The daughter of a poet father and a music-loving mother, Lucie Thorne grew up in Northern Tasmania. These days she is living across the waters. Flipping through her bio, it states how in her younger days she wanted to be Joni Mitchell. Years later, in a review of her 2011 album Black Across the Field, Readings Monthly compared Thorne to the Canadian songwoman. Her latest release is Bonfires in Silver City, though she did also record an album with Pieta Brown. For several years now Lucie has worked with drummer Hamish Stuart (Dog Trumpet), but until now the duo has never performed at The Bridge in Castlemaine. This changes when the pair set up shop at the venue on August 15. Special guest is Suzannah Espie.
