The Tailor Birds sound is back in Australia, returning from a 5th European summer tour. 2018 looks set to be 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.
And so after a few minor setbacks including a broken ankle, which saw Sophie having to cancel a few appearances including the St Albans’ folk festival last year, she is now back up and walking again, and able to claim that spot this year.
So come down to hear the Tailor Birds sound, fresh back from Europe, this is music like no other – thrilling electric violin, world folk at its’ finest, and music at its’ most raw, in one of the most beautiful parts of NSW. Travelling from Sydney to Wisemans’ Ferry you cross the Hawkesbury River on the Webb Creek Ferry and meander through the McDonald Valley to historic St Albans on the McDonald River.
Weaving 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 their 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.
The festival runs 27th – 29th April. Say tuned for our playing times.
