Event description

Alice Night is a candid singer-songwriter and performer likely to make you laugh, cry or both. She delivers soul-stirring songs alongside entertaining off-the-cuff banter. Alice has won the hearts of many over the last ten years of recording, releasing and touring original folk music. 

This November she’s touring the east coast to launch the first singles 'Peace Now' & ‘Eventually’ from her upcoming album ‘Wild Ivy.’ For this launch she will perform ‘folk songs, joke songs & bespoke songs’ at intimate venues from the Sunshine Coast to Melbourne. Most of this material has not been heard or seen before and is a celebration of the Weirdo Alice and the weirdo in us all. 

Expect outfit changes, character play, cuss words, poignant, provocative and playful assessments of reality, fake pop songs and authentic folk songs, (and odd mergings of the two,) all woven together into a night of expression through song. There is an aliveness to Alice's stage presence that means that no two shows are ever quite the same. 

Alice offers her audiences an oasis for feelings and contemplation, while singing songs that dip seamlessly between the mundane and the profound. Her vocal tone is both soothing and evocative as it draws out the truth in the room. 

This event will feature special guest performer Purdie Wood who will be offering a unique form of traditional wordless prayer and selected re-imagined popular and traditional songs accompanied by the Irish hand drum. She sings on the subjects of death, despair and longing and yet leaves audiences more awake to beauty. Purdie's voice has been shaped by the bellows of her ancestors and their ties to the ancient traditions of keening and lilting stemming from the British Isles. Her vocal liquidity resonates through the heart as it reaches back into the depths of time, and reacquaints us with a much needed connection to the earth and the unseen realms.
