Since mid-February until the March long weekend, hundreds of Victorian musicians have brought live performances to the streets of Melbourne as part of the iconic busking program, which is part of a $9million initiative that was first announced by the Victorian government last year. The past few weeks alone we’ve witnessed the likes of Kaiit, Hayley Mary, Alice Skye and Fergus James, while upcoming gigs include performances from the Gordi, Emma Donovan and Adrian Eagle. Performance details for these gigs will be revealed the day prior via What’s On Melbourne’s Instagram.

Tomorrow, Uncle Kutcha Edwards will be the latest artist to take to the streets.

The First Nations musical-luminary is an artist who has maintained a vital place in the Australian music industry over his 20+ year career, using music to create connections across cultures, generations, and spaces.

With an innate ability to communicate, he uses his unique, diverse talents to nurture understanding and self-knowledge amongst all those with whom he has contact. Kutcha is a Songman, not simply a songwriter. He draws on a profound sense of all those who have gone before him on this land, along with his own life experiences, to help his audiences understand themselves, reconnect with their culture and promote cultural understanding.

His music touches the soul, bringing unique insights into Indigenous culture and will make this pop-up gig one to remember.

Catch Uncle Kutcha Edwards at the State Library Victoria forecourt at 1pm Thursday, March 3 2022. 

You can see weekly schedules and artist listings for the Busking program via the VDMO website.
