Celebrate Carole King’s Tapestry with Vika Bull and Debra Byrne

Posted on 2 August 2017

 

The seminal work of singer-songwriter Carole King will be celebrated at Kernot Hall, Morwell on Saturday 19 August at 8pm, when Australian icons Vika Bull and Debra Byrne pay homage to the 1971 classic Tapestry. The album is one of the greatest selling albums of all time and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998.

Latrobe City Council’s performing arts and venues coordinator, Kathleen Roberts, said the songs have a timeless appeal.

“Classic tracks include I Feel The Earth Move, You’ve Got A Friend, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman and Will You Love Me Tomorrow.  The audience will be able to hear our own Australian superstars, Vika Bull and Debra Byrne, offer their interpretations of these songs.

“Local audiences will love the atmosphere as these two icons deliver song after song that resonate with lyric, melody and meaning,” Ms Roberts said.

For Debra, Carole King’s music resonates on a different level. “Her songs have been a life saver, she has spoken to my heart when it has broken and helped me regain my strength through songs such as You’ve Got A Friend.”

For Vika, the show is about reaching a regional audience. “I am just so happy that I get to do something I love and travel to wonderful places and meet wonderful people. I am just in awe of the fact that Carole wrote so many wonderful songs that I still love so much today.”
