The four women of Motherlode - Janet Peterson, Nan Collie, Marie Eaton and Kathleen Fallon - met in 1980 at the Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and have been making music together ever since. They perform original songs based on their life experiences of relationships, motherhood, political activism, hope, loss and change.
They'll play at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at Fairhaven College Auditorium on Western Washington University's campus, in a concert to benefit a scholarship named for Eaton's father, Conant (Connie) Dodge, who was the first in his family to complete a four-year college degree. The scholarships in his name help students at Western Washington University's Fairhaven College who are the first generation in their families to go to college.
