Venue: River Street Twilight Market

2018 is a big year, which sees Sophie touring Australia wide, staying as grass roots and tangible as possible, with a 6th European tour steadily being booked, combined with the release of 2 new records, and a possible 3rd album set to be recorded.  Thrilled to be headed back to Mackay for a run of shows, including the River Street Twilight Market.

The first part of the year sees Sophie touring in support of the release of new lullaby, ‘Stilts on the Water’.  This is one of her last appearances before she heads off to Europe, on a 6th summer tour.  Thrilling electric violin, world folk at its’ finest, and music at its’ most raw, Sophie weaves through classical, experimental and folk inspirations.  Tailor Birds builds an audience that is as diverse as much as it is one, telling tales about love, loss, hopes, dreams, that anything is possible.  Connecting her people to something good again, in a world that is constantly changing, this is music to inspire, ignite the spirit, and challenge our inner most desires.

With live looping, foley art, electric violin, vocals, and more, come down if you’re in the area, with the market running from 4 – 8pm, with Tailor Birds music from 4pm onwards.
A community market right by the river and under the stars for all to enjoy and meet local producers, value adders, creators and bakers along with many support business operators from the region. Each month on the second Friday, visitors to River Street Twilight Market can experience the soul of the region through fresh local food whilst taking in the surrounds of the beautiful Bluewater Quay and the Mackay City Centre.
