Perth Festival | Thirteen Ways to Look at Birds

Paul Kelly, James Ledger, Alice Keath & Seraphim Trio

  • Saturday, 15 Feb 2020 - 7:30PM (Sold Out)

Australian music legend Paul Kelly and Western Australia's leading composer James Ledger are joined on stage by singer-songwriter Alice Keath and Seraphim Trio, with Anna Goldsworthy on piano, Helen Ayres on violin and Tim Nankervis on cello, for an evocative song cycle inspired by birds.

Birds have fascinated poets for centuries, not just for their song and flight but as symbols of hope, freedom, love, communication, peace, luck and migration. What better way to honour them than by sending songs out into the air?

Using the words of John Keats, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson, Judith Wright, Thomas Hardy and others, each of these 13 new songs and soundscapes is its own world – delicate and intimate at times, colossal and soaring at others.
