The Tramshed
1395a Pittwater Road
Narrabeen

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

Guest artists this month include:

  • New York Public Library - A lively, popular, and thoroughly entertaining trio who have been an icon of the Sydney folk scene for years, having begun their career at the original Shack. They play a variety of music including originals, Celtic, comedic and something they call “adapted bluegrass”.
  • Wheelers & Dealers - winners of the 2003 MusicOz folk award and purveyors of Antipodean Celtic music. This group is made up extremely talented and experienced musicians who benefit from diverse music backgrounds from rock, country, world music and traditional Irish music. They are the “reel deal”. “Awesome musicianship” . . . “just fantastic music” . . . “wide ranging repertoire . . .feeds the brain and heart”.
  • Alan Kidd - singer/songwriter originally from Scotland whose finger picking original music forms a unique blend of blues, jazz, and folk.
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.
