Live & Kicking: Meet the Songwriter Sessions – Genni Kane

Fri 29 April at 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Genni Kane has been writing songs and performing them for over 40 years. She first found her feet as a songwriter with the legendary ARIA and multiple Golden Guitar winning 80’s band, Flying Emus. It was during this time that Genni discovered a love of writing in her own voice; writing about what she knew and experienced every day.  Genni has written songs for many projects and artists from Slim Dusty to Bananas in Pyjamas, and many others in between.

Releasing her first solo album at the tender age of 55, Genni unleashed a beautiful and heart-warming collection of songs about the everyday life of a woman of certain age living here in the Central West appropriately titled “Selfies. These were songs which a lot of people could relate to. In 2019 she released her second solo album “Songs from the Kitchen Table” continuing observations on life as she sees it unfolding before her matured eyes.

Both her albums have struck a chord with listeners and critics John Shand from Sydney Morning Herald said of Selfies ““Some singers act when they sing, frightened to expose themselves. Genni Kane builds a road of truth slap bang in the middle of her songs… you feel you get to know her as well, as if perhaps you had shared a couple of bottles of red wine with her.”  Bruce Elder Sydney Morning Herald said of Songs from the Kitchen Table “…Kane has crafted these everyday events into songs of great simplicity and unswerving honesty… The end result has the vocal beauty of Emmylou Harris and the sharp clarity of Loudon Wainwright III. Every track is memorable and moving…”

This will be an intimate performance a woman and her guitar as she walks us through her personal stories of friends, family and the everyday comings & goings of life in a Central West Village. She has graced the stages of many festivals, which over the past two extraordinary years have been silenced. Grab some friends and gather around a table at The Agrestic Grocer for Friday night dinner together with Genni Kane before the Festival stages from all around this sunburnt country come calling for her.

This will be a truly exquisite Meet the Songwriter session of Original Live Music at The Agrestic Grocer. You won’t be able to live stream or download it, you’ve gotta be there to experience it. Book your tickets now.

Arts OutWest is pleased to present in conjunction with The Agrestic Grocer in Orange a series of Live & Kicking Meet the Songwriter sessions featuring the Original music of artists from The Central West. Live & Kicking gigs are supported by the Australian Governments Live Music Australia.
