Lady-led Ladyfest lays on the jams


The third annual Ladyfest rocked and rolled all night along a closed-off Circuit Avenue in Oak Bluffs.

The evening’s lineup ran the talent gamut with acts from near and far, like Lucy Mayhew, Sol y Canto, Rose Guerin, Bombshell featuring Baby Girl and Lady Slim, Missis Biskis, Kate Taylor, Jemima James, Jodie Treloar Sampson, Alisa Amador, the Outskirts, Barbara Dacey, Sabrina & the Groovers, Auntie Em & the Bedspins, the Jaywalkers, Jhon Lucas & Carol, and DJs Lili and AP.

The yearly concert was co-founded in 2017 by Rose Guerin and Kelly Feirtag, with assistance from the Ritz’s owner, Larkin Stallings. The organizers partnered with Connect to End Violence, a program of M.V. Community Services (MVCS), to raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse in the community.
