SUNDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2019
LUCIE THORNE launches KITTY & FRANK
MATINEE SHOW at THE CANDELO TOWN HALL
with special guest Anactoria.
Doors open 3.30pm

Painting landscapes with dream-soaked synths, irresistible beats, poetry and pathos, Lucie Thorne presents her extraordinary new art/pop concept album Kitty & Frank. With Kitty & Frank, Thorne traces the wild true stories of young frontier woman Kitty Walsh and her lover, the charismatic bandit & bushranger Frank Gardiner. In the 1860’s Gold Fever came to Wheogo NSW and like Deadwood, it didn’t end well. Inhabiting a sonic world that calls to mind a meeting of David Bowie’s Blackstar and Kate Bush’s Ariel, via Grimes and Alice Coltrane, Kitty & Frank spans a tale of Shakespearean proportions. All this at the hands of one of Australia’s finest song-poets who has ventured to triumphant new ground with staggering certitude.

Lucie is touring far and wide throughout the spring to celebrate the album’s release – and for the Candelo show she’ll be joined by stellar bandmates Hamish Stuart (drums) Alice Williams (bass & harmonies) and Chris Abrahams (synthesiser).

“Thorne conjures a simple narrative flow that, like a Raymond Carver story, transforms everyday life into high art” (Canberra Times)

Taking the harp way beyond its traditional sound into the richly-layered territory of her contemporary alt-folk / art-pop compositions, Anactoria sets the scene for a compelling vocal performance that holds nothing back. With a full-length album due for release mid-2020, she is blazing with new material on womanhood, motherhood, singledom and being an artist.
