Hope, passion, promise and commitment, with a dose of humor thrown in for good measure
Motherlode, a dynamic group of four women from Bellingham, Washington and Portland, Oregon, have been performing together for over 30 years. Motherlode has eight albums to their credit: Dance the Afternoon Away, Everything Possible, Heartline, Precious Stone, Circle on the Sand, Live and Laughing, Motherlode Memories and Coming Home.
The group has played to enthusiastic audiences from Vancouver, B.C. to Los Angeles, California, including venues such as the Seattle Folklife Festival, the McCall Music Festival (Idaho), the Corvallis Fall Festival, the Seattle Museum of History and Industry, Berkeley's Freight and Salvage, and colleges and universities throughout the northwest and California. They have shared stages with such nationally known artists as Ronnie Gilbert, Nina Gerber, Crystal Reeves, Theresa Trull, Judy Small, Linda Waterfall, Tom Paxton, and songwriter Betsy Rose, who describes Motherlode as "packing a lot of energy, humor and heart into their music."
The four artists write much of their own material, encompassing love songs, political satire, and songs addressing contemporary issues while emphasizing positive solutions. They are known for their warmth, spontaneity and rapport with their audiences, which invariably sing along at the invitation of the artists.
Nan, Kathleen, Marie and Janet play a wide variety of instruments including acoustic guitars, 'cello, bass, dobro, mandolin, harmonica, flute and a variety of percussion instruments.

Both Spring and Fall Camp 2020 have been Canceled As things continue to unfold around COVID-19, the coordinators of the Northwest Women’s Music Celebration have made the difficult decision to cancel our spring and fall 2020 camps in order to protect the health and safety of you, our campers, and our wonderful teaching staff.
We care about you and the wonderful community we have built through these gatherings, and we hope we can all gather together in person again soon. In the meantime, we hope we all avoid the virus and that we can use this time of extreme social distancing to learn or write some new songs, practice our instruments and to stay connected however we can.
