Carus Thompson Plays Paul Kelly

A special homage to one of our greatest songwriters

Doors 5 pm, Band at 6 pm

Duke of George presents

Carus Thompson plays Paul Kelly

One of Fremantle’s favourite singer-songwriter’s Carus Thompson plays a special Paul Kelly show, performing two sets of songs by the iconic Australian artist. 

Described as a “musical treasure in the Australian landscape” (The Dwarf), Thompson has been greatly influenced by the master-songsmith and in his own words “it’s a pleasure to be able to perform these wonderful songs”.

“When I was 21-22 I was playing around Freo in a funk-rock band called Motherfunk. Acoustic-based music was not my focus at all. Then I went to a Paul Kelly concert and it was a light bulb moment! I loved the storytelling, the honesty, and most importantly the Australian-ness. Paul Kelly set me on a path to where I am now, without a doubt."

Thompson will be accompanied for this special show by his brother Christian Thompson on vocals, as well as one of Perth’s finest musicians Nathan Gaunt on electric guitar and vocals. 

Come down and enjoy this of homage to one of our greatest songwriters, whose songs have become an integral part of this country’s soul.
