CAS Presents Kevin Welch (USA) and Heath Cullen Together in Concert

Candelo Arts Society is proud to present Kevin Welch and Heath Cullen together in concert, following on from their sold out appearance at the 2023 Headland Writers Festival.

Kevin Welch's career as a recording artist and producer spans four decades. He is known worldwide for his solo work, his collaborations with The Dead Reckoners, The Flood, and Kane/Welch/Kaplin — his legendary trio with Kieran Kane and Fats Kaplin which was nominated two years in a row for Best Group by the Americana Music Association. He has written songs for Roger Miller, Waylon Jennings, The Highwaymen, Solomon Burke, Linda Ronstadt, Patty Loveless, and many others.

Over the last decade, Heath Cullen has crafted four landmark albums and earned a trail of devotees across his native Australia, the UK, Europe and North America. As a singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, he has collaborated on stage and in the studio with a vast array of artists, including Jolie Holland, Marc Ribot, Joe Henry, Elvis Costello’s Imposters and The Waifs, and his music has been recorded by artists as diverse as Michael Menager and Daniel Lanois.

This tour sees the two artists together on stage in an intimate and impromptu song-swap setting. For those who were lucky enough to witness their Headland show, you all know how truly special it was, and the fellas have promised that this concert will showcase even more of their masterful songwriting and musicianship... And for those that missed out on tickets last time: whatever you do, make sure you don't miss this one!

We at CAS are equally excited to be showcasing the talents of Lillian McVeity as the evenings’ opening act.

Lillian is a young singer/songwriter based in Bermagui. Her musical style include excludes clear jazz/neo-soul/folk  influences although her first single, “Hearts in December” exhibits a more indie pop oriented sound. Her song was also featured on Triple J’s Unearthed. Lillian has been performing around her local area since the age of 12, playing at a number of venues and festivals. Supporting the likes of Joe Camilleri, Alex Lloyd and Daniel Champagne. She is now focusing on her solo songwriting career and plans to release her album within the next year. Her guitar playing and vocal harmonies (which she achieves through vocal looping) create a muted and relaxed atmosphere.
