The Old Lyric Theatre (Launceston)

​The Old Lyric Theatre is a 3-piece musical outfit based in Launceston, Tasmania. Their music is an exploration of different folk music styles from around the world and across many different cultures.

Original tunes feature in the repertoire and are complimented beautifully with traditional Celtic ballads, Colonial Australian songs with an emphasis on Tasmanian content, songs and tunes from the Shetland Islands, American Appalachian songs, hoedowns & old-time classics.

Exploring the colours of their instruments The Old Lyric Theatre creates interesting blends of instrumental voices to suit each tune adding story telling through song and audience engagement to deliver a fantastically foot stomping, soulful live experience.
