FemFest Presents

Riverwest FemFest is an annual music and arts festival celebrating the powerful and positive impact women, femmes, and feminine identifying groups can have on each other and the community around them. Founded in 2015, we celebrate the empowerment that comes with surrounding yourself with people who push you to push yourself. We celebrate through music, art, and poetry. We not only celebrate the feminine impact within our own community, we celebrate women, femmes, and feminine identifying groups, (and those who support) everywhere.

SistaStrings sisters Monique and Chauntee perform classical music and improv on popular hymns. They are both classically trained musicians having studied at the String Academy of Wisconsin and the Music Institute of Chicago. Both are pursuing higher education in music performance. Although they are classically trained and are passionate lovers of the classical music genre, their first love is gospel music. Their sound is soulful and fresh, a very unique blend of their eclectic musical background. Individually,

LASKA based out of Eau Claire, WI and Minneapolis, MN provide the perfect soundtrack for embracing the beauty in pain. Songwriting sisters Hannah, Becca and Mookie weave influences of Alternative, Americana and Desert Rock with raw emotion in their songs. They are all confident vocalists knowing what each will bring to the table to sing lead, but also support one another with beautifully hard-hitting harmonies. Topping off the harmonic sheen is an instrumental arsenal including violin, guitar, banjo, mandolin and ukulele. Combine this with an un- apologetic rhythm section in tow and the whole of this band is far greater than the sum of its parts.
