The Shack - September 2007
7.30pm, Saturday 1st September 2007

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”.
  • Triantán - Triantán is a wake up call for anyone who thinks Celtic music is misty stuff. Their blend of Gaelic and English, of spine-chilling laments, blood-curdling war chants, songs of love and betrayal, of drinking bouts and dancing, leave an unforgettable impression of the richness of traditional life in Scotland and Ireland. They also have a body of fine Australian songs whose heritage is conspicuously Gaelic.
  • Sarah Fogarty and Margaret Salem - Two wonderful singers performing songs and music that come straight from the heart. Their lush harmonies are to die for . . .
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.
