Dust off your red dress, embrace your inner Kate Bush and sing-a-long to hit after hit, as Kate Finkelstein celebrates 40 years of this musical icon in This Woman’s Work – The Songs of Kate Bush for one-night-only at the Lithuanian Club on Friday 14 September as part of the 2018 Melbourne Fringe.
Following its debut at The Butterfly Club earlier this year, This Woman’s Work – The Songs of Kate Bush is back, bigger and bushier – as self-professed enthusiast, Kate Finkelstein will lead you through of night of musical exuberance in honour of an artist that showed the world what a woman can do with a dream, a piano and a pair of red shoes.
Kate Bush has been described as an enigma; a ‘strange phenomena’ that sent the pop world into a spin. At 19, this singer-songwriter was the first woman to have a self-written number one hit in the UK. Since then, known for pushing boundaries, Bush has become the banshee-like voice of individuality.
With an avalanche of eclectic hit songs, Bush reinvented the rules of pop music and inspired generations of songwriters including the likes of Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Prince, Annie Lennox, Elton John, Regina Spektor, Bjork, Coldplay, Bat For Lashes and Florence and The Machine.
Joined by a full band featuring Australian Rock Royalty, Brett Garsed, Gerry Pantazis, Richard Panaia and Lee Bradshaw, This Woman’s Work embraces the beautiful mystery that is Kate Bush, and includes the hits songs: Wuthering Heights, The Man With The Child In His Eye, Cloudbusting, Running Up That Hill, Love And Anger and many more.
