Vicki F Among Those Planning To Perform At Pride Women's Music Festival
DANBURY — Victoria Ferrara, a leading reproductive lawyer in Connecticut, who heads up Worldwide Surrogacy in Fairfield, will take the stage as her musical persona, Vicki F, at the upcoming Fairfield County “Pride Women’s Music Festival” this weekend.
The festival is planned for Sunday, June 20, at Tarrywile Park, 70 Southern Boulevard in Danbury.
From noon to 7 pm The Triangle Community Center, Fairfield County's leading provider of programming and resources to nurture growth and connection within the LGBTQ community, will present Pride Women’s Musical Festival, a family-friendly, LGBTQ Pride music festival that will host local lesbian singer/songwriters.
Tickets are $25 and $50 (VIP). The festival will be fully outdoors.
No stranger to the music scene, Vicki started out playing in Troupe DiCoupe, a punk band that appeared on the stages of legendary clubs CBGB, Max’s Kansas City, and Ron’s Place (in New Haven) throughout the 80s. More recently, Victoria has reprised her musical career as a solo artist – Vicki F – composing songs about challenges in her own life and overcoming struggles with drugs, alcohol, anger, and loss.
Today, Vicki F’s music ranges from old-school punk to alternative-acoustic-folk. She calls Patti Smith, Lou Reed, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Talking Heads and B-52s the inspirations behind her own work.
In 2019, she released her first solo recording, Definite Yes, on Norwalk, CT-based Retro Records. She’s just completed Perfect Here, a follow-up EP she recorded at Factory Underground Studio in Norwalk, with producer Ethan Isaac.
“While I write about challenges I’ve face in my own life, it’s become quickly apparent that these songs resonate with others,” says Vicki F. “Sharing our emotional experiences through song is a great way to connect with others. I’m so glad I have an opportunity to do that again, live and from the stage before family and friends.”
Performers on Sunday will also include Zoe Lewis, Tret Fure, Dianne Davidson, Crys Matthews and Heather Mae, and local artists.
The festival is one of the events being hosted by Triangle Community Center as part of its Fairfield County Pride 2021 offerings.
