The Cook’s Daughter 

Lynn Hazelton returns to the Fly By Night this February, as part of the Fringe World festival 2018. Through vision, verse and song, Lynn shares her authentic outback experience ‘The Cook’s Daughter’ – a dusty folk tale based on her childhood as the the cook’s daughter on the iconic and isolated Melita Station.

Set on gibber stone plains, surrounded by twisted mulga on the edge of the Goldfields, 10 year old Midge is as annoying as she is small.

Surviving eagle strike, mischievous willies and dastardly drought, she ‘gets her mosey on’ in her quest to be useful to all she encounters along the way.

Western Australian raised and educated through school of the air, Lynn has received 16 song writing commissions, 11 awards and 4 stars in the Scotsman Edinburgh. Her album The Cook’s Daughter was co-produced with Bill Chambers.

Hazelton holds the outback deep in her skin since growing up on a sheep station at the edge of the Western Desert. The daughter of an eccentric station cook and living alongside the Wongatha people continues to influence all she does today. It inspires her work in arts and cultural development, while her music brings us along for the ride.
