Women musicians celebrated in Iowa City

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

A unique Iowa City festival is celebrating the musical talent of women. Upper City Park in Iowa City played host to the 18th Annual Iowa Women's Music Festival. The free admission stage featured a diverse group of performers of different types of music. Organizers say the goal is to provide professional performing opportunities for women. "Eighteen years ago I think there were less opportunities for women musicians than now, but still if you look around at other local festivals you don't see a lot of women on stage," said organizer Laurie Haag.

The event is put on by Prairie Voices Productions, a non-profit organization created for the festival.
