Women Out West Festival: Connie Lush And Blues Shouter + Judith Jones Band + Black Wolf Run
Women Out West Festival is the brainchild of Cumbrian musician and singer/songwriter Judith Jones. After watching a DVD of Lilith Fair the female artist concert series and travelling music festival founded by Sarah McLachlan in North America, Judith was inspired to create a UK based equivalent. The purpose of the festival is to encourage women to find their voice in the arts, and not to conform to current media stereotypes of artistes, especially musicians and singers. We hope the festival will provide role models and inspiration which will encourage women of all ages to explore their own creativity. Whether it is through learning to play an instrument, writing poetry or becoming involved in painting or photography.
The festival will appeal to a wide cross section of the community, as there will be poetry, music and songwriting workshops and art exhibitions and competitions, as well as art and craft stalls.
At Florence Arts Centre there will be lots of entertainment for the family including Magical Mel and her Relax kids fairy workshops, Wild Zucchinis Food stall, poetry, singing, drawing and music workshops, Qigong and Shamanic Therapeutic Healing workshops and art exhibitions and sculptors from around the county. There will also be a variety of trade stalls.
Egremont Market Hall includes the unique ‘Goddess Village’ where local therapists will be offering taster sessions in Indian Head Massage, back and shoulder massages and aromatherapy and homeopathic remedies. There will also be a variety of stalls offering delights as diverse as handmade soaps and oils, and a local hairdresser will even be offering “feather hair extensions”.
