LIZ STRINGER: FIRST TIME...FOR THE LAST TIME
Solo tour With Special Guests
Wednesday, 18th September 2023
Grand Junction Hotel - The Grand Junkyard , Maitland
Show starts: 7pm
Much-loved Milk! Records recording artist and Melbourne singer/songwriter Liz Stringer caps off a busy 2023 and brings to an end her work on her acclaimed 2021 album First Time Really Feeling with her First Time... For The Last Time solo tour.
Having achieved her first entry into the ARIA Top 20 and an AIR Award for Best Blues & Roots album in 2021, Liz spent most of 2022 with Midnight Oil, working as their backing vocalist and support act in Australia and around the world on their Resist tour. Then, in February 2023, she and fellow Oils guest William Crighton released a cover of the Oils' "Golden Age", featuring Jim Moginie on bass and Rob Hirst on drums, following which they toured as a duo. In March, Liz was Port Fairy Folk Festival’s 2023 Artist of the Year and she performed two triumphant sets at the iconic festival with her band. In May, after four From Brunswick to Brixton solo shows in Melbourne, she headed to London to record her new album and play a handful of shows.
Liz's First Time...For The Last Time tour will see the artist bring an end to the long cycle of work that began in with the release of the album in the midst of COVID lockdowns. It's a case of unfinished business, as the tour will finally reach the places that she couldn't get to in 2021, thanks to state border closures and the like. All the shows will follow the intimate format of her From Brunswick to Brixton shows; Liz will perform her songs completely solo, giving audiences a real insight into how they were written and how they sounded before she presented them to her band.
This is a rare chance to see one of Australia's greatest contemporary singer-songwriters in an intimate solo setting and the last chance to revisit her most successful and acclaimed album to date before she introduces her new material. Don't miss out!
