For much of music history, rock music has been considered a boys club.

Girls Rock NC is turning 10 years old this summer.  The series of week-long day-camps gathers girls of varying ages and musical abilities to form bands.  They write original music and play a show at the end of the week. 

But tonight, some male musicians are covering songs by female artists at the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw to benefit the nonprofit.  With me this morning is Girls Rock NC founder Amelia Shull, and Stu McLamb of the band The Love Language

You may know Heather McEntire as the vocalist and guitar player of Mount Moriah.  The beloved band has released two albums and toured nationally, but they call the Triangle their home.
