Wonder Women at One-2-One is a monthly music series that happens (usually) the last Sunday afternoon of every month and features some of the Austin music communities’ finest female performers. It is a seated matinee show and will be emcee’d by Austin’s beloved songbird, Barbara Nesbitt. Barbara will also be doing short, intimate and fun interviews with our performers before their set at each show.
MORE ABOUT WONDER WOMEN AT ONE-2-ONE (by Art Gressel):
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Austin musicians volunteered en masse to donate their talents to raise funds for relief efforts.
I happened to attend one such concert at Antone’s in September, 2017. It was there that I witnessed something I thought remarkable at the time, but I came to recognize as commonplace…one of Austin’s musical doyennes, Wendy Colonna, working her way from the back of the room with her newborn son. Without breaking stride, Wendy handed young Charlie off to her husband as he simultaneously held out her guitar. It had the precision of a relay. Wendy hopped up on the stage, and Charlie was hustled off to the “green” room.
My first thought was how this new family handled it so gracefully. My second thought was that Austin’s female musicians have it harder than their male counterparts. I suddenly realized,” Of course they do!! Why should the music business be any different from the rest of society??”
That led to the idea of a series featuring Austin’s leading ladies of music, which we are calling “WONDER WOMEN AT ONE-2-ONE”.
