Music can be a great healer. So often we can find comfort in music when all else seems to fail. Next month, Marisa Quigley, Dean Haitani, Talisa Jobe and Skip will join forces to play three very special shows to warm the heart. Marisa Quigley, as well as fronting rhythm ’n’ blues outfit Chubby Rae & the Elevators, has carved out a solid career as a solo performer. Her honours include a ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ gong at the 2007 Australian Blues Music Awards. From the healing team: “If you find your heart is full of mixed emotions then this is definitely for you. Four different artists on stage at the same time going song for song and sharing stories of pain and laughter.” The Old Church on the Hill, Bendigo – August 8; The Bridge, Castlemaine – August 9; and Babushka, Ballarat – August 10.
