Les Femmes s’en mêlent ° Interview with Michelle Blades
Written by english on 5 avril 2019
Promoting creativity, freedom and diversity, the main goal behind Les Femmes s’en mêlent is to showcase the independent women’s music scene. Going strong since 1997, the festival celebrates various genres of music made by creative women across the world, and were one of the first festivals to tour annually. In their 22nd edition, Les Femmes s’en mêlent returns to visit a total of 19 cities across France, Belgium and Switzerland, including 3 days in Paris from Thursday 4th til Saturday 6th April, before eventually finishing in Brest next Saturday (13th April).
Following a successful evening in Nantes this week, the festival continued in Rezé last night, seeing Michelle Blades and Cléa Vincent take to the stage. Before her set, Michelle Blades sat with Liv Cowle to discuss her latest album, Visitor (2019), the importance of promoting women working behind the scenes, and the influential women who inspired her to make music.
