K AT E M I L L E R - H E I D K E Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter whose style crosses contemporary pop, folk and opera. Her songs are stamped with witty humour and poignant insight. Kate Miller-Heidke has recently finished work with her collaborator Keir Nuttall on composing the music and lyrics for ‘Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical’, which premiered at the Sydney Theatre Company in November 2017. Now Kate is hitting the road to perform a brand new set of arrangements that combine her unique vocals and alternative pop sounds – and the guitar shredding of Keir Nuttall – with a string quartet. There will be adaptations of well-loved orchestral pieces, as well as some surprises from her back catalogue.
