Bruncheon! Great Female Singers/Songwriters
Saturday 8th March 2014
11.30am - 3pm, free entry
The theme for the March 8th Bruncheon is Great Female Singers/Songwriters.
Each year International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
We will be inviting some of Edinburgh’s top musicians to perform the songs that mean the most to them of all the great songs that have been sung or written by women. From Bjork to Aretha Franklin, we’ll be honouring some of the heroines that have touched our lives with their music.
There will also be a performance by the Ladies Guerrilla String Quartet, and the cafe will be preparing a special themed menu for the day.
