Folk and indie music icon Cris Williamson participates in a panel discussion as part of a three-day residency at Berklee. The event also includes a screening of excerpts of Radical Harmonies, a documentary chronicling the women’s music movement of the early 1970’s, and a Q&A session with Williamson.The event takes place Wednesday, April 8, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. at The Loft, located at 939 Boylston St., Boston, MA. The event is open to the public free of charge. For more information, please visit berklee.edu/events or call 617-747-8820.The panel – moderated by Beth Denisch, associate professor of composition – will center on the emergence of women’s music, a movement that Williamson was instrumental in developing. In 1973, Williamson formed the first label dedicated to female artists, and released one of the best-selling independent albums of all time. In an era when women faced an uphill battle in the music industry, she helped set the stage for women, and lesbians in particular, to write, produce, record, and release their own material.
