“A delightful celebration of contemporary, country, jazz, classical & traditional music.”

“Barton is a phenomenal virtuoso, eliciting extraordinary colours and sounds” The Australian “Mark Atkins put the audience in a trance with one of the most sustained performances I have ever heard on that instrument, evoking a time and place long before the political troubles of the 20th century.”

Arts Hub, Australia Tura Artistic Director Tos Mahoney, comments “We are thrilled to be returning to Broome with this enchanting show which is sure to satisfy those with a thirst for fine music across a range of styles.

That these international artists have gathered from the big stages around the world to so enthusiastically perform in Broome and across the Kimberley says a lot about the unique energy and musical connection that is produced on these tours. This means regional audiences not only get to hear these great artists but hear a very special, one off output of their music”.
