An Evening with Ferron
Ferron is a Canadian-born singer-songwriter and poet.  In addition to gaining fame as one of Canadas most respected songwriters, Ferron first became one of the most influential lyrical songwriters of the womens music circuit, and an important influence on later musicians including Ani Di Franco, Mary Gauthier and the Indigo Girls.  From the mid-80s on, her songwriting talents have been recognized and appreciated by music critics and broader audiences, with comparisons being made to the writing talents of Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, and Leonard Cohen.

Ferron and Gayle Scott collaborated on her next two studio albums: Testimony (Lucy Records, 1980) and Shadows on a Dime (Lucy Records, 1984), which received a four-star rating from Rolling Stone magazine. She went on to release six more albums (Phantom Center, Resting with the Question, Driver, Not a Still Life, Still Riot and Impressionistic) before Turning into Beautiful, her next album of original material, in 2005 on her own label. That was followed by Girl on a Road Documentary and Live Show, then Boulder, a collection of re-recordings produced by Bitch on Short Story Records, in 2008.  The Ferron CD, Lighten-ing, was released in 2013, also produced by Bitch, with the film Thunder  packaged as a two-disc set.  

With arthritis affecting her hands and her ability to play the guitar, Ferron began performing with support musicians for special events only including Olivia Cruises, the 40th Michigan Womyns Music Festival, and the Ohio Lesbian Festival.  In 2017, Ferron and Aint Life a Brook were featured on an episode of Tig Notaros TV show  One Mississippi.  After an overwhelmingly successfully sold out show with her All Star Band at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley (Feb. 2017) Ferron was rediscovered.
