Tablelands Folk Festival Presents

Miriam Lieberman in Concert: TFF Yungaburra Sessions. Yungaburra Hotel from 7.30 pm Saturday July 22. No cover charge.

Singer songwriter Miriam Lieberman has been busy touring her latest album release ‘Full Circle’ – a work that Rhythms magazine described as “A thing of intoxicating beauty “ (November 2016 issue )

Having spent long periods of time studying with greats in West Africa, Miriam writes and performs mostly on kora (West African harp).

She brings to it her own contemporary Western-ed pop sensibilities and an unmistakable voice.

With songs reminiscent of Joni Mitchell that are infused with rhythms of Africa and songs and stories from the road that lift the spirit.

It is with great pleasure that Tablelands Folk Festival (TFF) brings Miriam back to the Far North for one night only on July 22 as part of the ongoing TFF Yungaburra Sessions.

July Sessions

Amongst the teaching repertoire are West African call and response songs, ancient Hebrew psalms and classical Indian vocal warm ups to name a few.
