TAMI NEILSON | The F Word - Songs of Feminism in Country Music


From Dolly to the (Dixie) Chicks, The F Word is a journey of feminism through country music, from 1952 — the 1st female country artist at #1 – to today.

The award-winning Tami Neilson performs a rich songbook of country classics, and explores why songs of feminism were banned from country radio faster than a dirty word!

Known as one of the most conservative musical genres, country music’s predominantly male radio DJs have long held the position to make or break a career.

Still, artists like Dolly Parton and Loretta Lynn saw their songs soar to #1 and become feminist anthems.


This theatre concert of humorous storytelling, peppered with shocking statistics and fun facts, has earworms to boot.
