SISTERHOOD HEAD SOUTH TOUR: BRIGHTON @ Marlborough Pub & Theatre
Time & Location
About the Event
The Sisterhood Music Collective is four accomplished Leeds musicians: Fuzzy Jones, Fran Wyburn, Astraluna and Miranda Arieh - each of whom have been featured on BBC Introducing and have a wealth of composing, performing and recording experience between them. Sisterhood first formed in July 2017, when the solo artists wanted to put on a gig to celebrate Yorkshire women in music. One of the unique features of the evening was that the artists took to the stage together to perform their original songs, individually and collectively. There was no headliner, only four musicians supporting each other.
Since then, Sisterhood have since played in Leeds, Sheffield, York, and Rotherham and will be appearing in Lincoln, London and Brighton towards the end of 2018. Sisterhood have also received grant funding from Leeds Inspired (Leeds City Council) to run four song-writing and music making workshops around Leeds, which will encourage aspiring songwriters and musicians of all ages and abilities to discover how music can bring people together and contribute to our wellbeing.
Sisterhood live gigs also include the artists interviewing each other about their experiences of being and independent musicians and issues that affect us individually and collectively such as mental health, ageism and sexism. They also reveal some of their experiences of the artistic process and their song writing journeys. Audience members are also encouraged to ask questions!
At the heart of Sisterhood is the belief that collaborating and not competing with fellow musicians makes us stronger, not only musically but also emotionally. Female musicians are still underrepresented in the wider music industry. Sisterhood aims to address some of the issues faced by women in music, especially those who are not only writing, recording and performing their own material but also managing themselves and their careers, and ultimately encourage other women to write, perform and collaborate too.
