Georgia Fields and String Quartet // with Anna Cordell

  • Northcote Uniting Church 251 High Street Northcote, VIC, 3070 Australia (map)

Melbourne’s favourite chameleon of pop GEORGIA FIELDS is laying herself bare with a rare and intimate performance at the Northcote Uniting Church on Saturday 4 March.

Accompanied only by her string quartet, Fields invites you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking natural acoustics of the chapel as she presents brand new ‘strings only’ arrangements of songs spanning her 10-year career – from her 2007 debut EP to 2016’s Astral Debris, which was lauded by The Herald Sun as “her finest, most expansive work yet”.

Fans can also expect a few surprise tracks from Fields’ visionary reworking of Bowie’s seminal Ziggy Stardust album, in which she re-orchestrated the entire glam-rock classic for string quartet and voice.

Support comes from ANNA CORDELL, whose haunting noir-folk hovers in the spaces between light and dark. Her intricate nylon and electric guitar style and charmingly unaffected vocal delivery have earned her fans across Australia, from Archie Roach to Double J's Caz Tran, who says "this song comes from a patient and knowing heart and will stir a yearning in yours."

Aside from producing her own work, Fields has composed string arrangements for a number of Australian luminaries – from triple j darling Olympia, to ARIA-award-winning vocalist Anthony Callea.

In 2016, Fields composed her first film score for feature-length documentary Winter at Westbeth (dir. Rohan Spong), which screened at Sydney Film Festival, MIFF, ACMI and the prestigious DOC NYC festival. 

This concert will see Fields' inspired string arrangements and searingly charismatic vocal take centre stage. Known for her immersive, other-worldly performance experiences, this is one Georgia Fields show not to miss.
