As part of his forthcoming tour, legendary Warumpi Band founding member Neil Murray
will perform at the Burra Regional Art Gallery 4pm Sunday 7 May.
To coincide with the tour Neil has released Hindsight, a double CD album selection of 32
songs drawn from his back catalogue, some of which are live acoustic versions rather than
Neil would love to talk to you before he appears in Burra Gallery on the 7th May.
This will be a late afternoon barbecue with tickets $35 and drinks for sale, an opportunity
to enjoy the friendly atmosphere created by Neil’s music, enhanced by the beautiful quilts
made by the Burra Quilters Association.
Neil was recently awarded 2017 Artist of the Year at the Port Fairy Folk Festival. He first
appeared in the early eighties with the Warumpi Band, and has enjoyed a solo career
since 1989. The influence of twenty years of performing has propelled contemporary
indigenous music into the mainstream. My Island Home, Blackfella Whitefella, Fitzroy
Crossing, Jailanguru Pakarnu, Stompin Ground, From the Bush and Waru are some of the
well-known song titles.
One of Australia’s most respected singer / songwriters, Neil performs regularly at festivals
and live music venues in Australia and overseas. Burra Gallery’s Exhibitions Coordinator
Denise Officer – inaugural inductee into the NT Music Hall of Fame 2016 – has pulled some
strings to bring him to Burra for an evening to remember.
