A Quarter to Shine

Happy New Year!
I usually hit the ground running at the start of a new year .....this year I've hit the ground - but can't say I'm running yet.  Still recovering from a very big 2014.  Nevertheless, there are some great projects in the pipeline and happening in the first quarter {I'll think about the next quarter another day!}
Coming Up:
  • Tribute to the Andrews Sisters  with Anousha Victoire and Su Morley, sharing the music and the stories of the trio - the most popular girl band in the first half of the 20th Century, reknowned for their incredibly tight harmonies.  No big band behind us though, we're concentrating on the vocals primarily with pared-back instrumentals.   At:  The Buttai Barn {bookings (02) 4930-3153} 25th + 26th February 11am  Tickets $40 incl morning tea and lunch ...     AND  The Dungeon Sun 1st March, 3pm Tickets $25 at the door/$20 online tickets
  • To Be Shore to Shore on the [almost] eve of St Patricks Day, here is a taste of Ireland in  typical irish craic with a selection of songs, tunes, story, and poetry.  Featuring the BORDERLESS presentation - an account of female Irish Settlement into Australia told in story and original song.  Plus guest artists:  Heart of Erin[Celtic Chorus], young up-and-coming fiddler Manon,  and additional musicians, poet to be confirmed  At:  The Dungeon, Adamstown  Sun 15th March 3pm  Tickets $23 at the door/ $18 online tickets
  • 50's Diva Fever  a nostalgic look at the female vocalists of the 1950's - an era where boy-bands and male singers were 'flavour of the decade', and female artists had to be stand-outs to top the charts.  They were, and they did! You'll hear the songs and stories from artists such as Julie London, Eartha Kitt, Peggy Lee, Etta James, Connie Francis, Blossom Dearie and many more.   Featuring Maureen O'Brien with the support of Robbie Long on guitar and Dave Pudney on Double Bass.   At:  The Dungeon, Adamstown  Sun 26th April 2.30pm  Tickets $25 at the door/ $20 online tickets .... AND  The Buttai Barn 11, 12, 13 May 11am  Tickets $40 incl morning tea and lunch  {bookings direct only (02) 4930-3153}
