Vikki Thorn (The Waifs) with Special Guests
6 & 7 March 2018
Vikki Thorn is touring Australia for the very first time in March this year, fronting her own Trio along with Heath Cullen and long term ‘The Waifs’ bassist Ben Franz.
After 25 years of singing and touring as one third of ‘The Waifs’, Vikki Thorn found her own voice deep in the canyons of Utah. Known for her powerful vocals and blues harp playing, she is a dynamic and passionate performer who has sung with Bob Dylan, Levon Helm, Paul Kelly, John Butler and Missy Higgins.
Now with her feet on stone and hands in the dirt, her new collection of songs portrays the humor and heartbreak of life just south of Hell’s Backbone. It’s from this harsh and beautiful landscape that she draws her inspiration. It’s a long way from the fishing camps of Western Australia where she was raised and she sings about them too.
Themes of movement, motherhood and motocross weave through country blues, slightly side stepping away from the folk format of The Waifs to indulge in her passion for old R&B. Her voice can swing and roll or radiate the intimate warmth of the morning’s first cuppa, inviting you to sit at the kitchen table while she sings about life in the wild places.
