Red Dirt – Red Heart is the final instalment by ARIA Hall of Fame Inductee “Russell Morris”, from his Blues & Roots Album Trilogy.
Following on from his critically acclaimed releases “Sharkmouth” & “Van Diemen’s Land”, Red Dirt – Red Heart tells a story of the Australian interior.
The past five years have been an incredible musical journey for both Russell and his fans, fortunate enough to create and release two albums of blues and roots music that pertains to some of the iconic characters, events and moments in our rich tapestry of Australian history.
Every song in this trilogy of Blues albums is a story in itself. Russell Morris has articulated Australian history in a unique collection of recordings that cuts to the very core fabric of our society. While in recent years he has become a musical historian, over the previous 40 years he earned his own place in Australian music history. “Red Dirt Red Heart’ makes you think, makes you learn, makes you listen and if you like, it may even make you dance as well”. Paul Cashmere (The Noise).
The Red Dirt Red Heart is a beautiful album to finish off a fantastic series of albums.
Joining Russell Morris on stage will be special guests The Switch. Falling somewhere between the worlds of blues, folk, blue grass, roots and country music, The Switch share a mutual passion for a beautiful melody, a well turned phrase and an occasional dark turn of mind. Passionate, soulful, haunting, the stunning vocals of Alison St Ledger blend beautifully with the superb artistry of Sallie Campbell and Dave McGuire to lift the heart and stir the soul.
