Continuing in their mission to champion women and gender minorities in the region’s music industry, Darlington collective Tracks are putting on a couple of superb events under their Noisy Daughters moniker this month.

Keen to encourage more women to get into the technical side of the industry, on Saturday 24th September they’ll be hosting an Introduction to Live Sound workshop at The Forum Music Centre in Darlington. They’ll be working alongside the Yorkshire Sound Women network to bring freelance artist and technician Jo Kennedy to Darlington to deliver the workshop. Jo’s extensive experience both as an artist performing experimental music, as well as a technical and creative workshop practitioner, will ensure her advice is invaluable. Jo gives some insight into what attendees can expect: “This two-hour workshop will provide a friendly, supportive space for you to get your hands on PA equipment and understand the essentials of live sound. The workshop will empower participants who are maybe wanting to run an open mic night or venue, or a performer wanting to speak with more confidence and authority to venue sound engineers.” The workshop is free to attend, but places must be booked. Check out Tracks’ website for more info.

The previous evening will also see a live gig held at the venue, headlined by monstrous riff makers Scruffy Bear, with support from alt. rock duo Pave The Jungle and Darlington’s own alluring alternative songwriter Eve Conway.

Noisy Daughters events take place at The Forum Music Centre, Darlington on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September.
