A mu­si­cal book­shop

Alpine Observer - - News -

MEL­BOURNE mu­si­cian ‘Bill’ will per­form at the Bright Book­shop on Sun­day.

The Book­shop Tour is a unique 15-date tour of re­gional Vic­to­ria that will see the Mel­bourne-based folk singer-song­writer per­form in some of the states most beau­ti­ful and quirky in­de­pen­dent book­shops.

As a num­ber of towns lack suit­able venues for the per­for­mance and en­joy­ment of con­tem­po­rary orig­i­nal mu­sic, book­shops pre­sented them­selves as the per­fect pop-up venue for an all-ages in­ti­mate show.

Bill re­leased his de­but al­bum ‘Fork­lifts, Girls & Time Alone’ ear­lier this year and will have copies avail­able at all stops.

The young song­writer is as un­adorned as his name, a pur­veyor of hon­esty and sub­stance.

His live per­for­mances strad­dle amuse­ment and heart­break with a fine art, draw­ing in­flu­ence from artists like Neil Young and Leonard Co­hen.

Au­di­ences on The Book­shop Tour can ex­pect a truly en­gag­ing and mem­o­rable per­for­mance.

The tour is pre­sented by Cre­ative Vic­to­ria and will take place on week­ends through­out Novem­ber.

As well was Bright, Bill’s tour will stop at Hor­sham, Hamil­ton, Port Fairy, War­rnam­bool, Beech­worth, Bendigo, Echuca, Al­bury, Kyne­ton, Castle­maine, Trar­al­gon, Queen­scliff and Mel­bourne.

Sun­day’s per­for­mance will take place from 1pm.

IN­TI­MATE: Au­di­ences on The Book­shop Tour can ex­pect a truly en­gag­ing and mem­o­rable per­for­mance from Mel­bourne artist Bill.
