Rosie talks now plays Sunday

As a kid Rosie Burgess (pictured) started writing poetry on scrap pieces of paper and then pasted them into a book. These days, those poems form the basis for her songs.

With a new album Humble Pie under her belt, Melbourne-born Rosie is headed for the Northern Rivers where shell play the Sphinx Rock Caf at Mount Burrell this Sunday, June 1.

Im really looking forward to that gig. I hear Sphinx Rock Caf is a special place, Rosie said when she talked to The Scene from a park in Sydney. And yes, Rosie, it is a special place. With her passion for veganism and the environment, Rosie will fit right in.

I began to seriously get into the music scene two years ago. I like playing to people. Playing to people is really playing with people. I like that, Rosie said.

But her music, despite her environmental passions, is not a polemic.

I dont tend to be as political in my music as in daily conversation, Rosie said. Music is about poetry.

With her guitar, harmonica and mandolin Rosie Burgess will bring that poetry to pretty Sphinx Rock Caf from 1pm.
