October 27 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pmA$18 – A$20
1 hour each from Andsome Friends and Nick Lock
Andsome Friends sing contemporary a cappella music with a clear view of the past. Whether a suite of Irish slip jigs with Australian lyrics, a Baroque fugue about recycling, or an a cappella mash up of 1960s tv themes, their music provokes smiles, oohs and aahs, and fevered requests to know ‘when are you releasing your album?’
Miguel Heatwole founded the group in 2009 to record a collection of his original compositions and arrangements, and its long-awaited release is scheduled for 2019.
Based in Sydney, the group’s members have previously been, or currently are, involved in a variety of other musical projects: Ecopella, Monsieur Camembert, Solidarity Choir, The Shwa, The Fossickers, Touchwood, Vox Humana, and Cloud Ten. Two tracks, written by Terry Clinton, feature the vihuela da mano but otherwise the music is all unaccompanied.
Nick is an unaccompanied singer who was raised in Cornwall but has lived in Australia for over 30 years. He’s been singing in Sydney & around folks cubs where he is known & respected. He used to perform with Malcolm Clapp as Bodmin Gaol in the 80’s. Nick released his first album A Proper Job in 2003, a mixture of traditional songs, music hall songs, shanties & songs that sound like they are traditional.
The Hall will be set up with tables as well as the usual chairs in concert formation.
BYOG & nibblies, but don’t try to eat while singing choruses. The usual excellent supper provided by Dallas will still be available.
Disability access, supper available, BYO.
