KATIE NOONAN SUPPORTED BY JO DAVIE
Presented by BLEACH*
Roll out the picnic rug, and let ARIA-award winning songbird Katie Noonan serenade you into sunset with tunes from Joni Mitchell’s landmark album, Blue.
Accompanied by a five-piece band, this unique concert set amongst a backdrop of gum trees shouldn’t be missed. After selling out shows across the country, Noonan’s stirring performance will showcase songs from what Mitchell describes as the ‘purest emotional record’ of her stellar career.
Meanjin-based artist Jo Davie, kicks off the concert with her blend of folk and jazz, setting the tone for an evening of musical magic.
Over the past 20 years, five-time ARIA award-winning artist Katie Noonan has proven herself one of Australia’s most hardworking, versatile and prolific artists. Named one of the greatest Australian singers of all time by the Herald Sun, Katie has produced 24 studio albums over her career with seven x platinum record sales under her belt and 27 ARIA award nominations that span diverse genres. Katie has performed for royalty, national and international leaders, and blazed a trail for young women artists. Music, for Katie, is a lifelong lesson, a generous act of giving, and a means to change the world.
Graced with jazz sensibilities, exceptional vocal technique and a four-octave range, singer-songwriter Jo Davie offers up genuine story-telling. Bursting onto the scene as runner-up to the 2018 Folk Alliance Young Artist of the Year, she is winning audiences and accolades across Australia, having showcased at many festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival, and Cobargo Folk Festival. Whether performing her own songs or soaring above her band 'Cigány Weaver', she sings with heartfelt simplicity, technical skill and impressive versatility.
This event is a music-based work, with sound and visual components throughout. Sight is not essential to be able to engage with the work.
Once through the gates, the event site is relatively flat with a raised stage. During periods of wet weather, the grassed surface can become quite damp and in certain areas, muddy.

Patrons are encouraged to bring their own seating (picnic rug/camp chair etc.) for this event, however a small amount of seating will be on hand and can be provided on request. Amenities within the event area itself (bathrooms, food vendors etc.) will be spread several hundred metres apart within the grassed site.
