Join us on Saturday, March 5, at 2 pm with local singer-songwriter Calla Sun. Her concert will celebrate Women's History Month referencing American folk tradition and blending in harmonic poetry and personal storytelling. This program will also feature songs by women songwriters ranging from Billy Holiday to Dolly Parton, as well as a selection of her own original music.
Sun also states, “Songwriting is such an empowering tool for self-expression because it channels the writer’s personal experiences into something universally relatable. For me, composing lyrics is how I process my experiences, make sense of patterns and symbols that I see, and give words to ideas that are too challenging to speak and therefore must be sung. Music is one of the few areas of our society where a woman’s emotional depth is celebrated, rather than derided. Songwriting is a way for women to challenge the patriarchal systems that belittle the value of emotional literacy, making it a radical act of protest and social change.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Calla Sun is a singer/songwriter based in the Upper Delaware-Catskills region. Her sound takes inspiration from the American folk tradition, a blend of harmonic poetry and personal storytelling. Her program for the DVAA’s Salon Series celebrates Women’s History Month with a slate of songs written by great women songwriters, from Billie Holiday to Dolly Parton. While she is not so presumptuous as to include herself in that category, Calla Sun will also play a selection of her own original music, inspired heavily by the works of the female musicians who have come before her.
