This will be the trio’s only show in Melbourne this Summer to celebrate the launch of a crowd funding campaign to get back into the studio and record a brand new album. Bookings are highly recommended.
Miriam’s previous album Birds of the Moon ( released in November 2014) was nominated for an Aria award, made album of the week on radio national, had rave reviews and propelled the trio onto an extended tour around the country.
This Sydney based singer songwriter is well known not only for her unmistakable voice and song writing but for playing the 21 string West African harp known as the kora. Miriam draws her influences from far and wide – Having most notably spent long periods of time in studying traditional music in West Africa, her songs seamlessly blends African influences with folk infused melodies. In essence they are a collection of stories beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her emotive voice. Playing kora as well as acoustic guitar, Miriam is joined by exceptional strings players – violinist Lara Goodridge ( Fourplay/ Baby et Lulu) and cellist Kate Adams. Adding their sublime strings and lush vocal harmonies there is a chemistry between these musicians and their instruments that melds into a soaring beautiful soundscape.
