Tickets $20, cash at the door. Sign in using QT codes in the usual way, bring masks & sanitisers etc.

Craig Sinclair combines timeless folk storytelling with a lyrical fingerstyle acoustic and slide guitar style to craft a uniquely Australian blues sound. Recently relocated to Sydney from the south coast of WA Craig performs as a soloist tonight, and also as part of folk group the Peppercorns.

The Three Audacities – A new Sydney folk trio – work songs, sea shanties. Emma Norton (banjo) has an incandescent voice with a huge range, every note aglow with warmth and energy; Dan Kenny too has a distinctive vocal range and, with a background in jazz and blues, is adept and creative on electric and acoustic guitar; and, singing bass and 50 years older, the voice of Margaret Walters adds weight of experience and powerful emotion. They met at Redfern Shanty Club three years ago and found they have many songs in common and share a love of harmony. The name is from a speech by Danton, a leader of the French Revolution, quoted later by Lenin: “We need audacity, and yet more audacity, and always audacity!”; sometimes abbreviated to “the three audacities”. For the singers, it means “We tell it like it is! We’re not out to produce revolutionary socialists – we let the songs speak for themselves”.

As we will not be serving supper, please bring your own nibbles & non-alcoholic drinks – our lease does not allow alcohol on the premises.
Newtown Neighbourhood Centre is well served by buses and is opposite Newtown station.
