Mercury Prize nominee Hannah Peel has said the time has come to “rewrite history” for Northern Ireland’s female musicians and composers, who might have felt overshadowed in the past.

The Craigavon-born artist said she was delighted to see more women at the forefront of the local music scene, which she described as having “so much power and passion”.
