Carus Thompson

Carus plays Paul Kelly | The River

Saturday, 30th March 2024 - 7:00pm to 12:00am


One of WA’s favourite singer-songwriters Carus Thompson is touring 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 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 is accompanied for this special show by his brother Christian Thompson on vocals and bass, as well as one of Perth’s finest musician’s multi-instrumentalists Nathan Gaunt on electric/ acoustic guitar, vocals, piano, mandolin, ukulele and slide guitar.

Head to The River Hotel and enjoy this homage to one of our greatest songwriters, whose songs have become an integral part of this country’s soul.
