A celebration of women in music will kick off the 2019-20 Fremont Midland Entertainment Series.

Tara Vaughan will present “She Rocks” at 7 p.m. Aug. 25 at the Fremont High School Auditorium. The concert is the first of seven shows part of this season’s Fremont-Midland Entertainment Series.

“She Rocks” celebrates women artists and songwriters of the 1960s-1980s, woven together with songs and stories. Backed by a four-piece band, Vaughan performs music from artists such as Janis Joplin, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Blondie, Heart and many more.

In this unique revue, Vaughn presents an evening of classic rock and roll with the focus on female artists and songwriters.

In Vaughan’s vocal style, you can hear echoes and the influence of legends like Patsy Cline and Sam Cooke. Her abilities on the piano are reminiscent of rock greats Elton John and Carole King.
