Dan Sultan x MSO: NAIDOC Week Celebration

This NAIDOC Week, one of Australia’s most loved singer-songwriters, Dan Sultan, joins the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his third studio album, Blackbird.

After headlining the Orchestra’s 2023 performance of One Song: The Music of Archie Roach, Dan will reunite with the MSO on this special anniversary to perform songs from the album and hits from his impressive catalogue.

Billed as ‘the simple journey of a man singing about love, desire and identity’, the album set Sultan’s wide-ranging talent as a songwriter and performer at the fore. It was filled with powerhouse riffs met by crackling gospel interludes, rock and roll and soul jams, pure country tones, and bare, aching ballads and harmonies.

With orchestral arrangements by Alex Turley and conducted by Noongar man Aaron Wyatt, this is a performance ten years in the making.
