Katy Moffatt Americana Musician

Sunday 22nd May 2011

Perth Theatre, 20:00

This event was part of the 2011 Festival Programme.

Tickets will be available on the door on the night.

The most memorable American roots music, be it western, country, folk, rock or the blues, is always informed by a simple fact of life:  you live and you learn.  Just ask Katy Moffatt.  Or better yet, listen to her sing, be it a song from her own prolific pen or a choice cut from a favorite songwriter.  It’s clear that Katy sings and writes with the voice of hard-won authority.  As BAM observes, “She doesn’t just hit the notes and get the words right, Moffatt evokes the emotions behind the tunes and meaning between the lines.”

After some 30 years of solo performances from New York to Vancouver, from London to the Blue Mountains of Australia, Katy delivered her first live solo offering. Up Close and Personal, released by Fuel / UMVD Records in 2005, is yet another very special collection of music in answer to an expressed desire of aficionados the world over. Now, with Fewer Things, Katy continues her unique path, cutting through to a place where the honesty, power, and purity of her sound reside and flourish like a wild rose.
