Matthew E. White has been relentlessly touring the world the past few months supporting his record “Big Inner”, but it’s his older instrumental project Fight the Big Bull that will be on the marquee of the Sydney Opera House on June 1st and 2nd.

In 2010, Megafaun, Fight the Big Bull, Justin Vernon, and Sharon Van Etten teamed up at Duke University in Durham, NC to create “Sounds of the South.” The collaboration re-imagined selections from four and a half hours of field recordings by ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax also released under the title “Sounds of the South.” The recordings were made during a two month tour in the summer of 1959 that captured “a musical journey from the the Georgia Sea Islands to the Mississippi Delta.”

The collaboration encored the performance in 2011 at MusicNOW festival in Cincinnati, OH.

Megafaun, Fight the Big Bull, Justin Vernon, and Frazey Ford will again bring the music to life, this time at Vivid LIVE, a music festival in Sydney, Australia.

In addition to two performances by “Sounds of the South”, Matthew E. White will perform under his own name in the Joan Sutherland Theatre in the Opera House.
