Sunday 6th January, 3:30pm. Free entry.

Western Australian singer-songwriter Tracey Barnett has earned a reputation for heartfelt songwriting and exhilarating shows thanks to her distinctive, high-energy brand of blues and roots.

That reputation saw her awarded 'Best Regional Act' at the 2018 West Australian Music Industry Awards.

The multi-instrumentalist mixes experimental flair with traditional rock and country, creating a fusion that's impossible to resist. Packed with emotion, her dynamic sound inspires hopefulness, connectedness and pure, unadulterated fun.

Her songwriting is inspired by a deep sense of connection – with herself, others and the environment. Lyrically, she bounces between reflecting on past experiences and writing of the person she wants to become.

Most of all, she writes with sheer honesty – making for heartfelt music that's exceptionally relatable.

Following two EPs, Barnett's debut album Heart, Soul, Feeling was released in 2017, receiving plenty of airplay across community radio, ABC Radio and Triple J's Roots 'n All program.

From festivals to intimate venues, Barnett's music fills any space with a powerful energy and an uplifting sense of hope. Her thrilling live shows have connected with audiences across her home state, from the Kimberley to the Great Southern, all the way to the east coast of Australia.
