Event Information

The Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music, Rory Ellis and Arts Upper Hunter have joined forces to bring you a concert of magical music. 

Rory Ellis, with his unforgettably deep, soulful, gravelly voice mixed with a swag of blues will delight audiences. He’s been likened to Leonard Cohen, Springsteen and Tom Waits in the UK, Waylon Jennings here in Australia, and in Germany, they said he could be their next Bob Dylan.

The Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music with be playing Motown. 
Andrew French Northan, Director of the Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music, said you can experience some of the of the greatest pop music ever written. It’s sort of interesting that Detroit came up with this extraordinary array of music. Following World War 2 and post industrialisation there was this mass migration to the huge factories, and some of the most incredible musicians in America ended up in one place at one time in that bizarre little room called the Snakepit. Magical music generated in this small little room.  Think bands like The Jackson 5, Diana Ross and The Supremes,  Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and The Commodores.
