To celebrate International Women’s Day we are having an All-Girl Band night. Money raised will go to The National Women’s Council of Ireland and you’re gonna hear some amazing females collaborating and rockin out together. Come celebrate!
The Kates, Magdalena, Jessie and the Near Lights, Gan Ainm and probably many different variations of girl bands I can muster up around west cork.
And a couple inspiring women will give a few words including Holly Mckeever Cairns and Deirdre
There’s a revolution happening. And it’s certainly not going to be quiet.
Conceived at Clonakilty International Guitar Festival 2018 and birthed just before the biggest annual celebration of women in West Cork, Nollaig na mBan for Ovacare, The Kates took Clonakilty by storm.
Liz Clark (gtr), Eve Clague (elec gtr), Mide Houlihan (drums), Anne Marie O Brien (keys) and Paula K O’Brien (bass) are all musicians/songwriters in their own right but banded together to shine a spotlight on what contributions women make in a male dominated industry.
The Kates only play songs performed or written by women. They celebrate women who have come before them, blazed a trail and rocked the system.
Viva la revolution.
