'Live at The Yarra' was filmed on an Autumn night in May 2014 at The Yarra Hotel on Johnston Street, Abbotsford, Melbourne in front of an intimate crowd of 100 punters. Liz performed two sets on the night, choosing songs from her four studio albums to date. The best ten were selected for the live album and DVD. It was a special night, made possible by a talented film and sound crew and the generosity of the good folk at the Yarra.
