The Shack - August 2007

Posted Sunday, June 24, 2007

The Tramshed
1395a Pittwater Road

(In between the Ambulance Station and Car Park of Narrabeen Shopping Centre)

Guest artists this month include:

  • Urban eXcentrics - Presenting a range of material drawn from their collective backgrounds in Irish, Hungarian, classical, jazz and original/contemporary. Their diversity forms a fusion of multiple genres and sounds produced by tantalising double basses, dancing mandolin, banjo and citern with driving rhythm guitar & solos. Featuring unusual and inspired vocals, their rich cultural history and musicianship take you on a unique journey and leave you always wanting more.
  • Green Mohair Suits - Inspired by the quiet desperation type songs of Hank Williams, this 3-piece band describes themselves as “mournful country blue grass”. The strong vocals and multiple part harmonies are cleverly complimented with backing guitars, banjo and mandolin.
  • Spasm Band - The Shack’s resident good time band made up of all original Shacky’s who are accomplished singers and musicians doing jug, blues, folk… you name it, they can do it. Members have played in a variety of bands over the years including Country Radio, The East Neasdon Spasm Band, the Stovepipe Spasm Band and the Wheeze and Suck Band.
Coffee and tea is available but BYO refreshments and nibblies.

The Shack is held on the first Saturday of every month. There's a cover charge of $15 (or $10 for members, students and pensioners) to cover costs. The Shack is a non profit organisation – all proceeds go toward the promotion and presentation of original, contemporary and traditional 21st century folk music.
