Tiffany Eckhardt to bring album launch tour to COPACC
Published on 13 September 2018
Beloved western district singer songwriter Tiffany Eckhardt is returning home to launch her new album Found.
Tiffany will join her partner Dave Steel and their band to perform songs off her new album in a heart-warming homecoming concert of stories and songs at COAPCC on Thursday 29 November.
Joining them onstage will be Sandy Brady on bass, and Matiss Schubert on violin and mandolin.
Tiffany, an award winning songwriter behind nine successful independent releases, said she looked forward to being back on familiar ground.
Tiff and Dave lived in Winchelsea for 15 years before packing their bags in 2014 and moving to a small farm in the Huon Valley.
Tiffany’s new album Found was inspired by her move to southern Tasmania.
“It’s a very beautiful part of the world and I can now say I feel very blessed to live here, though for the first couple of years, I was very homesick,’ Tiff said.
“The songs on Found are about this journey of change, some sadness but a lot of joy too, a reflection and celebration of finding ourselves and our feet in this new land.
“My songs are greatly influenced by love of the natural environment, my interest in the human spirit, my family and also my furry and feathered animal friends (of which we have many!).”
COPACC Manager Tamzin McLennan said Tiff and Dave were valued friends of COPACC and it was a special opportunity to be part of the Found album launch.
Ms McLennan said Tiffany had been adopted as a firm favourite by the folk/roots festival scene in Australia.
“The first time I heard Tiff sing, she had the entire room mesmerised. It felt like nobody moved and nobody breathed until the final note was sung.
“Her performance was heartfelt and raw, and I anticipate that the honesty and presence that people love about Tiff will be strongly felt when she comes home to do her album launch at COPACC.”
Tiffany Eckhart, together with Dave Steel and their band will perform Found in the COPACC auditorium on Thursday, 29 November at 7.30 pm. Tickets are $27 or $23 concession. Groups of four or more get a 10 per cent discount. Tickets are available from www.copacc.com.au
