SEVEN STORIES – PORT FAIRY SPRING MUSIC FESTIVAL

http://ensembleoffspring.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/Seven-Stories-Port-Fairy-website-slider.jpg

Boiling down the world’s vast cauldron of myths, legends and literature, seven archetypal stories emerge: the quest, overcoming darkness, rags to riches, the fatal flaw, the comedy of errors, journey and finally, transformation.

Seven genre-defying artists from across the Australian musical landscape, along with wordsmith Hilary Bell, reflect on our oldest and most intrinsic of tales and weave their re-imaginings into a concert of aural delights. The result is at once visceral, funny and otherworldly.

Seven Stories was premiered to great acclaim at City Recital Hall for Vivid and in 2018 it returns, this time on tour as part of the Port Fairy Spring Festival. So settle in for an experience of fearless song, tall tales and rattling yarns.
