Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier are significant and eloquent contributors to Australian music and have been for over 30 years. Conway’s first band Do Re Mi topped the charts; her first solo album achieved platinum sales and earned her an ARIA award. Conway started working with Willy Zygier in 1991; together they have written, recorded and released 9 albums that have all attracted appreciative audiences and critical acclaim from reviewers.

Alongside the core business of writing, recording and performing songs they pioneered the house concert concept in 2004 called Summerware; produced the national concert series called Broad of all female singer/songwriters 2005–2008; Conway was the Artistic Director for the Queensland Music Festival 2009–2011; and they are running the Shir Madness Melbourne Jewish Music Festival as Festival and Artistic Directors in 2015 and 2017.

In 2016, Conway and Zygier’s 1993 5/4 anthem Alive and Brilliant was inducted into the National Film and Sound Archive and the Leaps and Bounds Festival named Conway a Living Legend. Conway and Zygier have just released a new album ‘Everybody’s Begging’ and have been touring the album to sold-out concert halls along the east and west coast.

“Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier have made an album of vibrant, powerful and engagingly arranged folk songs that, yes, draw from religious thought, but are asking the same questions any thinking woman or man asks – just with better tunes.” - Bernard Zuel

Alyce Platt will be opening the show accompanied by her band, the Fish Shop Collective.

Featuring: Clare Moore, Stephen Hadley and Peter Farnan.
