Working Woman Wednesday – Linda Bassick
WORKING WOMAN WEDNESDAY presents LINDA BASSICK
Linda is the Director of Girls Rock Vermont, a music education program dedicated to building self-esteem and encouraging self-expression. She also performs kids music each Friday morning at Radio Bean, is a member of Mellow Yellow & Steady Betty, and is a childcare provider.
Last night she spoke to 36 women at our monthly Enrichment Night at the Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility, sharing her experiences as a female musician and the challenges she’s faced.
When asked what inspires her about her work, she had the following to say:
“I love to communicate with these kids and show them that I understand what they’re trying to say, even if they may only have a few words. It encourages them to speak more and express themselves, and it develops these great little people.”
