KATIE NOONAN & KARIN SCHAUPP ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM & NATIONAL TOUR

Katie Noonan and Karin Schaupp have an intuitive musical connection that has developed over the course of the 20 years of their creative relationship. Their collaborations to date have earned them an ARIA Award and widespread praise. Their latest co-creation, Songs of the Southern Skies Volume 2 once again promises to enchant national audiences and is set for release in September.

Together they return to their acclaimed Southern Skies catalogue reinterpreting some of their favourite songs by antipodean artists – this time focusing on some of our finest female artists. Performing a varied program with reimagined arrangements of songs by artists such as Aunty Ruby Hunter, Missy Higgins, Sia, Kate Ceberano, Sarah Blasko and more as well as revisiting some favourites from the first Southern Skies instalment.

Their national album tour commences on October 6 in Parramatta with intimate live performances scheduled throughout November in Canberra, Queensland, Victoria, NSW and Tasmania, concluding in Adelaide on December 7.

Renowned for breaking down genre boundaries, Katie Noonan’s technical mastery and pure voice makes her one of Australia’s most versatile and beloved vocalists. Guitarist Karin Schaupp is an internationally sought-after recitalist and soloist. These two virtuosi combine forces to create a unique sound and a spellbinding performance.

Katie Noonan explains, “Karin and I actually met through our music teacher mothers – my mum Maggie and her mum Isolde, at the Stoliarsky School of Music in the mid 80’s in Brisbane. Although neither of us remember meeting (!), we admired each other’s musical journeys from afar as we both became professional musicians. In December 2004, Richard Tognetti partnered us together for his Huntington Festival and we immediately loved the experience and decided to start collaborating. Playing with Karin is such an exquisite pleasure, but what has been even more special is that we have become close friends and it’s been wonderful to share the experience of being professional working mums together”.
