NORTHERN LIGHTS PRESENTS

BITCHES BREW, a night of top female instrumental improvising talent curated by Emma Smith.

Bitches Brew showcases the diversity of talent and raw energy of female improvisers from the fields of jazz, folk, electronic music and free improvising. Launched in 2015 in response to female performers, programmers and creators being sidelined by the music industry, Bitches Brew challenges the fallacy that there aren’t enough highly talented female instrumentalists around, or that more than one ‘girl band’ in a night would just be overkill. Pushing artistic boundaries by appealing to both the jazz and contemporary music audiences, Bitches Brew is a night of music that will blow your mind and feed your soul.

“I saw Miles Davis perform Bitches Brew in Toronto in the seventies. This is no less magical.” Audience member, Toronto

Oíche cheol tobchumtha na mban den chéad scoth coimeádta ag Emma Smith.

Is sampla maith iad Bitches Brew den réimse leathan buanna agus fuinneamh nádúrtha atá ag ceoltóirí tobchumtha ó sheánraí an snagcheoil, an cheoil tíre, an cheoil leictreonaigh agus na saorchumadóireachta. Bunaíodh Bitches Brew sa bhliain 2015 chun dul i ngleic leis an easpa deiseanna do thaibheoirí, do chláraitheoirí agus do chruthaitheoirí ar mná iad i saol an cheoil. Taispeánann siad gur bréag atá ann nach bhfuil go leor bancheoltóirí iontacha ann, agus nach nglacfadh an pobal le níos mó ná ‘banna cailíní’ amháin ar oíche áirithe. Oíche cheoil den chéad scoth a rachaidh i bhfeidhm go mór ort atá san oíche a chuireann Bitches Brew ar siúl, agus iad ag sárú teorainneacha na healaíne mar a mheallann siad lucht éisteachta an snagcheoil agus an cheoil chomhaimseartha araon.
