Girls Gone Mild

Area residents who attend episode No. 27 of “Rolling Hills Radio” will be treated to a rare performance by a group comprised of four local female musicians.

Girls Gone Mild, which is a project featuring: Mary Ramsey, vocalist and violinist of 10,000 Maniacs; Alison Pipitone, singer, songwriter and guitarist for the Alison Pipitone Band; Theresa Quinn, pianist and organist; and Susan Rozler, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist; is set to perform eight tunes during the Thursday, Nov. 21, recording of “Rolling Hills Radio.”

According to Ken Hardley, show host, this kind of show, which will feature for individually talented women, doesn’t happen very often.

“These are some very high profile musicians from our area,” Hardley said. “To actually have them working together is really something. Further than that, to bring them to our town to put on this kind of a show is really quite a privilege.”

The group brings a range of genres together to find a common sound in its original tunes, including influences such as: folk, rock, blues and jazz. But, Girls Gone Mild also covers deep album cuts from a number of the members’ favorite artists.

“They can play almost any genre, but they blend together very well,” Hardley said. “This will definitely be a very unique night of entertainment. I’m sure the people are going to be entertained from the time the tape begins rolling to the end of the show.”
