Rascal of the Week

All it can take is a song. It was on hearing Paul Kelly’s ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’ that convinced Kerryn Fields to move out of a “dodgy haunted house” in New Zealand, sell her Kombi van and buy a one-way ticket to Melbourne.
Since arriving in her new home, she has performed over 300 gigs. She also met Paul Kelly, crossing his path as he was returning from a rehearsal. September saw the release of Rascal, an album recorded over a two-year period in bungalows, bedrooms and studios across Melbourne. She is joined on the album by her band, The Dudettes. You can have a look at the album’s recording process over at the songbird’s website. Martians Café, Deans Marsh – November 13.
