VIKKI THORN (THE WAIFS)

March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Vikki Thorn (The Waifs) tours Australia this March for the very first time fronting her own Trio along with Heath Cullen and long term The Waifs bassist Ben Franz.

After 25 years of singing and touring as one third of The Waifs Vikki Thorn found her own voice deep in the canyons of Utah. Known for her powerful vocals and blues harp playing, she is a dynamic & passionate performer who has sung with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Kelly, John Butler and Missy Higgins. Now with her feet on stone and hands in the dirt, her new collection of songs portrays the humour and heartbreak of life just south of Hells Backbone. Its from this harsh and beautiful landscape that she draws her inspiration. Its a long way from the fishing camps of Western Australia where she was raisedand she sings about them too.Themes of movement, motherhood & motocross weave through country blues, slightly side stepping away from the folk format of The Waifs to indulge in her passion for old R&B. Her voice can swing and roll or radiate the intimate warmth of the mornings first cuppa inviting you to sit at the kitchen table while she sings about life in the wild places.
