The CD Billy the Rabbit is a musical interpretation of Michael Leunigs poetry by Byron singer-songwriter Gyan and friends. Billy the Rabbit is 18 folk/pop songs accompanied by a 48-page hard-bound book of Leunigs words and drawings.
To celebrate the CDs recent release Gyan and Leunig will be holding a special live performance at the Byron Community Centre on Saturday, October 28, from 8pm. Leunig will draw while Gyan sings the songs with her band. Interesting.
Leunig loves the songs.
Im completely enchanted, honoured and amazed by what you have done with my poems, he said to Gyan. I hear my own words afresh... mirrored back to me by an angel. Awww.
Tickets are $35 and available from the venue (6685 5659).
Late News: Tickets for the Saturday show have been selling so well that the Byron Community Centre has added another show for this Sunday, October 29, at 8pm.
