Festival celebrates women in music

We may be more than halfway through March, but there is still time to celebrate Women’s History Month. One festival is celebrating women in music.

Welcome to GRIP Fest 2019.

“Growing up, I would only hear about Beethoven and Bach, and you always see male performers are the most famous and you don’t always get to highlight just female composers or female artists,” says Teresa Hargrove, GRIP Fest Performer.

Around ten years ago, Jazmine Shultz wanted to change that narrative and showcase a more diverse cast of performers.

“We can play music, and we should play music, and your little girls should play loud rock-and-roll music because it makes you feel powerful and like you can accomplish a lot,” says Jazmine Schultz, Co-founder of GRIP

She started the Gurlz RIP Fest to share her passion for music and celebrate women.

“The atmosphere is a really supportive atmosphere and I just really appreciate and enjoy the audiences that come to this,” says Schultz.

This year, almost 20 bands and performers of different genres of music will be taking the stage to share their talents.

“It kind of brings in a crowd that’s a little bit different than what some of our music events bring in. So, we have your moms and dads and your supportive grandmas and your aunties,” says Schultz.

All to share one message:

“Girls. Can. Do. It. That’s what I think,” says Shultz.

“You can do it when you’re a teenager in high school and you can do it when you’re in your 70s and that’s -I think- really special,” says Hargrove.

Music is for everyone.

GRIP Fest performers will be playing well into Saturday night in Downtown Minot at 62 Doors.
