Women Musicians

Beth Orton
There are many exciting Scottish women musicians  
Be Charlotte, Stephanie Cheape, Iona Fyfe, Siobhan WilsonKarine Polwart,

But there is also a serious lack of women producers, songwriters and executives. Women must think bigger. I believe we must have more business and management courses in education. There are many women in media and promotions.

Congratulations to the recent success of Scots! – Calvin Harris (our major Scots producer) at the Brit awards; Tom Walker from Kilsyth and Lewis Capaldli from Glasgow! Well done to all.
