Watch PBS Arts from Cleveland: Women Who Rock at 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 on Wisconsin Public Television.

The PBS Arts festival rolls on down to Cleveland this week to capture  energetic performances and engaging conversation from some of the highest-grossing female musicians of all time. Hosted by Cyndi Lauper, Women Who Rock also features Tina Turner, Mavis Staples, Darlene Love, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Bonnie Raitt, Wanda Jackson, Deborah Harry, Ronnie Spector and Kathleen Hanna of the bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre.

The program invites us to learn about the paths these women took to achieve artistic stardom and — most importantly — an opportunity to watch some of their best and brightest performances.

Watch an advance snippet of one of these performances below, as Lauper joins Staples on stage for a rip-roarin’ take on the Band’s “The Weight.”
