What: A celebration of music by women
When: 7th and 9th of June 2018
Where: Bristol (Lantern) and Stroud (Goods Shed)
In association with Bath Film Festival and in promotion of the F-Rating – a rating awarded to films either directed or written by a woman – the orchestra played a pair of gigs, both at Colston Hall’s Lantern and in Stroud’s Goods Shed.
The music performed was written entirely by women and included works by Joni Mitchell, The Roches, Connie Converse, Ivor Cutler (close enough!), Beyonce, and P. J. Harvey. The orchestra was also joined by special guests Rita Lynch and Djanan Turnan performing arrangements of their own songs.
