Tablelands Folk Festival is very excited to present Miriam Lieberman in
Concert for the April Yungaburra Sessions.
Miriam Lieberman’s music seamlessly blends African influences with blues
and folk infused melodies. Her songs are a collection of stories
beautifully told through strings, powerful lyrics and her unmistakable
voice. She accompanies her music on kora- ( 21-stringed West African
harp as well as acoustic guitar.
Miriam released her new album *Birds of the Moon *in August 2014. Since
that time she has toured the album around Australia. Birds of the Moon was
made album of the week on ABC Radio National and it has so far been awarded
four star reviews in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Weekend
Australian as well as an Aria nomination. With the lilting rhythms West
Africa the album travels in mood from the sinister beauty of the Indian
city of Varanasi, to a Mexican love story to the bright hope of dawn.

themes. Simply brilliant!” 4 and a half stars – Jeff Glorfeld – THE AGE*
