In this podcast, I talk to Heidi Bang Tidy and Lady Wildflower, co-producers of the award-winning Hebden Bridge Burlesque Festival. We discuss the politics of burlesque, the history of the festival and this year’s round table discussion I Am Woman, Hear Me Phwoar featuring Myself, Dr Claire Nally and Dr Jacki Willson (and others tbc) on the Sunday of this year’s festival. I also discuss my broader research and engagement project in more detail.
The music that you here in this podcast is Trouble by my good friend and long serving comrade at the Cat’s Pyjama’s Burlesque Co-operative, Shannon Reilly, where she was for many years our regular chanteuse. The full version of the song can be found along with it’s video here, and purchased on the Shannon Reilly Band album also called Trouble.
