Missed out on tickets to SITG? Or just can’t be bothered to battle the 18 hour drive up to Byron Bay? What ever your reason may be for missing the festival, you can still get a slice of the SITG action sans tent pegs, gumboots and over-priced beer.
Melbourne's own Liz Stringer epitomises dedication. She's managed to balance prolific touring with the quiet release of three solo albums in the last few years. She's about to hit number four with Warm in the Darkness, which promises to be a little less quiet – she's touring with an expanded band including a new addition in the form of guitarist Van Walker, who's got a pretty solid solo career of his own. You'll have plenty of opportunities to catch Stringer's brand of gorgeously understated folk in the coming months, including a bunch of free shows all round town. Check out her website for all the details.
