2012 Women in Tune Festival - Thursday 16th August to Monday 20th August
We have been busy bees in the last month, read on for some of our lineup!
Horse is coming to WIT this year!
Horse has a wide UK following, has toured with Tina Turner and has had several record chart hits in Europe. She is renowed for her rich, sonorous voice, and has been descibed as "one of Scotland's all-time great vocalists, also possessed of a keen songwriting intelligence".
The Carrivick Sisters
Widely considered the finest young folk/bluegrass duo in the UK. Runners-up in the BBC Folk Awards, several radio and TV appearances (inc Woman's Hour last year), they toured throughout UK, Ireland, Europe and North America and have just released their 4th CD at age of 21!
Rachel Delicata, acoustic guitar and vocals, and Shirley Novak, double bass, backing vocals, acoustic guitar and lap-steel (not all at the same time!). We perform original material as well as covers done in our own unique style which has been described as 'Americana' (Civil Wars etc.) and is always a journey of sensitive music and song.
Meet Your Feet
Lively 8-piece all women's Band from Bristol, originally gigging from 1987-1992. Major festivals including WOMAD and Glastonbury. Several international tours and TV appearances. Voted best Bristol Band by Venue magazine. Great mix of soul, jazz and latin- very danceable (hence "Meet Your Feet")
