Nomadic Fish + Caroline Australia + Fusion Boutique Presents ‘Metro Social’ with WALLIS BIRD (Ireland) live in Concert at the 1930’s Metropole Guesthouse.
Sunday 18th Dec 2016, 7pm. Doors Open 6pm.
Irish dynamite Wallis Bird’s expressive vocals and driving guitar rhythms are being compared to artists like Ani DiFranco, Fiona Apple or the young Janis Joplin. Her exceptional voice moves from delicate whispers to explosive power songs, while her music fuses elements of traditional folk music, blues and funk with an energetic handmade rock sound.
Now based in Berlin, in the last 8 years Bird has played over 600 shows in Europe and won two Irish Music Awards. Her refreshingly raw honesty and humour have forged some very strong bonds with audiences worldwide. Anyone who has been to a Wallis Bird concert knows that this is not just entertainment: it’s a way of life.
This is Wallis Bird’s first tour in Australia, launching her new album “HOME”. She will perform at Woodford, Cygnet and Illawarra Folk Festivals. Unmissable.
“Frank and endearingly tender, a tsunami of emotion… Magnificent.” – MOJO, UK
“The Sheer visceral energy of Wallis Bird could kick-start an entire economy.” – Irish Times
“FranIt’s her humour and bold honest that makes Bird so special.” – The Guardian, UK
