Australia’s Visionary Songstress Wendy Rule returns to Melbourne from her hometown of Santa Fe, New Mexico to celebrate the launch of her new double-album “Persephone”. The culmination of over twelve years work, this exciting new project is a beautifully evocative retelling of the Ancient Greek myth of the Goddess Persephone’s descent into the Underworld, and the ensuing grief of her mother Demeter, the Goddess of the Grain.
Wendy and friends will be recreating the album live in its entirety. Singing in the roles of the Goddesses Persephone, Demeter and Hecate (with Hecate’s parts chanted in Greek!), Wendy will be joined on stage by her band (Elissa Goodrich on Vibraphone, Marimba and Percussion, Rachel Samuel on Cello, Timothy Van Diest on synth and guitar), and accompanied by a ‘Greek Chorus’ of three singers who feature on the album – Melbourne locals Melody Moon and Talie Helene, and Greek songstress Callie Galati, who is flying in all the way from Athens to perform at the launch.
This very special event is a night not to be missed!
