Throughout March, we have been celebrating the fantastic women making music around International Women’s Day. Equality and diversity run deep in our veins, and we always try to champion as many different types of artists from a multitude of backgrounds, to keep our shows in The Music Space sounding fresh but also to let female artists know that they all have a place behind the mic.
Our local shows have been always spotlighting local female artists on special shows, and this is a perfect time to praise female artists for the excellent music being made.
Find incredible music from women-identifying artists in this list of diverse and dynamic women artists, voices, and musicians.
