In reverence of such alchemy, Delsinki, the Melbourne singer-songwriter-multi instrumentalist and man behind the much-loved “Keep The Circle Unbroken” series of shows inspired by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Bandas iconic “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” album, presents “Sing a Song of Sixpence – The Winter Tour”.
Taking its name from one of those songs – indeed a nursery rhyme – which remains a delicious mystery, “Sing a Song of Sixpence” aims to give audiences an insight into the alchemy by giving them an experience of songwriters ‘in the round’.
An age-old tradition – perhaps most famously rendered these days at Nashville as iconic Bluebird Cafe – a writers a round presents a number of songwriters together on stage, taking turns. In an intimate and informal setting, they also interact, teasing more insight from each other. “Sing a Song of Sixpence” adds a unique instrumentalist or two to the proceedings, to help tease out more insight and to shine new lights and nuance on to the songs. A poignant and unpredictable experience, it enables artists to learn more about each other – and themselves – and it gives audiences rare insight and access into the creative processes. And the magic.
Beginning in 2020, and of course, interrupted by Covid, “Sing a Song of Sixpence” has already featured performances from a wide range of artists and instrumentalists, including Mick Thomas, Bachelor Girl, Penny Ikenger, Jack Howard, the Weeping Willows, Brooke Taylor, Keeʼahn, Freya Josephine Hollick and Ruby Gill.
A unique and entertaining heartfelt experience, “Sing a Song of Sixpence” is now set to present a series of concerts presented across many of Victoria’s iconic regional towns featuring an incredible line-up of artists & musicians.
