Presented by Stroud X NORPA

about the studio sessions

NORPA and Kate Stroud have teamed up to curate a program of intimate live music events in The Studio at Lismore City Hall. Together we’re bringing more live music to Lismore! So gather your friends and join us for great a night out with music, a drink or two and a bite to eat.

about william crighton

Riverina-bred singer songwriter, William Crighton, combines traditional music with experimentation. His live show has been received to high acclaim across the world. From sell out shows to festival highlights at Blues Fest, WOMAD and Woodford Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival & Boomtown.

Authenticity is the element that defines the darkly beautiful and wrenching debut record of William Crighton. For the deep-voiced songwriter and intense live performer, there were no short cuts taken to arrive at this self-titled album. Beneath each track are thousands of kilometres, and within are stories wrought of trees and roads and dust, soaked in the essence of our ancient continent. “I love traveling our Earth and will be forever thankful to her for letting me become such a part of her that I feel as long as I look after her I’m welcome wherever I choose to roam,” Crighton says.

William will be supported by local Lismore artist Zechariah.
