Intimate gig shares tales
Singer-songwriter Wil Thomas has ventured from the Kimberley to perform an intimate gig alongside Margaret River’s Dave Mann and Bec Schofield this weekend.
Songs From The Red Dirt, Tales From The South will see the three musicians share one microphone for an “unplugged” performance at Witchcliffe’s Druids Hall on Saturday, from 7pm.
“This is the kind of gig we love to do,” Schofield said.
“It’s about creating an intimate connection with the audience and sharing stories about a love of land, place, family, our travels — that kind of thing.
“And this type of gig is quite different, with the three of us coming together like this.”
Schofield, her husband Mann and their three children spend much of the year travelling in their “house-truck”, complete with French doors and a deck.
During their travels, the family play gigs and festivals and host songwriting workshops throughout the State.
They also regularly visit Broome to collaborate with Thomas.
Over the past three years, Tho- mas said his musical visits to the South West had become more frequent.
“I’m really excited to tell the stories from the Kimberley and stories of the south and to see some new faces — and hopefully familiar ones — too,” Thomas said.
Schofield said the $20 entry fee was by donation.
