George Harrison has played a significant role in Wes Carr’s life. The ‘Here Comes The Sun’ show, which rolls into the Depot on Beaumont on Friday June 26, will see Carr take on Harrison’s chart topping classics. Song like, ‘My Sweet Lord’ and ‘What is Life’, and The Beatles classic ’Something’.
‘Here Comes The Sun’ showcases much loved Australian singer songwriter Wes Carr interpreting George Harrison’s songbook.
“If it wasn’t for George, I wouldn’t have started Transcendental Meditation 5 years ago, the practice played a large part in my recovery from depression. To me, George was a spiritual leader in his own way, as he was a guiding light for so many” explains the versatile singer who shot to fame during the 2008 Australian Idol series.
‘Here Comes The Sun’ will see Wes share intimate tales and anecdotes from George Harrison himself, not only showcasing the depth of George’s music but looking ‘within and without’ on a spiritual journey, recounting conversations George started many years ago. Storytelling is what Wes does best, and this is a truly unique story, celebrating the essence of an incredible artist from a musician’s perspective.
