Event -

An intimate night of poetry and songs in the round with

Lucy Roleff, Rough River, Anna Cordell and author Rachel power. 

For this special one-off evening, these four Melbourne based female artists will perform songs, collaborate and read their own poetry and the verse they admire in round robin form at the beautiful Bella Union. 

Lucy Roleff combines melancholic harmonies with ethereal arrangements to produce a sound that is both haunting and emotionally captivating. Her vocals are gentle and lush, her guitar and harp playing warm and delicate.

Rough River is the musical project of alternative country and folk artist Kate Skinner; her work quietly aching with tales of love gone by and a yearning for the natural world. Kate's live show lends a certain looseness and grit that underpins folk in the old sense of the word - not as a set of readable signs, but as an act of communion. Rough River releases her second album on February 27th, 2017.

Anna Cordell’s rich folk music straddles that place between light and dark where true human emotion exists, her penchant for the minor key coupled with her intricate nylon guitar playing and haunting, yet powerful voice, make for an enthralling performance. She releases her debut LP August 2017. 

Rachel Power is a writer, editor, poet and artist. She has contributed to many publications, including Mamamia, The Big Issue, Kill Your Darlings and The Age. Rachel is the author of Alison Rehfisch: A Life for Art; The Divided Heart: Art and Motherhood, and Motherhood & Creativity.
