Women's music has always been a fierce rallying point at Bryn Mawr. From campus songwriters to famous queer musicians, concerts were a large part of feminist and lesbian identities and communities from the 1970s through the 1990s.

Many of the alumnae/i whom I spoke to remembered a campus feminist, lesbian songwriter Joanna Ho. Her music made a lasting impression on alumnae/i from outside of her occupancy on campus, largely due to her performance at the Soiree Sauvage.

One of the events during Gay Awareness Week 1988 was a performance by Holly Near.

Students often traveled into Philadelphia to see Dar Williams and others perform.

Listen to Denise Kulp, Class of 1980, discuss her personal connection to performers and the experience of finding musical accompaniment for the second Seven Sisters Ivy League Lesbian Conference.
