Guest artists this month include:
- The Jeff Stanley Band - “He’s the best guitarist I have ever heard,” were the words spoken on national radio about Jeff Stanley. He was raised in East Africa which exposed him to eclectic music from an early age. As a teenager, Jeff incorporated such styles as African pop, rock, jazz, blues, funk, ska, and reggae into his music. This diversity soon landed him several first place awards in Songwriters Showcases. He’s a diverse singer-songwriter whose abilities are evident throughout all five of his original full length albums. His bizarre sense of humor, ability to improvise and create lyrics on a whim, and spiritual vibe continue to inspire audiences in the United States, Africa, Mexico, and Australia. Most recently, Jeff and his band headlined a sold-out concert at the Sydney Opera House!
- Chloe Hall - Uplifting, joyful, thought-provoking and entertaining. Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Chloe Hall is well known to lovers of Australian contemporary folk music. An accomplished songwriter with a beautiful voice, she is a gifted and entertaining performer with years of touring experience, both in Australia and North America.
- Tom Bolton -Singer/songwriter who writes whatever song feels right at the time, with bright threads of inspiration keeping the energy alive. After more than thirty years of songwriting he has a solid collection of finely-crafted original contemporary folk songs. “A gifted song maker… his powerful lyrics come from the heart and are thoughtful, expressive, philosophical and poetic… a seriously talented musician.” (Anne Infante from The Kookaburra Folk Club – Brisbane)
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 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.
