Kutcha will play two shows in the region on Wednesday 19 October at the Brunswick Picture House and Thursday 20 October at the Star Court Theatre, Lismore.

Proud Mutti Mutti songman Kutcha Edwards will bring focus back to his significant and wonderfully acclaimed album Circling Time when he travels to regional NSW on tour with his band in October.

The tour comes on the back of the unimaginably beautiful Circling Time Songs and Stories production Kutcha presented across regional Victoria, where he played to sold-out rooms, standing ovations, tears, and laughter.

He is a respected elder, so a Kutcha live experience takes you on a journey with stories from his life that segue so eloquently into each song choice lifting your spirit and inducing goosebumps moments.

At the heart of it Kutcha’s music is pure soul.

Kutcha is a strong advocate for Aboriginal people, and is dedicated to the continuum of his traditional Songline.

Kutcha has been prolifically combining songwriting and activism since 1991. It is his experiences as a survivor of the Stolen Generations that have shaped his diverse creative output in groups like Blackfire and The Black Arm Band. At the same time, he’s been able to forge a successful solo career combining his Bidgee blues with traditional songs of people and country.

Kutcha is now multi-award-winning singer/songwriter and his most recent album Circling Time has garnered critical acclaim. He tells us that music chose him. He uses music to create connections across cultures, generations, and spaces. He draws on a profound sense of all those who have gone before him on this land, along with his own life experiences, to help his audiences understand themselves, reconnect with their culture, and promote cultural understanding. His music touches the soul and through his humour and insights we realise that, with recognition of the true Aboriginal history, there can be hope of reconciliation.

Kutcha will play two shows in the region on Wednesday 19 October at the Brunswick Picture House and Thursday 20 October at the Star Court Theatre, Lismore. For more visit: brunswickpicturehouse.com and starcourt20.sales.ticketsearch.com.
