IN A surprise announcement on his Facebook page, singer Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu confirmed he will be playing an intimate gig in Mullumbimby this week.

Creative director and long-time friend of the singer, Michael Hohnen, explained that Gurrumul has been recording a very special list of songs in Byron Bay for the last couple of days.

"This is a bunch of songs that he grew up with. A lot of these songs are for his family, and they have been begging him to do something like this for years. The people who brought him up are really excited about it. He will take these (songs) home and will play it to them," Mr Hohnen said.

Gurrumul will be playing this Wednesday at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall, 55 Dalley St, Mullumbimby.

Doors open at 6pm for 6.45pm show. $40
