Local arts and culture website, www.alternativebarnsley.com, has put together an evening of live music in celebration of Barnsley’s female musical talent, which will take place on Saturday 7th March at the Barnsley Rock and Blues Venue.
The event not only coincides with International Women’s Day weekend, but will also act as a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Care.
The line-up for the event includes the long awaited return of popular alt-rock band AZTEC DOLL and the live debut of Lauren Tate’s new band, HANDS OFF GRETEL. There will also be live solo sets from LAURA KELLY and HARRIET ROSE GRANT, who was nominated for Best Solo Artist at the 2014 Barnsley Music Awards.
Jason continues, “As well as the live music, we will also be holding a raffle, which will include prizes from local musicians, artists and businesses, including Kate Rusby and the artist Roseanna Hanson. All proceeds raised at the event will go to Breast Cancer Care. I chose this charity as a family member has recently been undergoing chemotherapy following her own diagnosis of Breast Cancer last year.”
Since the event was announced, we have been asked if gents are allowed in. We can announce that the event is open to absolutely all music fans – including fellas.
