Acoustic music lovers from across the district are welcome to come and celebrate the band’s new music and the beautiful, homely space that is The Parish.
Lucy Wise’s song writing is steeped in the Appalachian and Celtic folk music traditions that surrounded her growing up in ‘‘The Wise Family Band’’.
Having toured her debut self-titled album to packed festival marquees and venues in Australia and New Zealand in 2011, her music has received rave reviews in Sound on Sound Magazine (UK) and has been featured on ABC Radio National.
The songs in Lucy’s second album are about characters and places she has encountered in her travels, and the different sense of place people experience in a rapidly changing world.

Three tracks of the album feature guest percussionist Leon Tussie.
Lucy and the B’Gollies have arranged these new songs collaboratively with a chamber music aesthetic, each instrument playing an equal role in the storytelling process.
The band brings to life the characters of near and faraway places, the new material traversing the landscapes of memory, travel, and human relationships to place.
