To Encourage, Develop, and Support Women in the Creation of Music.
Founded in Edmonton on April 2014, by Sinder Sparks (Csparksfly Productions)
The creation of music enriches community connectivity and is therapeutic for both the mind and body. Female musicians of all levels of expertise experience a variety obstacles that deter musical paths, decreases quality of life and prevents too much music from being created. Musical Mamas Society was founded to provide a grass roots gateway for all musical people identifying as women of all ages, styles, and levels of skill to have safe, supported opportunities and secure space to create, record, perform and advance their individual musical journeys, fortified with positive peer support and self-led learning.
Our first Society Board was finalized on November 28th of 2016. Musical Mamas Society produces an annual compilation CD and provides free Singer Song Writer Support Group Meetings from September to May with a break in December. The meetings are on the last Tuesday of each month and are available to all musical women on a drop in bases. We continue to develop and create events and opportunities for Female Musicians in our community and in yours! Start your Musical Mama B.E.A.T. (Bring Everyone All Together)
Musical Mamas Society has grown significantly since the first gathering in April 2014! We have produced 32 singer songwriter support group meetings, established sponsored meeting space at the Boyle Street Plaza (ECLF), grown to 48 members, and provided 12 stage opportunities to perform publicly (including the two day Musical Mamas Showcase featured at Sasquatch Gathering 2017), and established an Annual CD Compilation Project. Musical Mamas launched Volume 1 in November 2017, with Volume 2 set to launch in March 2018!
