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.

The Morrisons

"The Morrisons play big band folk, like a mash up of both Inside Llewlyn Davies and Oh Brother Where Art Thou's T-Bone Burnett" - Concrete Playground.

"An incredible bluegrass/country/folk 7 piece" - AU Review.

Winners of the 2014 folk/acoustic song of the year at the Australian Song Writers Association Awards The Morrisons fuse Australian stories and sounds with the spirit and intensity of old time American bluegrass, country and folk. With high, lonesome singing, fast picking and original songs inspired by folklore, family and their lives as young Australians, they deliver a live show full of raw energy and emotion.

They have performed at major festivals around the country including Port Fairy, The National, Blue Mountains Music Festival, Out On The Weekend, Secret Garden, and supported highly acclaimed international artists Lindi Ortega (CAN) and Lake Street Dive (US). In 2015 they co-presented a regular night of country music in Sydney with Lost Highway (Universal Music's country label), where they have hosted artists like Shane Nicholson, Catherine Britt and Emma Swift. Their show Man of constant sorrow: A tribute to the music of Oh Brother Where Art Thou, has sold out two years in a row, with a cast featuring Ngaiire, All Our Exes Live In Texas and Tommy Dean. Their debut single was awarded Folk/Acoustic Song of The Year at the 2014 Australian Song Writers Association Awards and their debut album is due for release in 2016.
