Paul Kelly ★★★★
Making Gravy, Sidney Myer Music Bowl, December 12

After a couple of solo songs to open the show – accompanied by harmonica and acoustic guitar – Paul Kelly ripped into the opening line of Before Too Long with a full band, kicking the packed Sidney Myer Music Bowl into gear.

“National goddamn treasure,” said the person behind me, as the singer/songwriter proceeded to demonstrate why he’s one of the country’s most-loved performers.

It’s the third year of Kelly’s December tour, named after his Christmas favourite How To Make Gravy, which also includes hand-picked guest artists on the bill. Opening for him this time were Marlon Williams, Kate Miller-Heidke and Courtney Barnett.
