Murwillumbah?s musical girls doing it for themselves



TWEED'S female musicians will team up to showcase their talents in a one-off performance in Murwillumbah called Let's Hear It For The Girls on August 20.

The huge variety of acts will feature established and up-and-coming artists from comedians, to singer/songwriters to vocal, rap and drumming groups.

Organiser Katya Skorik, Murwillumbah Musicians Club secretary, said she thought it would be a great opportunity for women who generally don't get a lot of attention in the music industry.

"It will be good for women to take the initiative and perform independently for a day," she said.

"It's also a fantastic way for students who are studying performance as part of their HSC to get some experience. "And I'm really hoping it will become an annual event in the Tweed."

Ms Skorik said there would be around 20 performances which would kick off at the Court House Hotel at 3pm and continue until 8pm.

"Everyone is welcome to come along and hear some great local performers," she said.

There is a $5 entry free and children are free. All funds raised will go to Murwillumbah Musicians Club to help them put on more events.
