One of Australia’s most unique musical talents, Miriam Lieberman, continues her album launch tour with shows at the 2017 Blue Mountains Folk Festival.
The launch concert is set to enchant audiences. Lieberman plays with her trio – violinist Lara Goodridge (FourPlay/Baby et Lulu) and cellist Kate Adams who add sublime string arrangements and lush vocal harmonies. They are joined by special guests Hamish Stuart on drums and Mark Harris on bass.
With Full Circle Lieberman and her trio have seamlessly fused the lilting harmonies of the kora – a 21-stringed West African Harp – with classical strings and a western folk/pop sensibility. Lieberman’s rich, soulful voice takes her audience through an exploration of love, feminism and the different shades of human experience.
The result is a beautiful, exotic musical journey from Sydney’s seascapes to the bustling streets of Mali and beyond.
The talented song-writer’s last album, Birds of the Moon, was critically acclaimed both in Australia and overseas, receiving radio play on Radio National and Triple J and becoming a finalist in the Australian Independent Music Awards.
The trio has toured extensively at major festivals and events around Australia including Woodford Folk Festival, The National Folk Festival, and Global Rhythms.
The new album also features Josh Shuberth in the dual role of producer and multi-instrumentalist.Shuberth has performed with or produced Josh Pyke, Alex Lloyd and Tim Freedman.

“Something of a renaissance woman… Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” – Sydney City News
