Live & Kicking: Folk favourite Genni Kane at Gang Gang Gallery


Sunday 30 October, 4.30pm at Lithgow’s Gang Gang Gallery. Acclaimed folk singer-songwriter Genni Kane will share her favorited original tracks in an intimate gig.

Genni, accompanied by her guitar and the multi-instrumentalist Jon Wilby, will take audiences on a journey through her personal stories of friends, family and the everyday comings and goings of life in her hometown of Millthorpe.

Genni Kane has been writing songs and performing them for over 40 years, first 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.

Genni Released her first solo album at the tender age of 55 entitled Selfies. Her second album didn’t take as long to materialise serving up Songs from the Kitchen Table in 2019.

Both her albums have struck a chord with listeners and critics. Music reviewer John Shand 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.”

Whilst Bruce Elder 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.”

Book tickets from the venue:

Geni will also perform a short set at the opening of Arts OutWest’s While the World Waits exhibition at Platform Arts Hub Blayney on Friday 4 November at 6pm; a full show at the Malachi Gilmore Hall Oberon on Sunday 6 November and in a schedule that includes Montgomery Church and Sarah Humphreys for the reboot of acoustic sunday at Club Millthorpe on 27 November.
