Sutherland Acoustic presents Mic Conway
7.30pm, Thursday 12th December 2013

Hi everyone!

Saw Mic Conway at Kangaroo Valley and was truly impressed with his antics and style - just wonderful and so different. Hope you can make this concert it is going to be very special.

Mic Conway with Robbie Long - Stripped back, irreverent and shameless, Mic Conway takes the stage with Australian Flat Pick Guitar Champion Robbie Long, playing unusual and idiosyncratic tunes that will make your jaw drop, toes tap and sides split. In a circus of comedy, magic and music they will delight audiences with something new, something old and something in between. From the duo's debut album, "Street of Dreams", Conway croons covers of "Winchester Cathedral" and "It's Only a Paper Moon", dispenses good advice ("Never Bite a Married Woman on the Thigh") and revisits Captain Matchbox's biggest hit, "My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes" (which turns 40 this year). There's still magic, juggling, cavorting and that trademark tongue-in-cheek sense of humour, but this incarnation is also Mic as storyteller - of tall tales and true. It's surreal vaudeville for crooning and swooning.

Also we have the incredible DAMES - an older women's performance group showing that women of all ages can be entertaining, funny and enjoy themselves while occasionally informing the community on things important to them and others.

All in all it is going to be a night you shouldn't miss. Hope you can find room in your diary for this amazing concert.

See you at the Tradies (meals very reasonable too so you can make a whole night of it)

Yours in music,

Jenny Watson for Sutherland Acoustic
