Join Lucy Wise for a concert of folk songs about love and human relationships to place. The afternoon will begin with a talk about the garden from local urban farmer, Emily Connors.

Lucy Wise has delighted audiences across Australia, New Zealand and the UK with her masterful storytelling, intricate ukulele and guitar playing and soulful voice. Drawing inspiration from her background in Appalachian and Celtic folk music, as well as legendary songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, Lucy’s songs sketch universally recognizable stories that are grounded in the realities of everyday experience. Her musical clarity and down-to-earth performance style captures the hearts of audiences wherever she goes. Since returning from her touring in the US and UK last winter, Lucy has been writing songs for her third album.

“Wise is a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings.” (The Brag, Sydney).

Joe’s Market Garden is Melbourne’s last surviving inner city market garden, and has become an important community meeting place in the last two years with their weekly farmgate sales. Located in Coburg, 2kms north of CERES along the Merri Creek bike path, this two acre plot has been farmed continuously by Chinese and Italian gardeners for over 150 years. Custodian of the farm, Emily Connors, will be giving a 20 minute talk about the garden to start the concert.

2pm for 2:30pm start

Tea, coffee and cakes will be provided.

Tickets: $30 ($25 of the ticket goes to the artist, $5 of the ticket goes towards supporting the farm).
