You can see another article she wrote about PrestiÂ here. In her own words, â€œI started my research about female guitarists in 2006 when I was asked to give a lecture at the Bethlehem Guitar Festival. The theme of the that yearâ€™s event was â€œWomen in Guitarâ€ and my lecture discussed women as performers, composers and philanthropists. Through the process, I discovered wonderful players and music that was new to me. I have enjoyed continuing to share the information.â€ Thanks to Dr. Mowbray for providing us with this great info!
