Live in the Lyre

Ralph McTell ~ Live in the Lyre: Festival of Folk

Sat 2 Mar @ 8.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

Returning to Australia for the first time in five years, English musical legend Ralph McTell will be armed with his guitar and the much-loved songs from his illustrious career that spans over six decades.

The unassuming singer-songwriter is a prolific touring and recording artist with a knack for illuminating the present and the road ahead with a strong connection to a shared, storied, past.

McTell is an artist who has always defined his own artistic term, his music emanating grace, experience and learning, natural poise and deep substance with harmonic and melodic riches contained in voice, songs and six stringed guitar glory.

Audiences all over the world still flock to hear and sing along to the timeless classic that catapulted him to global fame. Fondly abbreviated to “Streets”, the melodic beauty and cold hard truth of the song keeps it forever relevant.

McTell also tells his incredible life stories to enraptured audiences with song and banter. From hitch hiking with Rod, then known as Mod Stewart, playing Isle of Wight Festival alongside Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, a crap game with Tom Waits in LA, an Ivor Novello and numerous folk awards. Prepare to be enthralled.

Live in the Lyre

Daoirí Farrell ~ Live in the Lyre: Festival of Folk

First Australian Gig of the Tour!

Thu 7 Mar @ 8.00pm | Lyre Room

Dublin-born singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell is one of most important singers to come out of Ireland in recent years.

A product of Dublin’s famous club An Góilin Traditional Singers, since launching his own solo live career at the 2016 Celtic Connections, Daoirí Farrell has gone from strength to strength. On the verge of releasing his fourth solo album in early 2023, he can boast numerous honours from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards to ALSR Celtic Music accolades.

He has received endorsements from the likes of Christy Moore ‘Daoirí has assumed the mantle of Luke [Kelly]’), Mark Radcliffe (‘What a voice’) and Dónal Lunny (‘Daoirí is one of the most important traditional singers to emerge in the last decade’), with his music and live performances earning the acclaim of respected publications including MOJO, The Irish Post, Songlines and more.

‘‘Daoirí Farrell is singlehandedly spearheading a resurgence of the authentic in Irish folk music…he is rightly in demand all over the world.’ Irish Music

Burrinja presents

Eric Bibb ~ Live in the Lyre

The ultimate “blues brother” is coming to Burrinja.

Sun 2 Jun 4.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

Eric Bibb is known and revered globally as a fiery singer- songwriter with true soul, grounded in the folk/blues tradition but with contemporary sensibilities.

Testament to his endurance as one of the most relevant, leading bluesmen of our time, Eric’s most recent album, Ridin’ has received a Grammy nomination in the Best Traditional Blues Album category. It sits in the Top 10 of multiple blues and roots charts, has over three million Spotify streams and been lauded by critics as his “late life classic” and “a fervent gospel-backed blues manifesto”. The past twelve months alone has seen his entire catalogue clock up 15 million streams.

To experience Eric live is to be struck by his sheer humanity and convictions based in the values of the civil rights movement of the sixties. He challenges us to do better, to reach higher, and strive harder.
