A celebration of Carole King’s masterpiece, Tapestry, by two of Australia’s most loved vocalists – Vika Bull and Debra Byrne – right here in Penrith at The Joan.

Released in 1971, Tapestry was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for 15 weeks with over 25 million copies sold worldwide. It is considered one of the most important pop albums of the 20th century producing the mega hits I Feel the Earth Move, You’ve Got A Friend, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, It’s Too Late and Will You Love Me Tomorrow.

This album forms the centrepiece of the Tapestry concert as Vika Bull and Debra Byrne, along with their light hearted banter, reimagine the songs of Carole King - the most successful and revered female songwriter in pop music history.

Formidable household names, Vika Bull and Debra Byrne are revered for their vocal styles. Vika with her rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies, is a multi-platinum artist who smashed onto the music scene in the late 80s, singing back-up vocals with her sister Linda in the blues-rock band The Black Sorrows. Vika has continued to forge a diverse pathway into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of her Tongan ancestry.

Debra Byrne needs no introduction. Becoming a household name on Young Talent Time in the 70’s and crowned queen of pop at age 16. Starring in blockbuster musicals and on numerous Australian screens and stages, Debra has forged a formidable career spanning decades. You could be excused for thinking Debra Byrne has already achieved it all. But she has described her upcoming performances of Tapestry as a career highlight.

This show will have you dancing in your seat as you sing along to songs from one of the most successful albums in music history. A great romantic gesture for Valentine’s Day or just fancy reminiscing.
