Prog's leading women unite for #SheRocks


Earlier this month, some of progressive music's leading singers and other women who work with the genre gathered at London's You Tube Space for a discussion on the changing role women have to play in progressive music - long seen, if somewhat incorrectly these days, as a male-dominated genre.

Pentangle frontwoman Jacqui McShee, Heather Findlay, Cellar Darling's Anna Murphy, iamthemorning singer Marjana Semkina, Magenta's Christina Booth, music PR Sharon Chevin, who works with Steve Hackett, Yes, Ian Anderson and more, and Catherine Jackson, the promoter of the new prog festival Radar discussed their experiences in a frank and open discussion chaired by Prog's own Jo Kendall.

Following on from this Cellar Darling played a short set highlighting tracks from their new album The Spell to an audience of Prog competition winners ahead of their current UK tour.
