GREAT SOUTHERN NIGHTS...
a NSW Government initiative, delivered by Destination NSW in partnership with ARIA, presents... Harry James Angus
Sunday 22nd November | 12pm | $20 + booking fee
Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from the hugely successful band The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical re-invention. His full-time gig with The Cat Empire has had much success. 6 Australian top ten albums and huge chart success all over the world, appearances at every major festival including Glastonbury, Montreal Jazz and TV appearances on Letterman and Jay Leno.
Harry’s solo work is its own unique beast though.It takes the raw intensity, chaos and improvisation that has helped make The Cat Empire such a world-renowned live experience, but redirects it towards a slightly darker, more weirdly beautiful universe. A universe inspired by artists like Nina Simone, Van Morrison and John Coltrane.
Great Southern Nights is a new event to kick-start the recovery of the live music industry – featuring 1,000 COVID-safe gigs across Sydney and Regional NSW, throughout November 2020 (Australian Music Month). Great Southern Nights is a NSW Government initiative, delivered by Destination NSW in partnership with ARIA.
