“Nancy Scharlau is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Her passion for recording live music eventually led her to relocate to San Francisco where she worked as a staff assistant / engineer for six years at Different Fur Recording. While in the Bay Area, Nancy had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of artists including, George Winston, Primus, Faith No More, Bobby McFerrin, Thomas Dolby and Henry Butler. She is also the owner and operator of Joey Mobile Recording.”
Flora Layla Edwards is the producer of “The Sacred Music of the Mayan” which is part of the Smithsonian Folkways Collection in New York City. She will be sharing this experience with us, as well as her time involved with a studio which saw the likes of Bob Dylan and Harry Belafonte roll through.
“Flora ‘Layla’ Edwards is a dynamic, multi-talented visionary artist who has forged a successful career working in a diverse group of mediums. She is a painter, sculptor, printmaker, weaver and published poet. She has also produced documentary films, television shows and recordings. She maintains her art studio in Tucson, Arizona.”
Alice du Buhr, drummer of Fanny, (the first all-women band to be signed to a major label), will be talking about her experience with this band, showcasing exclusive footage and merch.
Fanny was an American rock band, active in the early 1970s. They were one of the first all-female rock groups to achieve critical and commercial success, including two Billboard Hot 100 top 40 singles. The group has continued to attract critical acclaim for rejecting typical girl group styles and expectations of women in the rock industry generally, and emphasizing their musical skills. Later groups, such as The Bangles and The Runaways, cited Fanny as a key influence.
“They were extraordinary: they wrote everything, they played like motherfuckers, they were just colossal and wonderful, and nobody’s ever mentioned them.” — David Bowie (talking about Fanny)
