Great Southern Opening: The Unthanks

Elders of the Noongar Nation launch the ninth Great Southern Festival with a Welcome to Minang Country set against the majestic backdrop of the Ngallak Koort Boodja canvas. You are then invited to view Indigenous paintings inspired by the famous Carrolup School gracing the foyers of the new Albany Entertainment Centre.

The Festival rolls on with The Unthanks. Moving from perfectly executed and haunting Celtic lullabies to inventive covers of The Beatles, The Unthanks have forged a seamless link between traditional folk and contemporary music. Sisters Rachel and Becky harmonise effortlessly, inhabiting sea songs, lullabies and traditional tales, their delicate and enchanting vocals backed by brilliantly arranged piano, violin, cello, drum and bass.
