The Halifax Pop Explosion (HPX) and Mirus Records are collaborating to empower more women, trans folks and/or people of colour to “be in bands and feel confident playing music.” The result is The Plumtree Project, an initiative named after a local all-female band that took the stage at the first HPX and for many years after. Erin McDonald, one of the project coordinators, says lack of accessibility and lack of encouragement are barriers to marginalized people trying to break into the music scene.
