From Murwillumbah to Melbourne and Gowrie Park to Gympie, playing festivals, theatres, and unique venues, be sure to catch Felicity Urquhart and Josh Cunningham (of The Waifs) live on their ‘Birdsong’ Tour.
A careful selection of boutique venues will ensure an intimate experience as the pair continue to carve out a distinctive place in the Australian music landscape with their unique blend of songs, sounds and story. Masterful songwriting and musicianship across a wide range of instruments and styles never fails to captivate audiences wherever they play. Rooted in the Blues, Country, and Folk traditions, their music is subtle and arresting, weighty and spacious, and always delivered with compelling honesty.
Their new album Birdsong (releasing 29 Sept.) is a 10-track celebration about conquering the cage and finding your voice. In the tradition of Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, the pair soar like birds on a wing and their song is glorious. Venturing beyond the minimal, intimate acoustic stylings of their debut album (The Song Club), Birdsong adds more meat on the bone. Electric guitars can be heard throughout, along with an eclectic array of obscure, small stringed instruments. Award winning Matt Fell lends his considerable talents to the project, proving a perfect choice as co-producer and musician.
Felicity and Josh have created a sacred place in the hearts of many who cross their path with their candid and charming music and storytelling.
