Neil Murray

Keep Rolling On

Supported by Tiny Feet
Presented by Mildura Art Centre.

Maverick songman Neil Murray can't wait to get back on the road.

The founding member of the pioneering Warumpi Band penetrated mainstream Australia with the iconic anthems My Island Home and Blackfella/Whitefella, is 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 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 Tiny Feet.

Tiny Feet are an exceptionally dynamic contemporary music duo featuring Ben Bamborough (guitar, bass, vocals) and Stephanie Rogers (vocals, guitar, melodica, percussion). Their original music and sound is both upbeat and captivating.
