Songs are magical things: some fall suddenly from the ether, others are a slow labour of love. All songwriters say it. Everyone has heard it.
Universally, they’re inspired from personal experiences and observations of life and human nature. In reverence of such alchemy, Delsinki presents “Sing a Song of Sixpence” – which brings the tradition of a writer’s round to audiences. Artists share the bare bones of their songs and the stories behind them. In an intimate and informal setting, it becomes poignant , and unpredictable. Audiences get an insight into the process and the magic, and feel closer to the songs as a result. A unique and entertaining heartfelt experience, Sing a Song of Sixpence is a series of concerts presented across many of Victoria’s iconic regional towns featuring an incredible line-up of artists & musicians.
