Day of the Girl Norwich was a hive of activity around International Women’s Day but the highlight was the GirlsRoarLive open mic night which took place on Saturday 7th March. Held in conjunction with our friends at The Wharf Academy we were joined by a number of local female artists who shared with us a range of songs, poems and spoken word pieces.
On the night 5 acts performed their work which included a range of original work as well as cover songs and spoken word. The acts, which included Erica Horton, Regal Escapee (Anna Carter), Melissa Jesney, Mide Sotubo and Kayleigh Watson entertained the audience with performances covering a range of eras, genres and styles. The event was made possible with the support of The Wharf Academy, a female-led music school who provided a beautiful space in the former medieval church of St Martin at Oak and with the technical support of Matt Watson who kindly offered his services as a sound engineer on the night. All who attended and took part agreed that the performances were inspiring and that the event was a fitting way of marking International Women’s Day celebrating the musical creativity of local women.
