At Guitar Mama Showcase, women rendezvous every month to share a glimpse of their own music making lives. It’s a time for laughter, encouragement, silliness, camaraderie and stillness. Sometimes all these things are experienced through an offering from a single contributor. Currently there are several chapters in Canmore, Alberta, including a group specifically for less experienced players. We have plans for expansion, too, as soon as COVID restrictions on musical gatherings ease up.
Guitar Mama Showcase
Women of all levels of experience – or inexperience – are welcome. Each gathering follows a show-and-tell model and whatever each person has to offer on any given night is celebrated. There is no apology, only encouragement and progress at individual paces. Life happens – let’s share our soundtracks.
At Guitar Mama Showcase I’ve found freedom to be more of myself surrounded by women who meet each other exactly where you are. Words can’t describe the impact the Guitar Mama community has had on my life. So grateful and full. The voices, the music, the acceptance, the love, (the wine) – I have found my Tribe.
