Georgia Fields has announced her first headline show for 2017 - and it's set to be something very special.
Accompanied only by her string quartet, Fields invites you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking natural acoustics of the Northcote Uniting Church as she presents a rare and intimate performance on Saturday 4 March.
The stripped-back concert will feature brand new ‘strings only’ arrangements of songs spanning her 10-year career – from her 2007 debut EP to 2016’s Astral Debris, which was lauded by The Herald Sun as “her finest, most expansive work yet”.
This is an all ages event. Tickets are $20+bf via Eventbrite, and booking is encouraged as there will be a limited number of tickets available at the door. There is a special concession price of $10+bf for under 16s.
Fans can also expect a few surprise tracks from Fields’ visionary reworking of Bowie’s seminal Ziggy Stardust album, in which she re-orchestrated the entire glam-rock classic for string quartet and voice.
Support comes from Anna Cordell, whose haunting noir-folk hovers in the spaces between light and dark.
Tickets are $20 + bf via Eventbrite, and doors open at 7pm. Known for her immersive, other-worldly performance experiences, this is one Georgia Fields show not to miss.
