Interview: Lucie Thorne On Tour

Interview originally published on Overhead Productions

Lucie Thorne is doing one of the things that she does best — touring around Australia, making her way into major centres but also a few places off the beaten track as well.

After two successful runs in Australia in recent times with Pieta Brown, showcasing the Love Over Gold album, Lucie is back on the road solo, albeit with long time collaborator percussionist Hamish Stuart, and teaming up for a double bill in Bacchus Marsh with Liz Stringer.

I should stop mentioning that the locations for doing these interviews are a little weird because I can’t remember the last time I did a straight face to face interview in a studio. For this brief chat, I was located in the salubrious surrounds of the Brisbane City Youth Hostels Association dormitory room, finishing the interview just a tick before house-keeping arrived with the industrial leaf blower, while Lucie was relaxing on a friend’s property in South Australia complete with 3D cattle.

Details of Lucie Thorne’s upcoming gigs:

Wednesday 4th June – Melbourne Folk Club, Bella Union, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 14th June – Baby Black Cafe, Bacchus Marsh, VIC
Wednesday 18th June – Smiths Alternative Bookshop, Canberra, ACT
Thursday 19th June – The Grand Junction Hotel, Maitland, NSW
Friday 20th June – 5 Church Street, Bellingen, NSW
Saturday 21st June – St Martin’s Hall, Mullumbimby, NSW
Thursday 26th June – House Concert, Blue Mountains, NSW
Friday 27th June – House Concert, Kangaroo Valley, NSW
Sunday 29th June – Mudbrick Pavillion, Mallacoota, VIC

It’s an oldie but an absolute fave:
