Mu­sic with a pur­pose

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat Live will host up­com­ing tal­ent Blue Child Col­lec­tive on Wed­nes­day next week.

Ararat Live’s Rob Shea said the band’s ‘easy-flow­ing, con­scious song craft’ cre­ated mu­sic with a pur­pose.

Multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist Dan White fronts Blue Child Col­lec­tive, which re­leased its third record, ‘Saturn Saw the Sea­side’ in Cor­sica, France, in 2016.

“Since then they have knocked out al­most 300 shows across Europe, New Zealand and Aus­tralia in the past 18 months, bring­ing both full band dance-offs and in­ti­mate duo per­for­mances to a rapidly grow­ing global fol­low­ing,” Mr Shea said.

“Hav­ing sup­ported ma­jor tour­ing acts such as The Cat Em­pire, Sticky Fin­gers, Car­a­vana Sun, OKA, Band Of Fre­quen­cies and many more, the group are no­to­ri­ous for their cross-pol­li­na­tion within and with­out the mu­sic in­dus­try.”

The band’s fourth record, ‘Wake Up To The Sound’ is due this year.

“Blue Child Col­lec­tive is rapidly grow­ing into a ma­jor cat­a­lyst for pos­i­tive change on a global scale as more and more peo­ple join the move­ment and con­trib­ute to the “Cul­ture Of Con­nec­tion,” Mr Shea said.

He said Ararat Live or­gan­is­ers were thrilled to de­liver this year’s line-up, which also in­cludes the re­turn of over­seas star Steve Poltz in March and Cana­dian trio The Good Lovelies in April.

Blue Child Col­lec­tive will per­form in Ararat Ho­tel’s Red Room from 8pm. Door en­try is $20 for adults. Ararat Live is a not for profit small band of friends that have con­tin­ued to bring qual­ity live mu­sic to Ararat since Oc­to­ber 2010.
