This can be performed live or shared as a demo recording.

Lunchtime Concert featuring Songwriter Students from The Hedberg and Guest Artist Ange Boxall 

Ange Boxall has performed, written, recorded and released albums throughout the USA, UK, Europe and Australia. For over a decade, she was based between London and Nashville. She has co-written, recorded and performed with hugely successful songwriters and musicians, including J.D Souther of Eagles and Linda Ronstadt fame, multi-Grammy Award winner Jim Lauderdale, and the late Bones Hillman of Australia's own Midnight Oil.

Now back in Tasmania and residing on the East Coast of Tasmania, her music continues to flourish as she responds to her birthplace and the Tasmanian landscape physically, metaphorically, and politically. Ange's latest album, Skipping Stone, was released in September 2023 and debuted on the ARIA Country Charts at #1 and #7 for Australian Albums across all genres.
