Presentation Night with Paul Kelly & Bob Murphy - July 10

presentation

‘Presentation Night’ is a live talk show that takes football and music as starting points for a discussion about our great obsessions – love, life, how to win the flag and great albums. It’s about learning something new about our heroes, ourselves, and how kicking a ball and writing songs define us.  It all happens live on stage at The Corner Hotel, Richmond.

 

Under the warm glow of the spotlight, PAUL KELLY (legendary singer/songwriter, author, Norwood FC supporter) and BOB MURPHY (legendary Western Bulldog, newspaper columnist, music fan) come together to discuss their mutual love of music and footy at length in ways that are philosophical, funny and surprising. 

Ably guided by music and sport obsessive FRANCIS LEACH (ABC Grandstand Breakfast), Presentation Night will tackle the big issues: what similarities are there between the professional musician and the professional footballer? How do friendships form in footy and in music? Is there any similarity in the discipline of training and in forcing oneself to sit down and write a song? Is there any room for the true maverick in either field any more? Let’s find out about Bob’s favourite albums and Paul’s favourite footballers - and much, much more.

‘Presentation Night’ was born of desire to talk about two much-loved obsessions together in a public forum. In a football and music-loving town where the two pursuits are so often followed with equal passion, it makes perfect sense. To have two greats in their field talk about their love of both capers together gives us a chance to learn something new about them beyond the usual reportage of their endeavors.

Their conversation will last longer than a tweet - and that’s the point. A bit of meandering and a touch of digression will be encouraged.  It’s the equivalent of the slow food movement for Sherrin kickers and string strokers.  It’s a chance to learn something new about the role that footy and music play in our protagonists’ lives, and with a bit of luck, maybe even a bit about how kicking a ball and writing songs can come to define us.
