Organiser of the event Sara Alakus commented “We approached James Watt College music students to get involved in the event as the music department has an excellent reputation and I have heard from previous students and colleagues that Dennis Haggerty, the vocal coach at the college, is fantastic.

Mia Farrell, HND Music Business student at the college, has been helping out with the organisation of the event. She commented “It has been great experience for me getting involved in the Lipstick Music Project. I have been co-ordinating the performers, producing their biographies, liaising with the organisers and sending promo pictures and links to their music. All the girls are looking forward to performing in the intimate venue alongside other talented up and coming female musicians.”

Andrea McHugh, Curriculum Manager for Music at James Watt College, added “We are delighted to be able to showcase some of our female singer/songwriters. It is a good opportunity for them to take to the stage and show everyone their talents; it should be a great event, with music ranging from folk and indie to soul, rock and pop.”

Tickets will be available on the door, priced £4 (£3 concessions). For more information visit www.lipstickmusicproject.com. For more information on Music courses at James Watt College, visit www.jameswatt.ac.uk/music
