Darlington music collective Tracks http://tracksdarlington.co.uk/are putting on a day which celebrates females in music which we hope will be followed by many more. Sarah Wilson from Tracks said… ‘It’s vital to give women in music credible, female-led music events nationally and it’s brilliant that we can do this in our hometown of Darlington. We are hoping to inspire the next generation of female musicians whilst giving a platform to the current batch of female artists that are leading the way.”
Noisy Daughters will take place at the fantastic new Hullabaloo on Borough Road in Darlington on Saturday 3rd March 2018 and includes–
A free songwriting workshop for women from 1pm – 3pm delivered by Liz Corney (from The Cornshed Sisters, Field Music), where participants are encouraged to bring their instrument and are offered guidance in all things musical composition. (Places are limited; so booking’s advised using this link: skiddle.com/e/13131591 )
A music panel discussion running 3.30pm – 4.30pm around the topics of issues facing women in the music industry today and what can be done to make a change. Panellists include Rianne Thompson from BBC Tees, Hannah Van Thompson (of the Van T’s), Claire Dupree from Narc Magazine, and Liz Corney (The Cornshed Sisters / Field Music), with Sarah Wilson from Tracks/BIG Little Gigs chairing. The discussion will last an hour with some time allocated for questions from the audience at the end.
A ticketed evening performance (Doors 7pm) by quality female artists in the form of BBC 6 Radio playlisted singer-songwriter Eve Conway, much hyped hip-hop act Leddie MC and energetic electro-pop pioneers Twist Helix. Headlining the night is hotly tipped Scottish 4-piece, The Van T’s whose ‘surf-pop with rock swagger balanced by sugar-pop harmonies’ have gained the attentions of radio DJs and music publications around UK and Europe, leading to appearances at T in the Park & Wickerman Festival as well as support slots with Honeyblood, Sunflower Bean and Rat Boy.
