Tret Fure (Special Event)

  • 05 May 2018
  • 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Church of the Ascension Parish Hall, Silver Spring, MD
Cosponsored by Church of the Ascension and FSGW: In a songwriting and performing career of 48 years and counting, Tret Fure has released 15 albums -- including three as a duo with Cris Williamson. She received the Jane Schliessman Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women's Music and was voted Pride In the Arts Favorite Female/Lesbian Musician in 2009. Her song Freedom hit #1 on the OutVoice.net music charts. She is also a president emeritus of Local 1000 of the American Federation of Musicians. To quote a review of her album Rembrandt Afternoons on Minor7th.com: "She's a singer-songwriter who draws you into her personal world without self-indulgence because her themes are universal and the songs, well-written. Tret's also a folk singer, touching on important issues like gender identity, and peace. … The first cut, Freedom, is a very singable anthem that's perfect for political gatherings or some churches -- anywhere where you need an uplifting and memorable song that's easy for everyone to join. Just try to get it out of your head. ? $15 donation suggested.
