Performance Time: 7.30PM (duration 100 minutes – includes 30-minute documentary to precede performance and 10-minute interval).

Reviews

Kev is a colossus… He’s powerful and scary and beautiful. Like something you’d see in nature. Like a wave. Or rapids. Big rapids. A thunderstorm… awesome in the truest sense.

Dan Sultan

It’s very nostalgic, his music. It conjures up long forgotten stories and takes you to places that you have heard whispers of and heard stories of but have never really experienced yourself…there’s an ancient wisdom in his songs.
