MU­SI­CIAN Abbe May loves Fre­man­tle so much, she jumped at the chance to re­turn to the port city for this year’s Fre­man­tle Fes­ti­val.

Step­ping away from the usual stand-and-sing per­for­mance, she will be res­ur­rect­ing last year’s hit of­fer­ing The Tonight Show Star­ring Abbe May, in­ter­view­ing and play­ing along­side spe­cial guests in­clud­ing Elli Schoen, Lee Sap­pho, Ti­mothy Nel­son and Steve Gib­son.

May said Fre­man­tle felt like home and she was hon­oured to bring the show back to this year’s fes­ti­val.

“You can ex­pect to hear me per­form with, and in­ter­view, my pick of some of WA's most suc­cess­ful and most in­ter­est­ing mu­si­cians,” she said.

“Each in­ter­view is a chance for the artist to re­veal sides of their per­son­al­i­ties and lives that may not be pos­si­ble to re­veal at their own shows.

“It is all pretty spon­ta­neous and to­tally un­recorded so it is a one-off chance to ex­pe­ri­ence these in­ti­mate per­for­mances and chats with some of WA's finest.”

Fans of her mu­sic will not have to wait too long for her lat­est of­fer­ing, with May ad­mit­ting she was close to fin­ish­ing and re­leas­ing her new al­bum Bitchcraft.

The Tonight Show Star­ring Abbe May is at the Fre­man­tle Town Hall on Oc­to­ber 31 from 8pm.

The Fre­man­tle Fes­ti­val runs from Oc­to­ber 28 to Novem­ber 6.
