THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Mistletone presents the first Australian tour by consummate American singer-songwriter & guitarist Steve Gunn. Steve Gunn's solo tour brings him to NSC for a soul expanding night of guitar magic.
Steve Gunn’s music has always embraced expanse and movement. It springs from the simple and profound relationship between humans and their environment.
Gunn’s roots in the underground run deep, from his days in GHQ to his collaborations with Black Twig Pickers and Mike Cooper. He’s toured and recorded with Michael Chapman, and released two remarkable duo albums with drummer John Truscinski. His solo ventures, emerging over the past decade and culminating most recently the highly-acclaimed Way Out Weather, have been pastoral, evocative affairs.
Here he embraces his urban surroundings through a series of songs that fully showcase his extraordinary ability to match hooks to deftly constructed melodies. Gunn is a consummate guitarist, that rare fingerpicker who can harness the enigma of the American Primitive vernacular without lazily regurgitating it. His playing is inventive and full of personality. His instrumental virtuosity calls upon a vast library of technical skills at will, but he’s never showy — his riffs and runs are always in the service of the song at hand. And what a pleasure to have this music presented in intimate solo mode on Steve Gunn's first Australian tour.
