Heart‘s Nancy Wilson and Lita Ford are among the many artists taking part in an auction benefiting Girls Rock Camp Alliance, an organization supporting summer-camp and music-educations programs for female, transgender, and gender non-conforming youth.
Various female musicians are donating stage-used equipment, signed memorabilia and more to the sale, which gets underway this Thursday, May 10, at Reverb.com.
Wilson has contributed a Boss BF-3 Flanger guitar pedal to the auction, while Ford has donated an autographed photo, guitar strings and a guitar pick.
Other artists who have contributed items to the sale include The B-52s‘ Kate Pierson, Bonnie Tyler, Lady Gaga, Melissa Etheridge, Amy Ray of Indigo Girls, Dolly Parton, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and many more.
In conjunction with the auction, some of the participating musicians have shared tidbits of advice and encouragement for young people interested in playing music.
“Every person you play music with will bring you new learning,” says Wilson. “Every guitar sound you play will bring you new ideas. Keep playing, keep learning, keep creating.”
Ford comments, “There are no rules in rock ‘n’ roll and no right or wrong, so pursue what you believe.”
