Gwenno is performing a one-off set at Liverpool Sound City, and is looking for acts to join her
The set will involve some of Liverpool’s most exciting emerging female talent
Liverpool Sound City have announced that Gwenno is performing at the festival with a special one-off performance of brand-new work with her producer, Rhys Edwards, as well as some of Merseyside's most exciting emerging female talent.
Gwenno's project encourages the exploration of concepts inspired by a sense of place and people, drawing from Liverpool's rich and varied communities.
The five day residency and show are part of an ongoing partnership with Both Sides Now, a pioneering initiative from music charity Brighter Sound to support women in music across the North. This continues Sound City's position as the UK's leading independent festival for new and emerging talent.
