“Singing for Suffrage”
with Peggy Lynn & Dan Duggan


Concert at 144 Cedar Street, Corning

In the red-brick UM Church--door on First St.

Peggy Lynn is passionate about the contributions and burdens of women. While earning a BS in Women’s Studies and a Master’s degree in American and Women’s History, she uncovered 200 songs used by, or popular during, the struggles of the women’s suffrage movement. Peggy Lynn will perform a selection of these songs, accompanied by husband Dan Duggan in this special program on the weekend after International Women’s Day, commemorating the 100th anniversary of women gaining the vote. Sponsored by the Southeast Steuben County Library. More info...
