Kalpowar on Small Halls tour

Central and North Burnett Times - - PULSE -

KALPOWER Hall will host the Fes­ti­val of Small Halls’ Spring Tour on Satur­day, Novem­ber 17.

Vis­it­ing artists will in­clude Madi­son Vi­o­let from Canada and Aus­tralia’s Harry Jaka­marra.

When you hear Bren­ley and Lisa of Madi­son Vi­o­let, the first thing you will no­tice is their voices blend to­gether, sym­bi­ot­i­cally, like fam­ily: born to sing the same songs.

And over the past 18 years, the pair has take to genre-bend­ing, mov­ing ef­fort­lessly from folk to pop to elec­tronic to Amer­i­cana.

In a word, they are mu­si­cal chameleons.

Mean­while, Harry Jaka­marra has a voice that stops lis­ten­ers dead in their tracks.

He has a punchy, Spring­steen-es­que growl that’s im­bued with the rugged tex­ture of the West Aus­tralian desert where he grew up.

Harry tours in a vegie oilpow­ered fire en­gine he con­verted to a house.

He will be joined on stage by his younger brother, El­wood Gray, who is an ac­com­plished and road-worn song-crafts­man who pos­sesses a depth to his play­ing well be­yond his 18 years.
