Franklin Park hosts Gwyneth Fair, Teen Girl Musicfest

LMG Management and Loudoun County Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) are jointly sponsoring Gwyneth Fair…Lilith’s Little Sister, a day of music dedicated to teen and pre-teen girls and young women on July 27, 2002 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM at Franklin Park in Purcelliville, VA.  The musicfest is modeled after the very successful Liltih Fair organized by singer-songwriter Sarah Machlachan, except that all the performers will be teenaged girls.  The purpose of Gwyneth Fair is to: 

·        Provide an opportunity for teen female bands, vocal groups and singer-songwriters to perform at a public venue for their peers, friends and relatives

·        Exhibit and promote female self-confidence (girl power)

·        Strengthen the self-image of teen and pre-teen girls and young women throughout the Virginia, Maryland, and DC Metro areas  

Gwyneth Fair will feature original songs and dynamic musical performances by such teen female bands, vocal groups, and singer-songwriters as: 

Winners in the TEEN PEOPLE Magazine "Five Live Search" contest which was searching for the best teen bands in the country, the WWZZ Z104 "Local Band Challenge," the HOT 99.5 “Mark Anthony’s Big Break” talent contest, and who won silver and gold awards in the “hip-hop” and “pop” categories respectively in the 18th Annual Mid-Atlantic Song Contest sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Washington (SAW).  The groups lead singer was a winner in the WITH HOT 99.5 “Mark Anthony’s Big Break” talent contest in April.

A teen R&B vocal group who mix pop, hip-hop, and music.  They opened for B2K recently at the Lincoln Theatre and are under development by Xposure Entertainment which recently had another of their female vocal groups, Forbidden, signed to Atlantic Records.

 An all-teen-girl rock n’ roll band who won the Anne Arundel County "Battle of the Bands" contest against several all-guy bands.  They play their own instruments and write their own songs.  These girls rock! 

A singer-songwriter who fused folk and jazz, was nominated by the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) for one of their annual WAMMIE awards, and who has recorded a full-length CD of original songs entitled Creation.

A gifted teen singer who has performed for the Pope and sung at the White House.  She is now working on demo for several major record labels with producer, Ernesto Phillips who discovered Toni Braxton, the Braxton Sisters, and Kimberly Scott and secured major record label deals for them with Arista, Atlantic, and Columbia Records respectively. 

Gwyneth Fair will also feature Columbia, MD psychologist and social worker, Marjorie Schlesinger, who often speaks to teen girls on topics such as self-esteem, managing stress and resolving family problems.  She will deliver a positive message about the power of a positive self-image and positive self-esteem among teen girls.
