Critically acclaimed Australian folk singer-songwriter Lucy Wise has released her second album, When We Wander Far From Home and will perform at Violet Town this Sunday.
When We Wander Far From Home is a collection of Lucy’s songs inspired by her travels as a full-time musician and hopes for the world.
As part of their tour, Lucy Wise and The B’Gollies will be launching the album in the room where the album’s instrument tracks were recorded, this Sunday at 7
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.
Lay of The Land is a song that deals with the ethical issues of pesticide use and the environmental damage caused by some commercial farming practices.
Google Earth explores the modern western addiction to computer technology and simulations of the world, and Darwin to Ambon is about the beauty than can be experienced when travelling slowly, telling the story of a sailing adventure she took from Darwin in the Northern Territory of Australia to Ambon in Maluku, Indonesia.
The B’Gollies include Chris Stone (violin), Holly Downes (double bass) and Graham McLeod (guitar) from ‘‘The String Contingent’’ and Mischa Herman (accordion).
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.
