Linda will join friends and colleagues from afar to celebrate June Millington, co-founder of Fanny, on February 21st for an extraordinary afternoon of performances as we celebrate her remarkable life as a Filipina immigrant, rock ‘n roll pioneer, catalyst in the women’s music movement, impassioned educator and godmother to the next generation of women in the music business.
Beginning with her childhood in Manila, the retrospective weaves narrative, video, photos and performances into a rich musical tapestry that will take you on a journey through June’s life, culminating in a rare performance by members of Fanny. The evening will conclude with a tribute by students and alumni from the Institute for the Musical Arts (IMA), a non profit teaching organization co-founded by June and her partner, Ann Hackler.

In conjunction with the performance, an interactive pop-up exhibition is being held from February 12th through 28th, in downtown Northampton. The exhibition takes visitors on a walk through June’s life with immersive photographs, letters, concert posters, albums, and instruments as well as interactive video and audio installations.
