Join popular Darwin songbird Crystal Robins, outspoken Indigenous activist June Mills, 17-y-o RnB vocal powerhouse Lotus, busy local rocker Danny Wutang, and Crocodile Country’s “old croc” himself Kevin McCarthy in an intimate interactive songwriting experience.
Darwin’s tropical climate, cultural diversity, isolation, local histories, as well as individual songwriters experiences, combine to give local songs a distinctive “Darwin” sound and feel. Come along and find out how “location” affects this eclectic mix of local songwriters and the songs they write.
Besides individual music performances, this will be an interactive event where the audience and the songwriters themselves can grill each other their songwriting techniques, inspirations, ambitions, obstacles, and in the end, attempt to decide how important “location” is to their work.
