Teaming up to bring together a heavyweight roster of local ladies in honour of International Women’s Day, join the National Music Centre and The Torchettes for two days of incredible programming.

Each day features a different lineup of live performances by local musicians including Bebe Buckskin, Nicole Dawn, Follow the Rabbit, Lashes, Kate Melvina, Amy Nelson, Yolanda Sargeant, Kate Stevens, Liz Stevens, Jess Vernon, Justine Vandergrift, Miesha & the Spanks, and many more.

You can also see the largest female choir collective in Alberta’s “herstory” performing a song of sisterhood by The Torchettes. There’s even a chance to explore a temporary photo exhibition from The Ten Percent project alongside a marketplace full of female artisans and entrepreneurs.

Celebrate the women who are playing a role in Calgary’s music and arts community alongside festivities happening around the world!

Scotiabank Backbeat Presents: International Women’s Day Weekend with The Torchettes takes place on March 9 and 10, 2019 at Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre (850 4th St. SE) and is included with admission.
