The Interviews

DinnerOver the period of several months Gretta and Sarah held a number of dinner parties, cocktail parties and one-on-one interviews with close to forty women (and a couple of men) that were part of the music scene during this era.  The tales always started of light, and then dove into memories that many of the women shared…  The challenges they face as their tight-knit community unexpectedly exploded and their city becomes an international rock Mecca. The obnoxious attitudes of some who couldn’t imagine women that could rock. Tales of days on end in a van touring.  The collaboration and support the artist of the time experienced. And the inspirations they garnered from each others passion and talent.

These Streets would not have been possible without the generosity of the women and men willing to share their stories and memories. We’d like to acknowledge them and give our heartfelt thanks:
