One night. Four cities. Five venues. Over twenty artists
In paying homage to International Women’s Day in 2019, there are 20 plus of New Zealands most talented femme fatale musicians join forces across four cities to perform a series of shows on Friday, March 8th.
Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Mel Parsons has gifted album number 4 to the world 'Glass Heart', written across continents and recorded in Los Angeles with incredible American producer Mitchell Froom (Crowded House, Suzanne Vega, Elvis Costello, Missy Higgins, Randy Newman, Lindsay Buckingham/Christine McVie).
Described as 'slightly strange and completely mesmerizing,' (Gold Flake Paint UK) Dana Sipos is a renowned Canadian songwriter who inhabited the far north before going nomad. She tours extensively and internationally and usually by unorthodox travel methods; tall ship, bicycle, train, canoe. Her compelling new album, Trick of the Light, out on Toronto's Roaring Girl Records, has received a Songwriter of the Year nomination at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
The team behind Milk and Honey are Lani Purkis and Teresa Patterson and they have three goals for the festival
1. To celebrate the incredibly talented women who work in all facets of the New Zealand music industry;
2. To make female artists and crew visible to younger women, and encourage them to see many different possible roles they could find for themselves in the music industry;
3. To provide a safe, inclusive, respectful festival and gig environment.
Ladies, bring your friends and make it a girls night.
