Bookings: 5232 2077



Just like the sky and waters of the Great Southern Ocean, where Shane Howard was raised and resides, his 13th solo album, Deeper South features songs full of music and poetry that are deep and dark yet illuminated by great shafts of light.

Due for release in late 2014 and featuring new songs written by Howard over the last few years, Deeper South is a musical postcard from the Edge of the World – the unique southern coast of Australia.

See Shane Howard, his full band, and guests at this intimate night of homegrown music.
