Four accomplished Leeds musicians will take the stage at Seven Arts tomorrow in a unique celebration of local women in music.

The evening’s all-female line-up will see Fuzzy Jones, Fran Wyburn, Astraluna and Miranda Arieh – each of whom have been featured on BBC Introducing and have a wealth of composing, performing and recording experience between them – taking the stage together to perform their original songs, individually and collectively.

The artists will also be sharing some of their experiences and inspirations for song-writing with the audience.

Jennifer Birch, aka Astraluna, said “in a music industry in which according to a PRS report only 16 per cent of its members are women, we felt that a gig celebrating the diversity of music being produced by Leeds female musicians would be appropriate. We also wanted to have a collaborative feel to the event, which is why we are performing alongside each other as opposed to having a headline act”.

Tickets are £8 in advance (£10 on the door) from Seven Arts or online at www.sevenleeds.co.uk

Astraluna released her debut album The Pass of Storms last year.
