Details

‘In this concert I’ll be re-visiting songs I started writing when I was in my teens, celebrating organic growth through artistic fusion and showing how music can be a platform of expression that enriches our community.’ William Barton

Melbourne Recital Centre’s 2019 Artist-in-Residence William Barton, Kalkadunga man and one of Australia’s great living artists, performs music and songs with three artists who are dear to him: pianist Paul Grabowsky, violinist Veronique Serret and his mother, the beloved singer Aunty Delmae Barton.

Exploring songs of country, improvisations and artistic fusion, William and his friends showcase music that is lyrical, earthy, soulful and contemporary, elevated by William’s unique gallery of artistry.

Melbourne Recital Centre’s Artist-in-Residence is supported by The Vizard Foundation and Message Consultants Australia.

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
