Come along and warm yourself up on a winter’s night with guests, Carmel Charlton and The Boxties. Music to warm the soul!
Carmel Charlton: Singer, songwriter Carmel Charlton from WA has built a reputation for her crystal clear voice, guitar and piano expertise and her warm and interactive ‘live’ performances. She paints her musical pictures using images of Australia, it’s history and heritage. Her songs are often heard on the ABC’s Australia All Over program and she has recently been touring her presentation ‘The Great Ride’ that follows the Australian Light Horse and their Advance on Damascus in 1918 when the city surrendered. She recently presented it at the National Folklore Conference in Canberra. [website]
The Boxties apply their big vocal sound and instrumental virtuosity to everything from folk to country and even a bit of tango. Since forming in late 2014, they’ve made a big impression on audiences at Foco Nuevo, Brisbane Unplugged and the Tyalgum Music Festival. Some are professional musicians, some are still studying, some have followed different career paths altogether, but they all started out in the Instrumental Music Program at Brisbane’s Ferny Grove State High School, where they learned the fundamentals of music making.

Jumping Fences: the song-writing partnership of Lachlan Hurse and Sue Monk join forces with a group of experienced musicians to play their energetic folk, tinged with Cuban flavours. Their original works contain imagery and styles that reveal both an incisive insight into Australian life and a long association with Latin American culture. [website]
