Last here in Australia for the 2015 Vivid Festival and a sold-out appearance at Melbourne’s iconic Hamer Hall, Callahan returns in 2017 for four more Vivid appearances, this time appearing in the more intimate surrounds of the Sydney Opera House Drama Theatre.
The intimate format – a stark contract to the grandeur of the 2015 visit – will feature a two piece setup with Callahan being joined by guitarist Matt Kinsey.
“The guitar solos that Matt Kinsey enticed out of his Gibson on songs like ‘America!’, ‘Ride My Arrow’ and others were mesmerising. There were moments of sweet psychedelic beauty that were not over powering but transcendent. Sometimes it felt that Kinsey’s solos were being played from another room, not overly loud, but clearly hypnotic and beautifully imagined.” – Tone Deaf Vivid lives review 2015
