Calliope Fest IV
The three-day Calliope Fest may bill itself as "An Open Celebration of Women in Music," but it also includes the added lure of an art auction, a day-long Young Musician Showcase, and proceeds benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of America and MPower, the latter a national awareness initiative focusing on youth mental-health issues. Headliners include the outspoken, always intriguing Melissa Ferrick; the edgy experimental trio Rasputina; South Florida favorite Diane Ward; and an array of performers who run the gamut from punk to poetry, funk to folk, and avant-garde to eclectic instrumentalists. Considering it's in its fourth year and bigger than before, this South Florida fest apparently enjoys the blessings of its own lady luck.
