Morris a Major in Australia Day Musical Celebrations



Who: Jenny Morris, Makin' Whoopee, Equinox, Chi
Where: Speers Point Park
Author: Jade Lazerevic
When: Saturday January 26, 2002

AUSTRALIAN pop star Jenny Morris will headline the festivities at this year's Australia Day concert at Speers Point Park. The performance from Morris will be the first of many as she works her way around the country to promote the release of her new single Home. The single is her first in six years and is taken from her forthcoming album Hit and Myth which is due in stores later this year.

Her long break away from the limelight came when Morris chose to spend more time with her family.

'I haven't released an album for six years, basically it's just been bringing up babies and that sort of thing,' Morris says.

'But I've been writing all that time and bringing out demos so I had a really good body of work from which to choose from this time.

Morris will headline the show which will also feature performances from local funk act Chi, jazz band Makin' Whoopee and alternative act Equinox. The celebrations will begin at 9.30am and include tree giveaways, children's activities, citizenship ceremonies and the introduction of the Citizen and Young Citizen of the Year.
