Revolution: A Night of Protest Songs

Fri 16 Aug

Award-winning Australian blues man Frank Sultana has been releasing his original music since 2011.

In January 2023, in Memphis Tennessee, Sultana competed in and won the prestigious International Blues Challenge, becoming only the 3rd person outside of North America to do so in the events 39-year history.

Original blues, however, is not what brings him to The Music Lounge this time.

Accompanied by partner Madison Willcocks, he will be performing Revolution A Night of Protest Songs, on Friday 16 August.

With songs from the 1960s , 70s and 80s by artists like Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, John Prine, the Byrds, John Lennon and Peter Gabriel amongst others, this is a reverent tribute to not only the artists and the songs, but the turbulent times and social upheaval that inspired them.

As Frank says, “When these songs were written, they cast a light onto important issues and helped shape the consciousness of a generation. In some ways they changed the world, but also we see a lot of the same issues in 2024 that we saw in 1964, and that parallel is what gives these songs poignancy today.”

We’re committed to delivering safe & enjoyable performing arts experiences.
