Shaun Kirk + Special Guest Chris Gillespie Baroque Room
To celebrate the release, the troubadour will be embarking on a huge twenty-one date tour across Australia & New Zealand to showcase his new tracks in what 2019 Grammy Award Winner for Best Contemporary Blues Record, Fantastic Negrito, describes as “one of the best one man shows he’s ever seen”.
The tour announcement comes off the back of Kirk’s recently disclosed signing with Canadian Artist Agency Paquin following his performances at the East Coast Music Awards back in May, and could be Australasia’s last chance to catch him in the flesh for some time as new overseas prospects appear imminent.

+ Special Guest Chris Gillespie
Chris Gillespie is an independent artist from the Blue Mountains of NSW. His songs are beautiful, bursting with observational yearning. “A fingerpickin’, harmonica playing troubadour… ‘Sydney’s answer to Bob Dylan” (Dave Regos – FBi Radio). Gillespie is renowned by his audience and peers for his song writing craft, especially his lyrics. This music is very Australian, highly original and delivered with refreshing honesty and integrity.
