Glenn Skuthorpe on Tour to Mornington Peninsula

The Pig & Whistle, Main Ridge

With six highly-regarded albums and music featured in films (The Emu Runner and John Pilger’s Utopia), Nhunggabarra, Kooma man and international touring singer-songwriter, Glenn Skuthorpe, is a powerful lyricist and composer who gives voice to those whose stories must be heard. Glenn will be playing live with his full band at The Pig & Whistle in Main Ridge September 16, 7:30pm.

A compelling performer, Glenn’s playing style is captivating. Engaging audiences with the stories behind his journeys. Glenn has performed on stages big and small and alongside legends including Buffy Sainte-Marie, Steve Earle, Tex Perkins, Kev Carmody, Archie Roach, Rory McLeod, Michelle Shocked, Buddy Miller and Mary Gauthier. To name a few!

Glenn Skuthorpe’s music is like an out-of-heart experience, a sad-gentle wind that lifts you up, allows you to soar, to coast, to feel the power of the truth carry you along with honest lyrics and heavenly licks – knowing that when you return to your heart: everything will be different.’ – Peter Docker, Author (AUS)

With his seventh album on the way and a string of highly successful tours (Port Fairy Folk Fest, Adelaide Fringe, Byron Bay Blues Fest, Woodford, Broome Saltwater Festival, Cygnet, Calgary and Edmonton Folk Festivals), prepare for an infusion of genres with vibes of urban street blues, open plains and wide open skies.

Rambling man, Grim Fawkner, will be opening this wonderful story-telling evening. He is no stranger to stages and streets across the entire globe – so we Mornington Peninsula folks are pretty lucky to have him down here. We are ready to soak in all of his sweet and husky tones! The epitome of the itinerant musician, Grim draws together tales and musings from his travels and is as likely to deliver them in soft ballad form as he is face-meltingly intricate and upbeat roots/country/blues.

“Always an enjoyable, upbeat performer, recounting tales of his latest musical trips around the country with great humour” – BEAT Magazine.

These guys will blow your mind. Think rustic blues and roots, story-telling and country vibes.

Both artists are available for online and in-person interviews in the lead up to this event.
