Mutual Acquaintances

Guest artists this month include:

  • The Mutual Acquaintances - comprised of Ian Barker, Brett Guyer, Luke O'Neill and Michael Spencer – is a four-piece ensemble performing new and traditional Anglo-Irish music with vocals, guitars, cittern, accordion, tin whistles, bodhran and uilleann pipes. Together, they present a rich program of traditional and contemporary folk music ranging from a cappella songs to atmospheric guitar solos and lively sets of jigs and reels.
  • Grimik - An honest, acoustic, folk-rock style, Grimick are an energetic group of singer/song-writers who never stray far from the essential ingredients - great rhythm, a contagious melody, and something to say. Vocally, Grimick will impress. Add to this, captivating guitar, earthy percussive rhythms and arrangements on conga, ukulele, trumpet and piano.
  • Daniel Champagne - After spending two years on the road touring playing at just about every festival under the Australian sun, Daniel has built a firm reputation as one of the most exciting young performers in the country. The singer, song writer guitarist performs sets ranging from intense blues-driven crowd pleasers, experimental compositions, bags of originals to century old Folk and Blues Songs – all delivered with an exciting youthful flair.
Coffee and tea is available but BYO refreshments and nibblies.
