Amy Rigby: Girl to City

GIRL TO CITY: A Memoir follows one young woman's progression from Elton John fan in the Pittsburgh suburbs to Manhattan art student; from punk show habitué to fledgling musician to cult singer-songwriter who caused a sensation with 1996 debut solo album Diary Of A Mod Housewife. Set in a ramshackle twentieth century New York world of homemade clubs and bands, through love affairs, temp jobs and motherhood, Girl To City: describes the screw-ups and charmed moments it took for a girl in the crowd at CBGB to pick up a guitar and sing her truth on stage, creating an identity as an artist back when female musician role models were rare. The challenge of balancing art with real life is one of the themes that define Rigby's work as a songwriter, and those struggles are the basis of this story. For anyone who ever imagined trying to make a life out of what they love.


Amy will also play a few songs!
