Event description

Description

As part of BBC Sounds Independent Venue Week 2020, we are proud to present FemmeFest: a full day of female identifying musicians playing original music.
Members of the Girls’ Rock School song circle (as featured on the recent BBC Scotland documentary ‘Riot grrl rock’) will be showcasing original material covering a range of genres.

Come down and support your local artists and their fave venue.

LINE UP

Lou Mclean

'Acoustic folk-pop with a savage twist. Catchy hooks, crystal clear vocals and pop played faster than Bad Brains. The Proclaimers meets Kathleen Hanna.'

Dark Hearts

'Stories with a twist. Night time tales in the Sleeping City. These are not love songs.'

Lorraine Rahmani

Molly Wyrd

Bringing you dark humoured sad folk punk from Fife. She delivers sharp rhythms with a healthy dose of degeneracy and tounge in cheek lyrics about f*ckboys, mental health and failed romances.

Vee Ruins

unapologetic, apopolectic folk punk coming for all you fakes.

Beth Myers

'Beth Myres likes to tell stories using the land, folk and song. Musings over her place in the natural world and among fellow humans with their odd behavious. Fictional characters filled with sorrow and joy set to song.'

Ashley Stein

Fistymuffs front woman explores her darker side with sad synth songs


Lilla

Lilla is a Hungarian singer, song-writer, multi-instrumentalist, currently residing in Edinburgh. Like most of her fellow countrymen, she’s hopelessly neurotic. Lilla uses song-writing as a form of self-help and feels most comfortable to do this in an acoustic setting; hence, she thinks her music can be best described as ‘sad folk’. She only started to write songs two years ago, when she came across the wonderful GRS song-writing circle, which she attends to this day. Her muses are Joni Mitchell and Jackson C. Frank. According to her kind flatmate she sounds a bit like Angel Olsen, Joan Baez and Sibylle Baier.
