This Sunday Melbourne folk music favourites the Lucy Wise Trio are heading north to Sydney for the launch of their brand new EP A Painting of the Universe.
The EP itself has a pretty interesting genesis.
“It all started early in 2014 when the Lucy Wise Trio were invited to write some music for the 30th birthday of a national schools poetry competition, the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards,” Lucy Wise told Timber and Steel earlier this year. “Lots and lots of schools participate in it and its for kids from age 6 to 18. So what we did was we read through 100 of the past finalists poems, so that got us through the past 10 years of the competition, and then we chose five poems to write songs about. We performed those songs at the awards ceremony last year and because we were so excited by the material and the creative realms it had opened up for us we wanted to record them on a CD of their own, so that’s what this new EP is”
The Lucy Wise Trio will be launching A Painting of the Universe at Django Bar in Sydney this Sunday – check out the official Facebook event here for more information. And check out a stream of A Painting of the Universe below to get excited:
