 The cold nights at the end of July are the perfect time for cosy, heart-warming, intimate acoustic music.  The Troubadour presents an evening of rich Celtic-Australian Music by Witches Leap, all the way from the Blue Mountains, together with Lisa Richards, a creative and original singer with an enchanting voice, fresh compositions and heaps of talent.

Witches Leap was born out of the kitchen table sessions of County Katoomba.  They take the dark modal sounds of old Ireland, filter them through the hanging swamps of the Blue Mountains and cut them with original convict-noir folk songs of black bushrangers and errant redcoats. The haunting and beautiful music from this trio features the ancient earthy tones of the uilleann pipes, wooden Irish flute and bouzouki, along with acclaimed songwriting from Paddy Connor (Lime and Steel) who make a very welcome return to the Troubadour.  With original tunes springing from the local sandstone and mythology, Irish trad music goes on a journey through the grit of early New South Wales.

Lisa Richards has recently returned to Australia after more than 20 years living and performing in the USA.  She has written and released 6 albums and toured the world. She’s been teaching the art of singing, songwriting and guitar for over 25 years, while continuing to write, record, perform and tour.  Her music draws from the traditions of folk, blues and jazz, adding a beautiful voice with fresh and original songs to produce a sound that’s innovative, fresh and unique.  No wonder she’s received such acclaim:  ‘a tour de force of unflinching and honest writing’ David Costello –  Brisbane Courier Mail 

With extra guest spots from talented local artists, this will be a fabulous night that is guaranteed to warm your hearts and awaken your senses.  Be there early to get the best seats.
