Lucie Thorne - Bonfires In Silver City

This Sunday 4 September will see the wonderful Lucie Thorne joined by The Ellis Collective for the launch of her new album ‘Bonfires in Silver City’ at Corroboree Park Hall in Ainslie.

Fresh off another stretch of touring with performances dotting the globe, Lucie’s new offerings will find a happy home in the cosy and intimate, inner-north setting. The Canberra Musician’s Club will be providing a bar service on the evening, raising funds for a noble local cause..

Doors open at 7:30 – $20/$15.

Lucie’s album was ABC Radio National’s album of the week and has left a swathe of fond reviews in its wake…

“Bonfires In Silver City reveals a subtlety and craft that eclipses Thorne’s prior work.”
— Martin Jones, Rhythms Magazine, August 2011

“I’ve been listening to three great female artists in the last month; the first two, Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris require little introduction to most, their bodies of work substantial, their standing already verging on legendary. The third is a name lesser known, but her album Bonfires in Silver City is undoubtedly the best of all three. Lucie Thorne is one of our own, and with this album she makes a firm statement that she is one of our finest. World-class.”
— Chris Peken, Alternative Music Group

“Mitchell fans will sense a resonance of 1976’s Hejira, for many her masterpiece, in Bonfires In Silver City…. the records are strikingly similar; poetic, introspective works that have a solidity and wholeness.”
— Ian Cuthbertson, The Australian, August 2011
