8:30pm, $18


Independent blues/soul troubadour Shaun Kirk has come a long way since his debut release in 2010, earning him accolades such as “one of the most explosive solo acts Australia has to offer” and “one of the finest blues voices this country has ever heard”. The journey began with his maiden record ‘Cruisin’ being awarded ‘Best Debut Album’ at the 2010 VIC/TAS Blues Music Awards, whilst his second album, ‘Thank You for Giving Me the Blues’ shot to number 1 on the Australian Blues/Roots Airplay Charts in early 2012. Kirk’s third release, ‘The Wick Sessions’; a live in the studio CD/DVD package, climbed as high as #3 on the Amrap AirIt Great Southern Charts. It also charted in the USA, reaching #6 on the Smokestack Lightning Radio Playlist amongst the likes of Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Charlie Musslewhite. Shaun went on to release a five-track EP in late 2013 entitled ‘Giving’. It was Kirk’s second release in the space of 12 months, acting as a teaser for the forthcoming full-length album ‘Steer the Wheel’ which included three live tracks, showcasing his natural ability to engage an audience when he takes to the stage.
