Kate Maclurcan & Peter Mace share the bill @ The Loaded Dog
November 23, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm$18 – $20
60 minutes each from Kate & peter
Kate Maclurcan celebrated her 60th birthday by producing her first full length CD. Of the 17 songs, Kate wrote three: a jaunty song about her Dad, her robust Australian version of ‘This Land is Your Land’ and the title track, ‘A New Day’, a touching song about finding the courage to pick up the pieces and move on when life shatters.
…plus songs by Buffy St Marie, Guy Clarke, Neil Diamond, Kristina Olsen, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Richard Thompson, Chris While, Eric Bogle & Pat Drummond. Kate plays guitar and has a warm, wonderfully nuanced voice… the songs convey much feeling and humanity. Kate is best known for her popular community choirs in North Sydney, Narrabeen and the Central Coast. New songs include a tribute to Wendy Whitely’s Secret Garden and the fun of catching up with an Old Flame, called Roadtrain of No Regret.
The Loose Ends are Wayne Richmond keys & accordion; Kazu Milne, violin; Noni Dickson, harp; Gial Leslie glockenspiel & violin & Rob Bullen, bass.
PETER MACE – Bush Poet.
Since plucking up the courage to go on stage in his first Bush Poetry competition in Tamworth in 2005 Peter has managed to entertain audiences at most of the major festivals in Australia, has performed for Great Southern rail on the Indian Pacific and the Ghan as well as the cruise ship the Rhapsody of the Seas.
In the process Peter has managed to win the prestigious Golden Damper Award at Tamworth on three occasions, was awarded the Reciter of the Year at the National Folk Festival and was the 2012 Australian Bush Poetry champion.
In 2018 Peter was awarded the inaugural “Blue the Shearer Award” at the National Folk Festival for the best original poem, “What Price a V.C.”
Peter’s selection of traditional, contemporary and original material will take you on a journey that will have you laughing with delight one minute and maybe shedding a tear the next.
