Blindman's Holiday Visits Adelaide
Sat 30 July 05 at the SA Folklife Centre

By Linda Marr and Christina Mimmocchi
Posted Friday, July 8, 2005

"A breath of pure air from Australia . . . four women and their enchanting voices . . . sparkling with precision and clarity" - Valerie Cormont La Voix du Nord (France)

All-female a cappella quartet Blindman's Holiday was around 20 years ago, before it was hip to browse the "World Music" section of your local record shop. Blindman's Holiday is still going strong and bringing its unique blend of folk, choral, percussion and groove to Adelaide for one night only at the SA Folklife Centre on Saturday 30 July at 8pm.

Since 1985, BMH has toured extensively throughout Australia and Europe, performing in venues from the New Morning Jazz Club in Paris and the Melkweg in Amsterdam to the Sydney Opera House. The latest line-up of the quartet - Linda Marr, Clarita Derwent, Christina Mimmocchi and Helen Rivero - is currently putting finishing touches on a new CD that will be released later this year.

Tickets are $15/$12. The SA Folklife Centre is at the corner of South Road and George Street, Thebarton. Food and drinks will be available.

Come and help BMH sing the winter blues away!

For bookings phone Folklife Centre (08) 8354 4606.
