Kerryn Fields....A farmhouse garden gig in Birregurra

NOVEMBER 2018 ~ Sunday 11 > Sunday 11 November

Kerryn Fields....A farmhouse garden gig in Birregurra

On Sunday 11 November 2018 at 2:00pm

LOCATION

Venue address provided the week of the event.
Located approx 3kms outside of the township of Birregurra, Birregurra, VIC 3242

Kerryn Fields is an adrogynous Melbourne-based folk singer whose enormous life story and hopeless romanticism gets her into trouble (and onto airplanes). Kerryn’s poignant and powerful songs, baritone brilliance and unassuming string-plucking virtuosity leave audiences transfixed, crying and laughing hysterically.
 
Inspired by great storytellers and musicians, it was Paul Kelly's song, co-written with Kev Carmody, ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’, that convinced Fields to move out of a haunted house in New Zealand, sell her Kombi van and buy a one-way ticket to Melbourne.
 
Good mates Sam Lohs and Rosie Burgess are her band, backing the amazon storyteller with out-of-control musicianship, divine harmonies & wild banter.
 
Hosted by music lovers and Birre locals, Jared and Brydie, on their beautiful farm just outside of town, this gig will be one of those shows that welds itself to your bones so tight that you can't shake it loose. This is an intimate gig and tickets are strictly limited. They will sell fast. 
 
The show is BYO and family friendly, so bring a picnic, a rug, or your deck chairs and sit back for a very special arvo on the farm.
 
Parking is plentyful and the venue address will be sent to you after you purchase your tickets. 
Tickets are $20 plus a small surcharge of $0.80 per ticket for CC processing fee and Trybooking fee
