MARGRET ROADKNIGHT in Acoustic Concert
Hotel Blue, Upstairs “Live At The Attic” Katoomba, Blue Mountains
Thursday 24th September 2015, 6:30pm. Doors Open 6pm.
Margret RoadKnight is Australia’s finest interpretive singer.
A unique and passionate artist, renowned for her powerful vocals and wide-ranging roots-based repertoire with lyrics full of wit and wisdom, Margret RoadKnight survives and thrives outside the mainstream music scene with flair and soul.
Five decades into her career, she continues to tour extensively, singing riveting if under-exposed songs, either a-cappella or with her guitar and African thumb piano, solo or with accompanying musicians, always interspersed with informative and amusing anecdotes (and yes, she still reprises her fondly remembered mid-’70s Australiana hit “Girls In Our Town”).
Margret has recorded ten solo albums and been featured on thirty one others.
She has sung blues, jazz, gospel, folk, comedy, and social commentary songs in concert halls and cathedrals, clubs and campuses, from Broome to Hobart, Beijing to Memphis, Paris to Auckland, Edinburgh to Tel Aviv, New York to Seoul, Amsterdam to Dublin, New Orleans to London, Vancouver to Nuku’alofa.
May 12th, 2013 marked the commencement of Margret RoadKnight’s Golden Jubilee (celebrating 50 years of professional performance) and concluded in April 2014 with her Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Folk Festival.
“…as much as for her impressive voice and choice of songs, RoadKnight is delightful because she sheds so much fresh light on the nature of the world and its people” – Oakland Tribune, San Francisco
“Margret RoadKnight’s success depends on the original way she presents other people’s material. She is alive, warm, charming, extremely funny and a stunning musician” – Melbourne Voice
“…virtually a walking, talking, singing folk festival in her own right – 6ft 4ins of musical history with a South Pacific flavor” – Globe and Mail Canada
“…magnetic and powerful” – Financial Times London
“…a magnificent voice and a vast, and often funny, repertoire” – National Times
“…RoadKnight’s driving, pounding, powerful alto burns smoulderingly” – The Australian
“…RoadKnight’s enduring presence on the folk scene is the result of a truly remarkable voice combined with the most mature and sophisticated sense of humour in the business… a unique Australian talent” – Sydney Morning Herald
“…a vastly underestimated and too seldom seen singer… after all these years she still has the power to knock you back in your seat” – Rhythms
