2016 has been a tough year and we’ve lost too many good people along the way. Kelly and Ferg are responding the only way they know how: with music that acknowledges the struggles we all face but celebrates the fact we’ve made it this far.
The Declaration of Interdependence is a conscious recognition that the need for community, connection and mutual support has never been greater—we all need each other more than ever.
Through songs of joy and sadness and all the messy things that make us human, Kelly Brouhaha, Fergus Maximus and some very special friends will help connect the dots between us. Come and join Kelly & Ferg in an intimate evening of masterful pop/soul storytelling.
Back in 2013 and 2014, Clare Bowditch—the Oprah Winfrey of Australian Creatives— welcomed 200-odd ‘sensitive creative types’ to her un-Conference aptly-titled ‘Big Hearted Business’. Left with the advice to ‘band together and make cool shit happen’, Kelly and Ferg have done just that. This show is the culmination of a two years of scheming over cups of tea and dreaming about ways to embrace the big-hearted approach to life and the music business. In that spirit, 10% of proceeds from the show will be donated to Cancer Council SA (because cancer sucks and we are well sick of it).
If you’re unfamiliar with the ‘Songwriters in the Round’ format, Kelly and Ferg will take turns singing songs and telling the stories behind the songs, sometimes solo, sometimes together and sometimes inviting special guests to join in. It is going to be a relaxed and engaging night of captivating voices and genuine musical community.
The Declaration of Interdependence. Because we all need each other.
