Deb Morrow is a soulful and evocative singer songwriter; and a proud Wangaaybuwan women, who has been performing since 1991.
Since that time she has performed at numerous festivals including Woodford Folk Festival, Brewarrina’s Strength Through Unity Festival, Apollo Bay Music Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Canberra National Folk Festival, Victor Harbour Folk Festival and Melbourne’s Moomba Festival.
In 2001, she played among other Australian musicians in the Brooklyn, New York BamCafe concert series with Bob Dylan and Bangarra Dance Company.
“Deb Morrow is a unique singer/songwriter with a singular vision and voice and a compelling story,” wrote the Brooklyn Paper’s Adam Stengel at the time.
She has shared the stage with Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter, as well as Christine Anu, Paul Kelly, Yothu Yindi and Ani Di Franco.
Morrow is joined by lap steel guitar player Pete White, whose passion for creatively bringing the instrument to life reflects his imaginative style and somewhat unconventional stand amid musical moments.
The duo performs in an intimate dinner setting at Marracas Boatshed, Iluka on Saturday July 21 from 6pm – before heading west to perform at the Desert Harmony Festival in Tenant Creek, August 3-7, after which they plan to record their debut EP, to be titled Tears on the Fret Board.
Tickets ($80 per person) can be booked at Marraccas or call 6646 6668.
The menu: Char-grilled eggplant, zucchini, vodka poached pear, olives & rocket; free range chicken breast with an apricot & Cointreau sauce, mash & seasonal vegetables, nutmeg & saffron panna cotta.
