3 William Street
Coming up at Fairlight Folk Acoustic Lounge on 13th August:
- Jenny M Thomas and the System - Widely acclaimed innovative contemporary band from Melbourne, challenging tradition with wonderful interpretations of the gothic musical tales of Australia's past. As they launch their latest CD, be carried away with the former Circus Oz performer and Golden Fiddle award winning fiddle-singer Jenny M. Thomas, joined by the widely televised Dan Witton on double bass and vocals, Circus Oz Musical Director Chris Lewis on drumkit and vocals. 'The System' is what people loosely called the century of English convict transportation to these fatal shores from the mid 1800’s. Make sure you catch this musical feast!
“Extraordinary, even revolutionary traditional Australian Folk songs”
- THE CANBERRA TIMES
“Jenny M Thomas rescues Australian folk from the world of beards and blue jeans” - THE AGE WEEKENDER
- Takadimi - Be enthralled by the refreshing melodies of Sydney's own Brianne Curran's violin, Curtis Argent's bass, Jeffrey Argent on percussion, with guitarists James McKendry and Kieran Ryan-Colton who make up Takadimi as they launch their new CD. Their name? 'Ta-ka-di-mi': Indian rhythm-syllables to vocalize a beat divided into four. Their winning style? An organic fusion of Jazz and World music injected with youth and life. Don't miss this chance to enjoy this lively band and their inventive improvisations and evocative soundscapes before they head off on their European tour!
