From the desert to the distant sea
NEIL Murray, a folksinger in the foremost rank of the Australian tradition, alongside such luminaries as Paul Kelly, Kev Carmody and Shane Howard, will play the Lismore Bowlo on Friday, April 19.
Neil first appeared in the early eighties as a founding member of the Warumpi Band, whose 20 years of uncompromising desert rock propelled contemporary indigenous music into mainstream Australia, yielding such classic songs as My Island Home, Blackfella Whitefella, and Fitzroy Crossing.
Neil has since become one of Australia's most respected and influential singer/songwriters and released 11 solo albums, his latest being Sing the Song - the essential Neil Murray, a double-album compilation.
Tickets are $25 to see this towering legend of song from the heart of our national consciousness.
