Events Celebrating Women´s Day 2019
Musical celebrations of International Women´s day include Coven´s International Women´s Day Tour and a special night "I´m Every Woman" presented by Green Note
Rowan Rheingans from Lady Maisery can´t wait to return to one of her favourite venues in one of her favourite cities: “It’s so special to play the Bush Hall, London as part of this tour, I’ve heard so many great things about it as a venue. We´re really looking forward to celebrating International Women’s day, albeit it a few days early, with fans old and new on Tuesday 5th March 2019!”
A unique collaboration described by The Guardian as ‘an invigorating union’, Coven is: the exquisite songwriting duo and BBC 6 Music favourites O’Hooley & Tidow; the enchanting BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Lady Maisery and the irrepressible Leicester songwriter, activist and performer Grace Petrie.
Four years ago, Coven got together to celebrate International Women’s Day with a series of three concerts. Since then, the tour has extended year on year, with 2017 seeing them release Unholy Choir; an EP of Coven’s special collaborations ("potency and purpose" - Louder Than War).
“With purpose and urgency, they create powerful, enthralling work"
O’Hooley & Tidow
"Defiant, robust, political, northern, poetical folk music for the times we live in.’"
"A powerful new songwriting voice."
This special one-off concert is a musical celebration of all the ages and stages of being a woman, both in terms of the performers themselves and the thematic content of the songs. The night will include material by Joni Mitchell, Janis Ian, Fleetwood Mac, Martha Wainwright, Nina Simone, Brandi Carlyle, Dar Williams and much much more! Led by The Magic Numbers’ Michele Stodart, with a glorious array of artists. Part of JW3’s International Women’s Day Festival.
