The Tasmanian Songbook Project
Thurs 8 July | 8pm | Theatre Royal | All ages | $49
What is our Tasmanian Songbook?
What are the songs that define us? What do songs about Tasmania say about us? What are the stories we tell through song? This year’s Festival of Voices sees the beginning of a special project where we’ll amplify the legacy of Tasmanian songs and songwriters that are a part of our cultural soundscape and history.
Musical Director, Scott Targett, has assembled a stellar line-up of performers to celebrate our ever-evolving Tasmanian songbook. You will hear both familiar and forgotten songs that were part of our lives spanning over five decades, as well as more recent work from our rising stars.
Who is involved?
Scott Targett is the Musical Director for the Tasmanian Songbook Project, which will feature guest singer songwriters including:
and Seth Henderson.
