“Neil Murray is simply one of the greatest singer/songwriters Australia has ever produced….his music is hard hitting and true to life… it’s real…, just like the man himself.” [Lee Kernaghan]
One of Australia’s finest singer songwriters, Neil Murray, will perform an intimate solo concert on Friday May 2nd at the Bangalow Bowling club. Neil Murray performed last year at the Bangalow Bowling club to a captivated audience. This year he has a new album “ Bring Thunder & Rain” (ABC music) – the 12th release of his solo career.
Neil Murray’s career spans 3 decades –from being a founding member of the Warumpi Band in the 1980’s to an influential singer songwriter of national significance. He has released a string of unique albums and is an APRA song of the year award recipient for penning the iconic “My Island Home”. He is also the writer of such classics as “Blackfella Whitefella”, “Good Light in Broome”, “Native Born”, “Long Grass Band”, “Lights of Hay” and many others.
Neil will introduce new songs from his latest release as well as renditions of well known songs from his back catalogue. Support for the evening is Jimmy Dowling.
“Neil Murray’s an incredible storyteller whether he’s writing poems, songs or novels. There’s no one quite like him in America – but I’d rank him with Jackson Browne, Townes Van Zandt and Rodney Crowell in the singer-songwriter pantheon.” [John Lomax III]
“An outstanding singer/songwriter capable of generating great enthusiasm and warmth in his audience, Neil Murray was welcomed by his fans at the 2006 Woodford Folk Festival with absolute adoration.” [Bill Hauritz, Woodford Folk Festival]
Don’t miss this engaging and fascinating performer, whose songs shine like so many rare gems hard won in an arduous journey through the nation’s conscience. Bangalow Bowling Club, Friday May 2, 7.30pm.
