Live Music at Burrinja



Harbour Agency Presents

The Whitlams ~
Black Stump Band

Sun 14 Aug @ 7.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

The Whitlams' alt-country offshoot sees Tim Freedman and drummer Terepai Richmond joined by an A-Team of country musicians. The band has 55 Gold Guitars and 10 ARIAs between them, with two CMAA Producers of the Year - Rod McCormack and Matt Fell - joined by Ollie Thorpe on pedal steel. 

This exciting new line up reconstructs The Whitlams' staples like 'No Aphrodisiac', 'Blow Up the Pokies' and  'You Sound Like Louis Burdett', plays some new originals and pulls out a batch of surprising Americana from Neil Young to Lyle Lovett. 

The Black Stump band formed in recording sessions in mid-2021, where they cut tracks that veered from campfire intimacy to rollicking country rock. They had such a good time that they decided to take the act on the road. 

The latest single "The Day John Sattler Broke His Jaw" is all over Country radio. Rhythm Magazine said the track is "the best Australian song you've never heard. Until now. The Whit/ams' country version is a revelation." 

Tickets - $58.50
Limited tickets at members price $53.50

Live in the Lyre

Kerryn Fields

Fri 23 Sep @ 7.30pm | Lyre Room

Fuelled by humility, integrity and a raw clarity of vision, Kerryn Fields paints enduring musical portraits that detail the colour and feeling of everything that makes us human. 

Drawing comparisons with the likes of timeless creators, Cat Stevens, Townes Van Zandt, Joan Baez, Neil Young, and more, Fields’ trademark warmth of character - evident in both life and music - fuels a creative offering that’s equal parts captivating, refined and heartrendingly insightful. 

With one hand on guitar and the other firmly upon heart, music moved Fields through a time when chronic illness, family separations and the weight of life changes presented this artist with her biggest challenges yet. It would be her relocation to Melbourne during which Fields would settle into her most significant relationship to date: that with her newfound network of fellow career singers, songwriters and performers. Life as she’d known it would change forever. 

Newstead Live Music Festival’s Troubadour Artist of the Year (2019), winner of the MLT Songwriting Award (NZ Country Music Awards 2019) and New Zealand’s Best New Broadcaster (at age 19), Kerryn Fields has released a range of celebrated records including debut LP, Rascal (2015) and award-winning, critically acclaimed single, Mamma (2019).

Sure, her music speaks volumes. But it’s the captivating warmth and courage of this artist that really leaves the audience shining from the inside-out.
