In the meantime, our intrepid wummin on the ground in Glasgow, Josephine Sillars, asked Malachy and Chrissy a few searching questions…

  1. I’m very excited to hear what your collaborative piece is. Without giving too much away, what can we expect to hear from you both?

Malachy: We’ve written a couple of songs together before, and we’ll probably be playing at least one of those on Sunday. Hopefully we’ll have a new song or two for the occasion as well

Chrissy: Harmonies and hooks, I hope. With minimal choruses.

…MALIKA BOOKER!

Malika Booker

Writer, spoken word and multidisciplinary artist whose writing, collaborations and theatre shows have taken her all over the world! Malika is one of the UK’s leading spoken word artists; this is a rare and wonderful opportunity to catch her work in Scotland. This is an absolute must see.

In her own words

‘Writing is the best way to engage the imagination, to create magic, change the world. I write because my mother tells me I am the first generation of women to be able to tell our stories and because I know there are women in the world who cannot speak. I write to make sense of life, to make the ordinary extraordinary. I write to tell stories, our stories. But most importantly, I write because I cannot do anything else. If I am not writing, then I am not breathing.’

…LOKI with BECCI WALLACE!

LokiBecci

Two of Scotland’s best loved artists have teamed up to create something incredibly powerful, blending the best of Loki’s social commentary meets rap with Becci’s tender, powerful and wry vocals and crafted verse. We were delighted to have them at Rally & Broad in Edinburgh last year, and even more thrilled to be bringing them to Glasgow. Come experience this!
