PAUL KELLY PRESENTS THE MERRI SOUL SESSIONS FEAT DAN SULTAN, CLAIRY BROWNE, KIRA PURU AND VIKA & LINDA BULL + RADICAL SON, CHRISTINE SALEM, MIKE ROBERTS' FIRE GARDEN & MORE
It is a rarity to pool all of these talented musicians together for a project, and the end result is impressive.
Speakertv (On 'Paul Kelly Presents The Merri Soul Sessions')



Parramatta’s twilight get-together is back. Headlining the event, Australian music legend Paul Kelly presents his new collaborative project The Merri Soul Sessions, featuring Dan Sultan, Clairy Browne, Kira Puru and Vika & Linda Bull.

This year’s line-up is big on soulful sounds, including Radical Son, Christine Salem, New York City DJ $mall ¢hange, street musicians “Uptown” Brown!, Vintage Quartestra, Hi Tops Brass Band and the Waratah Drumcorps.

Kick back with a bite to eat in Civic Place and join host Tommy Franklin as he welcomes the Stiff Gins, All Our Exes Live in Texas, Fez Hamadcha and Rattlin’ Bones Blackwood to the La Toosh rooftop stage – or explore the neighbourhood to find the funky Soul of Sydney crew at one of their infamous block parties. As the sun sets, encounter the flickering world of Fire Garden, created by artist Mike Roberts, accompanied by a sweeping soundscape by the Spirit of Things Collective.

Family friendly and suitable for all ages. No alcohol, no glass. Food and beverages on sale throughout the event.

Leave the car at home. For detailed public transport information visit transportnsw.info or call 131 500.

All areas are wheelchair accessible.
