“If Melissa Etheridge had a hippie big sister who hangs out with Lucinda Williams, that would be Beth Elliott.” Still on the flower power/Goddess counterculture fringe of the women’s community after decades of making music and many publication credits, this Renaissance woman’s original songs are full of wit and humor that shine through even the darkest lyrics. She has one self-produced “checkered career retrospective” CD, “Buried Treasure.” Her work has been included in Linda Zeiser and Trena Machado’s “What I Want From You: Voices of East Bay Lesbian Poets,” and in Lynx Canon’s anthology “Dirty Old Women: Erotica by Women of Experience.” Come hear a true (and very entertaining) original at Works In Progress.
Other wonderful artists will thrill and delight you!!
Works In Progress is a creative space for women’s art: Poets, Musicians, Comediennes, and Performance Artists. All are encouraged to share their works, completed or evolving.
