In the current situation as we are unable to safely run and promote live events, we’ve created a nostalgic podcast, all about She17, with most episodes about 17 minutes long, reflecting on our community events and show casing some of the musicians we’ve had the pleasure of hosting. An oral and aural history project, if you like!
These episodes can be found on Podbean, Google and Apple podcasts. All are collated and narrated by Kim Watson, She17 Founder and co-creator. See of the first four episodes details below. Click on the title to play each episode.
