Scott Darlow: Deadly Heart Tour
Sun 16 July at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join us for an unforgettable evening with singer-songwriter Scott Darlow, a proud Aboriginal man from Yorta Yorta country, as he takes the stage to share his heartfelt music and inspiring message. With a career spanning over two decades, Scott Darlow has become a respected figure in Australia’s Indigenous and independent music scene. His talent as a versatile singer-songwriter, guitarist, and didgeridoo player has captivated audiences worldwide, with over 50,000 albums sold and extensive tours across Australia, the UK, Asia, and the USA.
Having released four albums to date, including the critically acclaimed “Sorry,” Scott Darlow continues to make waves in the music industry. His latest single, “Deadly Heart,” featuring Hayley Mary from Jezebels, is just a taste of what’s to come from his upcoming album, set to be released in October. As part of his national tour, Scott is currently embarking on a unique journey, traveling across Australia for four months. Alongside his band, he will perform electrifying rock shows in various venues, while also making stops at schools and prisons to share his music and engage in meaningful conversations. This tour will be documented, focusing on the rich cultural tapestry of the 300 different nations that compose modern-day Australia.
Scott Darlow is not only an accomplished musician but also a passionate Indigenous educator and activist. With a dedication to fostering racial tolerance, understanding, and empathy, he regularly speaks at over 100 schools globally each year, spreading his message of “FLUTE” (Forgiveness, Love, Understanding, Tolerance, and Empathy). His work has resonated so deeply that his key word has been adopted by schools and businesses, influencing curriculums and charters across the country. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to experience the powerful music and uplifting message of Scott Darlow, a true cultural ambassador.
