The Idea of North
Tickets: Adults $40 / Concession $35 / Children under 16 years $20
SUPPORTED BY SOULFOOD
Australia’s longest running and double ARIA award-winning contemporary a cappella group makes it’s way to Hobart this July.
With their beautiful distinct sound and style crossing many musical genres” jazz, folk, gospel, pop, classical, comedy – exactly what you see and hear at a concert is difficult to describe.
With twelve albums in the catalogue, a significant local and international fan base, and increasingly regular local and international work, it would seem that despite the difficulty, people are getting better at describing The Idea of North to their friends. You may have heard and enjoyed the CD’s (some of them award-winning), but the best stuff actually happens live and can’t be recorded onto plastic, no matter how shiny it is.
“A cappella is sometimes thought of as being minimalist, but when you can sing and entertain like The Idea of North, a band would just get in the way…” – James Morrison
Supported by Soulfood, a 50 voice ensemble singing Motown, funk and retro-pop in 5 parts, a cappella.
