Neil Murray sweeps into the Caravan Club on Friday November 23rd for a rare metropolitan appearance. No doubt there will be dust on his shoes. He will be accompanied by Matt Earl on drums, Andy Fry on bass and Damien Neil on guitar.
Neil Murray was a founding member of the groundbreaking Warumpi Band that during the 1980’s propelled contemporary indigenous music into mainstream Australia, yielding such classic songs as My Island Home, Blackfella Whitefella, and Jailanguru Pakarnu. The only Whitefella in the band, Murray has since become one of Australia’s most respected and influential singer/songwriters and has enjoyed a solo career since 1989, garnering many awards and accolades along the way. In 1995, Neil Murray was awarded the APRA song of the year for ‘My Island Home’ originally written for the Warumpi Band and re-recorded by Christine Anu’. My Island Home has become something of an unofficial anthem and featured in the closing ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
Don’t miss an enthralling evening with one of the country’s finest singer songwriters as he draws deep from his three decade, 10+ album career. Neil’s albums are distributed through ABC Music.
