The Morrisons with The Mid North – 5 Church St Bellingen
March 24, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15 - $20
Sydney is not known for its fireflies – just as the Appalachian hill-country of Virginia, Kentucky and East Tennessee is not known for its picturesque sandstone harbours. But, as anyone familiar with the dun bushland quarters of the city’s hinterland knows, there are fireflies here – just as there are local pickers seized of all the spirit and fervour of those most enduring musical traditions of the American South. Sydney’s own The Morrisons are just such a band of peerless pickers: musicians possessed of ancient and unsleeping fire tempered and refined by conservatory education and grown warm and nourishing with closeness.
Winners of the Australian Songwriters Association’s 2014 Acoustic/Folk Song of the Year, The Morrisons compound a singularly intoxicating formula, imbuing original songs that tell essentially, stirringly Australian stories with all the timeless soul and rousing intensity of the American roots canon – spanning bluegrass, Americana, country and folk with fluidic ease.
