Duke’s Place Australian Songs in Concert & Session with Ten Quid Poms, Friday 9th November, 7.30 for 8pm
November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pmA$10
Robin Connaughton and John Warner, THE TEN QUID POMS, started singing together about five years ago, and the duo was an instant success with a number of festival, club and concert performances, recently including backing the German/Celtic group Cara and a stand-up ovation for a May day concert in Wollongong.
Look to them for great and creative harmonies, clever instrumentation and a lively stage presence, including the audience in their songs. They will take you into beautiful places in our heritage, as well as happy and sad ones. They have their roots in traditional Australian and English music, and compose many songs in the same genre, as well as singing those of other Australian writers, such as John Dengate and Alistair Hulett. John has written a huge number of songs, and many themed albums, including Yarri of Wiradjuri and Pithead and the Fern. The two of them collaborated to write We Made The Steel, about Robin’s experiences in the NSW steelworks, very well received in England as well as Australia.
$10, bring contribution for supper.
