Jack Ladder with special guest Peter Bibby
With his deep velvet baritone, Blue Mountains singer-songwriter Jack Ladder is a crooning, late-night raconteur, drawing his listeners close with his fireside-worthy lyrical tales. Dark, whispering and lilting, Ladder’s voice rises over finely crafted guitar melodies to make even sold out venues like Sydney Opera House forecourt and the rambunctious Rockwiz stage feel like an intimate, dimly-lit theatre.
Peter Bibby’s songwriting is unvarnished and disarmingly open, giving a warbling colour and reality to everyday tales of hope and misfortune. His stories feel familiar and local, and include his “classic hits like the one about drinking goon in the park and the one about the falcon” as well as new songs from his upcoming album. Drop in for a set of rowdy tunes, crash-bang emotions and that ripping voice.
Join these two Australian gothic songbirds for an evening of lyricism and tall tales amidst the stately arches and pews of St John’s.
