Women in Music

With International Women’s Day taking place on 8th March, we are dedicating a week to the women of Northern Irish music. Throughout the week we will be celebrating female artists from across the musical spectrum, as well as a number of industry professionals. Through features and interviews, we hope to shine a spotlight on issues that women in music still face today, with our female writers and photographers at the forefront of our content for the week.

You can catch up with every feature as we share them right here.
