This extravaganza, spanning 10,000 years and 658 suburbs, featuring a live folk band and a Greek Chorus, is performed by a cast full of Morris dancers (from Sydney of course) and filled with songs penned by Clark Gormley.
Sydney the Folk Musical tells the story of Keira and Billy, polar opposites who travel through this much maligned metropolis, starting at the end of the last ice age, through to the present day.
The show features twelve original songs, which range in style from popular to sea shanty, traditional folk, rap and beyond. Additionally Gormley has adapted several Shape Note hymn tunes from the Sacred Harp tradition, which are sung a cappella by the Greek Chorus.
