Powerhouses of Australian music and boss ladies of the local scene will combine for Stand By Your Woman, a night in celebration of the female instrumentalists who work hard to make the Australian music scene what it is.

From opera to hip hop, a large array of genres will be covered via all-female house band, the SPIRE ensemble — 14 of the most talented ladies around will play through the night of Sunday, September 16. Joined by guest artists from across a whole bunch of various music types, SPIRE will accompany artists such as Mojo Juju, Kate Ceberano, Clare Bowditch, Mantra and Darren Middleton.

SPIRE features violinists, a cellist, saxophonists and percussionists, and will groove along with the diverse line-up of guest artists, ending up in a huge night of music brought to you — mostly — by lady power. Read the full line-up of house band and guest artists online: it'll be a doozy having all of them in the one place.
