Lloyd Spiegel

Acoustic Blues trailblazer Lloyd Spiegel is back at Burrinja by popular demand!

After completing a massive tour for the 2019 album ‘Cut and Run’ Lloyd is back for more in 2020.
From the fiery boogie opener ‘Any Second Now’, through to the dark acoustic closing of ‘Old Wounds’, Cut and Run takes the listener on a trip from honest acoustic ballads to searing Blues Rock and captures Spiegel at his best as a vocalist and guitarist while providing some of his best lyrical work to date. 
The new album, along with This Time Tomorrow (2017) and last year’s Backroads concludes a trilogy of albums and represents the fruits of an intensely creative time for the Melbourne-based bluesman. 
Says Spiegel, “the last three years I’ve written one album while touring the previous so it’s a natural progression that each group of songs is a response to the last. Cut and Run has a positivity and clarity in it that for me, resolves a great deal of the questions I asked myself on the last two albums. It’s definitely the end of a chapter for me both musically and personally.”

Groovy lead track ‘Track Her Down’ has received extensive airplay on ABC, Double J and community stations nationally, hitting number 2 on the AMRAP regional chart and set up a buzz for the new album’s arrival, and Lloyd recently score three Australian Blues ‘Chain’ Awards for the release.

A Cabaret Star for Hire

A recently retired showgirl discovering her new life’s purpose ... become a secret agent and uncover a global plot. 

After 10 years of writing, performing and touring internationally, Australia’s “Cabaret Queen” is quitting cabaret. Cabaret Star For Hire is part performance-art, part Aussie opera, part physical and musical comedy extravaganza with all-original songs and hysterical musings of an artist on the brink of superstardom, or mental breakdown, or both. Anya Anastasia’s brand new one woman show highlights her bizarre and riotous CV as she publicly seeks new employment. Tired of the razzle-dazzle insta-glam “look at me I’m nailing it” showbiz lie, she has crafted this brazen showcase of one woman’s failures - admitting to everything that she’s messed up or covered up in pursuit of her dreams, and the result is hilarious. Adelaide Fringe 2019 - Winner of the Best Comedy Cabaret (The Sunday Mail)

Archie Roach: Tell Me Why 

A new work sharing stories and songs from Archie's new memoir and companion album. 

Not many have lived as many lives – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.  He is Archie Roach.  His new memoir Tell Me Why (Simon and Schuster) is an intimate, moving and often confronting account of his resilience and strength of spirit, and also of a great love story. It’s an extraordinary odyssey of love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and the healing power of music.  The companion album Tell Me Why (Bloodlines), considered Roach’s 18 song ‘magnum opus’, re-imagines eleven songs which have defined his extraordinary career. Roach voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his path through these songs to become the legendary singer-songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.

Kate Ceberano & Paul Grabowsky | Tryst

Following the enormous success of the Love Songs tour in 2016, Australian music greats Kate Ceberano and Paul Grabowsky are set to tour the country once again in celebration of their debut album Tryst. Tryst is a very personal journey into words and music by two of Australia’s most respected musicians reinterpreting of some of the great love songs of our time. Kate and Paul deliver achingly, soulful renditions of songs that connect on a deep emotional level and have influenced both of them at some point in their lives. The repertoire will be as diverse as love itself - from 60s pop with Cilla Black, to 80s Aussie rock with the Divinyls, and flirtations into jazz and chanson along the way.

I Have A Face

An honest and hilarious discussion of mental health with a theatrical twist.

Ever wondered if you’re doing it right? Well did you read the label? Life didn’t come with a label, but you will be told your whole life how you should behave or who you should be. You will be told that if you have a problem, there’s a quick fix you can buy… but somehow the problem doesn’t ever seem to really go away. Jude Perl’s insight into her personal and relatable mental health struggles of being an adult, will make you want to sing along, cry and laugh all at once. Sometimes labels are super useful, particularly when you’re washing your fave jumper. But at other times, labels can halt your growth and supress you’re very existence. Jude reminds us when to be aware of these labels, and when the labels are totally useless – and most importantly, that we are not alone. She’ll talk about some tough stuff, make you laugh and make you feel truly human.

Warnings: Contains occasional course language, mild sexual references, very mild drug references, and themes relating to mental health (anxiety/depression)

Recommended for ages 15+
