Court Yard Hounds, Julia Deans and Teacups announced to join Sarah McLachlan on “A Taste of Lilith”. Chugg Entertainment, in conjunction with Nettwerk Music Group, Juice TV and The Radio Network, is thrilled to announce that after much media speculation, multi Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter and original founder of Lilith Fair, Sarah McLachlan, is confirmed to visit New Zealand in October with “A Taste of Lilith.”
After a 10 year break, Lilith Fair returned to the United States this year for 23 shows and featured a veritable who’s who of solo artists and female-led bands. Joining Sarah for “A Taste of Lilith” in Auckland are songbirds Court Yard Hounds (Martie Maguire and Emily Robison of Dixie Chicks) and our own Julia Deans and the always fun Teacups.
In June, 2010, Grammy Award–winning singer and songwriter, Sarah McLachlan, released Laws of Illusion, her first studio album of new material in seven years, since the double–platinum Afterglow in 2003, and its twelve songs rank among the most compelling work ever created by this gifted artist. Sarah McLachlan has sold over 40 million records worldwide since her recording career began in 1988 with her debut album Touch and Chugg Entertainment are thrilled to have her bringing “A Taste of Lilith” to Australasia.
Strictly speaking, it’s only a few feet from stage left or stage right to the centre spotlight, but it took Martie Maguire and Emily Robison a couple of decades to move those couple of yards with Court Yard Hounds. As the mainstays of the Dixie Chicks since they formed the group in 1989, the sisters have been familiar faces to many millions of fans. Their debut self titled album was recently released to rave reviews and fans can expect to see this rootsy alter-ego to the Dixie Chicks take shape in their much anticipated debut appearance in New Zealand. Featuring Robison on lead vocals, there will be no shortage of spine-tingling bluegrass tones and harmonies, acoustic ballads, banjo good-times, and some gorgeous guitar-and-fiddle folk songs.
Julia Deans will headline the New Zealand component on the show bringing an exotic New Zealand balance to compliment the international stars. Formerly the voice of Fur Patrol, Julia has fitted into the solo mindset with great ease and confidence, resulting in one of the most moving and inspiring albums to be released this year. Playing with her 3 piece band Julia’s is a performance that lulls you into your favourite dream while still commanding your total undivided attention.
'Teacups' were once a two piece made up of Chelsea Jade and Elizabeth Stokes rattling their bones through quiet sets on street corners and sighing with relief when they survived each song. Just when the two friends were slipping into wintery hibernation (quite literally - on Chelsea's heated carpets), they found a soul in double bass player Talita Setyady. The three combined to perform as a trio and record some of their enlightening work. Teacups will showcase their brilliant exuberance as the opening act on a thrilling evening of song.
“The 2010 Lilith Tour isn’t just a celebration of women in music, but a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres” says co-founder Terry McBride. “We have had many international artists perform on Lilith. It’s now time to spread Lilith internationally starting with one of our favourite places in the world."
For each ticket sold, A Taste of Lilith will donate $1.00 to the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
Artist Fan Club Pre-Sales will open on Monday 30 August, 2010. General public tickets to all shows (excluding Perth) go on sale at 9.00am on Thursday, 2 September, 2010.
Don’t miss the rare chance to see four incredible female talents on the one intimate stage this October.
