Neil Murray

Mildura Art Centre presents
Neil Murray Keep Rolling On

Support Act: Tiny Feet 

Maverick songman Neil Murray is touring nationally in 2021. He is a founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band, which penetrated mainstream Australia with the iconic anthems ‘My Island Home’ and ‘Blackfella/Whitefella’, he is now a respected singer-songwriter, with a string of remarkable albums, the most recent being ‘Blood & Longing’ and ‘Tjungu’ (‘All in one, joined together’) with Sammy Butcher.

His latest single, ‘Keep Rolling On’, celebrates the continuance of First Nations people and their culture in Australia and is an apt title for the resumption of his touring, after being interrupted by the COVID pandemic.
 
Neil Murray’s accolades include the 2017 Port Fairy Folk Festival Artist of the Year, the 1995 APRA Song of the Year award for ‘My Island Home’. The latter, plus ‘Jailanguru Pakarnu’ (‘Out from Jail’ – a 1983 co-write with Sammy Butcher in the Luritja language), have been selected into the National Film and Sound Archive’s ‘Sounds of Australia’.
 
Artists such as Mary Black, Jimmy Little, Missy Higgins, Powderfinger and Liz Stringer have recorded his songs. Always engaging live, Neil Murray’s work has contributed substantially to Australia’s contemporary music heritage. Don’t miss one of Australia’s finest singer songwriters in concert at Mildura Arts Centre.
 
The support act is none other than local pop acoustic duo Tiny Feet, who will kick start the concert with a 45 minute set performing their original songs. It’s going to be a great night of music.
 
With the return to live performance in venues across the state, a few things have changed to make sure we can maintain a COVID safe environment for customers.
 
Due to COVID restrictions, we have reduced capacity in the theatre, and we have measures are in place to ensure the safety of our staff and customers including QR code check in, hand sanitiser stations, and relevant COVID-19 messaging throughout the venue. Masks are recommended but not mandatory.
