Neil Murray “Keep Rolling On” Concert

past event

Description

Maverick song man Neil Murray is set for an exclusive and intimate performance at the Great Club on Saturday April 24th

A founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band, which penetrated  mainstream Australia with the iconic anthems My Island Home and Blackfella Whitefella, he is now a respected singer/songwriter, with a string of remarkable albums, the most recent being Blood & Longing and Tjungu  (all in one, joined together) with Sammy Butcher.
His latest single, Keep Rolling On, celebrates the continuance of First Nations people and their culture in Australia and is an apt title for the resumption of his touring after being interrupted by the Covid pandemic.

Neil Murray’s accolades include the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the year, the 1995 APRA song of the year award for My Island Home. The latter plus Jailanguru Pakarnu ( Out from Jail- a 1983 co-write with Sammy Butcher in the Luritja language) have been selected into the National Film and Television Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia Series.

Artists such as Mary Black, Jimmy Little, Missy Higgins, Powderfinger and Liz Stringer have recorded his songs. Always engaging live, Neil Murray’s work has contributed substantially to Australia’s contemporary music heritage.  Don’t miss one of Australia’s finest singer songwriters in concert
