Tret Fure
a benefit for The LGBT Community Center of the Desert.


Noted Woman's Music Artist Tret Fure will present a rare afternoon performance in Palm Springs on Saturday, February 2, at the Rock Garden, located at 777 South Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.

The show will open with local lesbian comedian Shann Carr, followed by an afternoon of music, food and drink. Tickets for the event are $25 and will go to benefit women's programs and events at The LGBT Community Center of the Desert.

Tret's career spans four decades, beginning her professional work at the age of 16, singing in coffeehouses and campuses in the Midwest. At 19 she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a songwriting and musical career, and within a year was performing as guitarist and vocalist for Spencer Davis, touring with him and penning the single for his album "Mousetrap". In 1973 she went on to record her own album on MCA/UNI Records, and to open for such bands as Yes, Poco, and the J Geils Band.

While recording her second album, Tret became interested in sound engineering, becoming one of the first women engineers in LA. In the early 80s, Tret left mainstream music to explore the independent side of the industry and soon discovered the blossoming genre known as Women's Music. A major player ever since, Tret has recorded and produced some of the best in women's music, including the legendary "Meg and Cris at Carnegie Hall".

Now after five acoustic releases on her own label, Tomboy Girl Records, Tret has re-established herself in the folk world winning the 2004 South Florida Folk Festival Singer/Songwriter Competition in two out of three categories. In 2009 she received the Janine C Rae Award for her work in Women's Music, and was voted "Pride In The Arts Favorite Female/Lesbian Musician"
