Campfire at the Coracle is a magical event, held outdoors around the campfire and under a full moon.
Featuring songwriters in the round with Matt Joe Gow, Joyce Prescher and Kerryn Fields.
Join us for a night of exquisite storytelling as these truly beautiful musicians bring their own unique brand of Folk, Americana and Alt-Country music around the campfire.
This event takes place on Wurundjeri Country at The Coracle, a safe and inclusive all-ages space that is located at the rear of St Andrews Uniting Church in Fairfield.
Bring a blanket, a cushion or a chair to sit on with a warm welcome to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy during the show. You are welcome to arrive early (6pm doors open) if you wish to watch the fire being lit and get a good spot.
The show will start at 7pm.
KERRYN FIELDS Award-winning songwriter and widely adored live performer, Kerryn Fields offers to the world her new LP, Water - a timeless, fearless, and deeply captivating homage to the full spectrum of human emotion. Drawing comparisons with the likes of timeless creators, Cat Stevens, Townes Van Zandt, Joan Baez, Neil Young, and more, Fields’ trademark warmth of character - evident in both life and music - fuels a creative offering that’s equal parts captivating, refined and heartrendingly insightful.
MATT JOE GOW Matt Joe Gow grew up in the deep south of New Zealand in a town with bad weather and good music: Dunedin. Surrounded by music, he was encouraged to pick up a guitar at an early age. After traveling the world, Matt moved to Melbourne, Australia, drawn by its culture and vibrant music scene. He formed a band, The Dead Leaves, and in 2009 released his debut record The Messenger, produced by multi-Aria award-winner Nash Chambers, and featuring contributions from Jim Moginie of Midnight Oil and iconic Australian country guitarist Bill Chambers.
JOYCE PRESCHER With every song Joyce Prescher is giving you a little glimpse into her soul. With her poetic storytelling, haunting melodies and a voice that really gets under your skin she has mesmerized audiences in Australia as well as the Netherlands ever since she was a little girl. Her music makes you feel like you know her or want to know her and maybe you are in fact a little like her. These songs are made to listen to whilst wrapped in a warm blanket, in front of a fireplace, with a glass of red in your hand.
