Sun 11 June at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Led by trumpeter and composer Ellen Kirkwood, the UNDERWARDS features some of Sydney’s most exciting, versatile and creative musicians.

The full moon through trees and mist. Towering majestic cliffs above a quiet rural valley. A calm river winding through a rocky landscape. A swim in a tidal ocean pool. A muddy swamp, teeming with life. The effects that being in nature has upon our senses and our minds, and the stories and memories that places hold. This is what Underwards makes music about.

This performance will be part of Underwards’ launch tour for Delve; their characterful and eclectic debut album. It will be a particularly special night, as they will perform a suite of pieces written about Dabee Country, including pieces inspired by Ganguddy and the Capertee Valley. Ellen Kirkwood wrote these pieces in early 2022 following a residency in Kandos, where she learned about the area’s Indigenous heritage from local Dabee custodians Peter Swain and Emma Syme. Dabee Elder Peter Swain will be performing an introductory piece with Ellen at this performance, including a Welcome to Country at the beginning of this performance.

Bar facilities and light refreshments available.
