The Grounds Presents: An Intimate Evening with Jessica Mauboy
WEDNESDAY 23rd OCTOBER
Join us at The Grounds for an intimate experience with Jessica Mauboy, as she shares her new album ‘HILDA’ for the first time…
Pull up a chair in The Garden and nestle in amongst the greenery as Jessica Mauboy presents a glimpse of her soul and culture in her brand new studio album, HILDA. Over two intimate performances, Jessica and her band will be performing a selection of songs from her new album.
With each of the 14 tracks co-written by Jessica, HILDA continues the theme of being an extraordinary photograph of her life and emotions. And at the age of 30, this is without question her most deeply personal work to date.
This is an album of songs about the ‘Little Things’ in our lives – the quiet moments on a ‘Sunday’ afternoon, the private thoughts alone in a taxi cab, the 3am reflections, the little rejections, the disappointments, the small heartbreaks, but ultimately about hope and spirit which amount to the biggest things – who we are.
This studio album shows Jessica in her most naked and raw state, which truly makes this intimate event one not to be missed.
To accompany this powerful performance, The Garden Bar will be open for the purchasing of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks whilst the BBQ will provide a select menu by Executive Head Chef Paul McGrath.
