Espie and Thorne

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 15-Apr-2016


special singer-songwriter double-header of Suzannah Espie and Lucie Thorne will grace the stage at Old Church on the Hill on Sunday, April 17.

The show will kick off at 4pm, with support from local maestro Albert Skipper (aka Skip).

Espie said she couldn’t wait to check out the Old Church.

“I have played in so many places, I would say the most important thing about a venue is the people,” she said.

“And it’s got to sound good. Churches often have such amazing acoustics.”

The Old Church should be the perfect venue to hear songs off Espie’s critically acclaimed, self-produced album Mother’s Not Feeling Herself Today.

Nominated for The Age Victorian Music Awards Best Folk/Roots Album 2015, the record mines the soulful and personal side of folk and country music.

This is not the first time Espie has teamed up with Thorne for a tour.

“We’ve done quite a bit of time on the road together, playing in all sorts of places,” Espie said.

“It’s something I always do with people I have the utmost respect and admiration for, Lucie is no exception.

“We are very different performers and songwriters and I am continuously inspired by her performances.”

Lauded for writing some of the most simple and beautiful songs you will hear, Thorne will certainly be a welcome addition to the Old Church family.

Tickets are $18 pre-sale or $20 on the door, concession prices available. Pre-sales are available at
