Emma Donovan and the PutBacks
Hyde Park North Meriton Festival Village, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia

When Aunty Ruby Hunter passed suddenly in 2010, she left an indelible mark on Australian music and culture. In this concert tribute, acclaimed vocalist Emma Donovan and Melbourne rhythm combo The PutBacks perform a range of songs from Hunter’s 1994 debut album, Thoughts Within. Emma Donovan first came to national attention as one third of Stiff Gins. Since then she’s become one of the country’s most powerful soul voices, whether performing solo, with the Black Arm Band, or fronting Melbourne’s exceptional funk and R and B outfit the PutBacks. Catch them at the Spiegeltent delivering soul in spades in a tribute to Ruby Hunter.
