A Quartet & Country Marathon at Perth Festival 2020

Published On: Fri 01 November



What does Beethoven have to do with William Barton, Dr Lou Bennett, Stephen Pigram and Roma Winmar?

We are SO excited to be undertaking a marathon four concerts over two days at Perth Festival 2020, performing the entire suite of Beethoven’s Opus 18 string quartets, matched with the traditional songlines of this country through the spellbinding music of singer Dr Lou Bennett AM, didgeridoo master William Barton, Broome music icon Stephen Pigram and Noongar elder Roma ‘Yibiyung’ Winmar.
