s Day!
