Some extremely talented women performers are coming to the Prescott Center for the Arts for a special concert supporting the Prescott Area Womens Shelter (PAWS). Prescott's The Gurley Girls join with Celia and California's Trish Lester, a member of the group "Women on the Move" for this inspirational evening of music with a purpose. Local radio personality Marnie Uhl will host the evening.

"Celia's music calls women to their glory and men to their hearts." Marianne Williamson Celia is a singer, songwriter, and storyteller who dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and the sacred. You honestly never know what will happen with Celia on stage. Think Enya meets Joan Baez meets Tina Fey.

The Gurley Girls is a uniquely Prescott group, combining local lore with folksy, bluesy music. The seven-member Gurley Girls say their motto is best summed up as: "Versatile fem-folk pop rock and seasonably/festive 'tunage' with a deep desire to contribute to our community."

Singer-songwriter Trish Lester has been entertaining audiences for decades. Several of Trish's songs are included on compilation CD "Car Talk Car Tunes Volume III -- Stairway to Heapdom". She is also a member of the California trio, Women on the Move.

Marnie Uhl, a popular local radio and TV host, arts activist, and PAWS supporter, will welcome you with her wit and warmth.

During its three years of service, the Prescott Area Womens Shelter has worked to alleviate Yavapai County's growing need for a permanent emergency shelter for homeless women and children. The homeless/transitional women and children are the most vulnerable in our community. It is PAWS' mission to help homeless women to gain the skills, resources and support to transition out of homelessness.
