Women Making Music is a series of 2-3 minute modules in which contemporary singer-songwriters offer first person accounts of their craft.

Women Making Music is a series of short (two to three minute) first person accounts of artists talking about their lives and their craft. From WXPN--one of public radio's leading Tripple A stations--Women Making Music encompasses some of today's most important established singer-songwriters (Like Lucinda Williams and Suzanne Vega) as well as performers whose names you may not recognize. They hail from a variety of genres from Alternative Country to the Blues.

We will supply ten modules.
