We empower local female musicians to share their voices; open to all ages, instruments, voices, genres and skill levels…no member fees. It’s just a way to step out from behind the guys to work on your music with the support of other women.


We collaborate, jam, network and explore what’s going on in the KC music scene. We have a monthly guitar circle at a centrally located brewery. We’ve done open mics, radio appearances, karaoke, house jams, clinics, forums and field trips. Our meetups improve all skill levels; individually and in groups to play out…but performances are always optional : )


The more people you meet, the more doors will open for you. If you want to play out, write or record – you can find like minded female musicians here. We meet on a regular basis so join us next time for the fun, fans and friends!

Phil Duncan has been playing harmonica since the age of 7. Following his college education and service during the Vietnam war, he returned to civilian life and began to develop teaching procedures and methods through adult community education.  Ten years later, his first harmonica book was published by Mel Bay Publications. Phil has been teaching harmonica for 50 plus years, in elementary schools, high schools, colleges, and community adult courses. He has authored 35 books, 5 videos, and a chart outlining the care, maintenance, and repair of the harmonica for Mel Bay Publications. He has written on virtually every aspect of playing the harmonica, making a significant contribution to the understanding and repertoire for this instrument.
