“We were thrilled to be able to expand the STF/NCH Commissioning Scheme this year to projects and recording, which ensured a more open, diverse and relevant reach across the wide range of music-making activities happening throughout Ireland today. Wyvern Lingo are a wonderful Irish trio and we are delighted that this project award has helped expand their output at home and abroad. STF are proud of the innovative and high standard of applications received from individual women and groups led by women across all three schemes and hope that these awards continue to help support great art, which might not otherwise find a voice.”Karen Power, Chair of Sounding the Feminists
