Transcript TWO SISTERS are feminist folk-singers dedicated to performing for and with women. Connie Renna, lead guitar, has been involved in many facets of feminist music: as a composer, lyricist, studio musician and solo performer. She sang at the 1973 NOW Conference in Vivica Lindfors' show "I Am A Woman." Sandee Cohen, rhythm guitar and harmonica, has been a back-up musician for many singers on recordings and live engagements. TWO SISTERS marks her debut as a singer. In the year they have been together, TWO SISTERS have been featured at the Intercollegiate Association of Women Students' 1973 Convention, The International Feminist Planning Conference, WBAI-FM,, various NOW Chapters, women's centers including Poughkeepsie and the New York City Women's Fire- house, and most recently at the N.Y.- NOWTown Hall Series. HAZEL SCOTT, pianist and singer, has been a favorite with audiences throughout the world for the past thirty years, and a figure in the forefront of the civil rights movement for twenty-five. Born in Trinidad, Ms. Scott came to the U.S. at age four, and made her debut as a pianist at 5, became a Manhattan "Cafe Society" star at 20 and married Congressman Adam Clayton Powell at 25. That same year, she made headlines when she was denied by the DAR to play Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C, and followed that confrontation by citing the National Press Club for its segregationist policies. Following the McCarthy years, when she was condemned as a "Red," Hazel moved abroad where she remained until she returned to the U.S. in 1967. She is currently working on her soon-to-be-published autobiography. Although reviews of her work are uniformly ecstatic, an anecdote she tells seems appropriate for her appearance at the Seventh National NOW Conference: "I went on strike in Hollywood in 1943 when Columbia was shooting the film, The Heat's On" with Mae West, because they wanted us to use several black women in the picture in a demeaning manner. They wanted the women to wear soiled aprons in an Army scene as they greeted their husbands and sweethearts. The cameras didn't roll for three days. They finally allowed the women to wear their own clothes and it turned out beautiful. There was nothing demeaning about it."
