Woman's Suffrage Herstory Service with THE HERSTORIANS, singer-songwriters Sharleen Leahey & Pat Lamanna
Songs and Stories to celebrate the Centennial of Woman's Suffrage.
Accompanying themselves on guitar and banjo New York City natives Pat Lamanna and Sharleen Leahey sing classic, contemporary and original songs to celebrate the Centennial of Woman's Suffrage. Among the activists the two women folksingers honor in their show are legendary Abolitionists and Suffragists Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman. The show also includes contemporary compositions by singer-songwriters Ruth Pelham, Peggy Eyres and Bev Grant.
The Herstorians are also songwriters who often share their own compositions. During the Woman's Suffrage Service Sharleen will perform her original, "The Woman's Suffrage Song" which chronicles the 72-year long struggle waged by several generations of women activists including Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul.
