Paul Kelly’s Merri Sessions

In December 2014, treasured songman Paul Kelly released his lazy 20th album The Merri Soul Sessions, enlisting the likes of Clairy Browne, Vika and Linda Bull, Dan Sultan and Kira Puru. Paul and his crew have been having a blast taking this show around the country, so Ballarat is in for a real treat. Hitting the Taronga Zoo early in February, the Newcastle Herald wrote: “The Merri Soul Sessions tour is further proof this living legend is still setting his own musical agenda. And Australians, the world really, are the winners. This intimate show was like a throwback to the early days of rock’n’roll when artists travelled together and played as a revue with a single backing band.” Her Majesty’s Theatre – April 8.
