Join The Morrisons for a night of aching harmonies, driving rhythms, humour, pain, and musical truth, as they play the bluegrass albums of Paul Kelly.
Paul Kelly has captured the Australian musical landscape like no other songwriter. His music spans genres, places and people, influencing countless Australian musicians. Amongst his most critically acclaimed work are his two Bluegrass inspired albums: Smoke (1999), in which he teamed up with renowned Australian bluegrass outfit Uncle Bill; and Foggy Highway (2005) a sweeping collection of beautifully crafted songs and expressive playing. Some of the songs from these albums are considered amongst Kelly’s finest, including the Ned Kelly epic ‘Our Sunshine’ and the impossibly beautiful ‘Meet Me in the Middle of the Air’. Smoke was awarded album of the year by the Victorian Country Music Association in 2000 and Foggy Highway was listed in the book 100 Best Australian Albums.
To pay homage to this great Australian songwriter, Sydney’s own bluegrass stalwarts The Morrisons will be putting on a very special night of music playing both albums in their entirety.
