‘2 Weeks’ at Swan Hill … 19-30 November 2012

folk @ canowindra … 28th october

This month (Sunday 28th Oct, 4-6:15pm), we welcome “Tami Jade & The Boogie Men” to folk@canowindra! Tami has been singing since 2009 and has matured into a talented young vocalist, as well as a skilled guitarist, bass and mandolin player. Along with Stu Sims (vocals, guitar, bass, tuba & piano), Doug Hughes (keyboard) and Dave Brown (drums – Dave was drummer in Jimmy Little’s original band!), the four have been working together on a selection of swing and contemporary/classic country music songs, combining great harmonies and musicianship. Tami fronts the band as a capable singer with a maturity beyond her seventeen years, bringing looks to an otherwise ordinary looking lot and helping to lower the average age to just 46!

As usual, there will be an open mike segment for any acoustic music or poetry; and it is always enjoyable to hear the variety of acts that turn up on a given Sunday.  The venue is “taste Canowindra” (Ferguson St); entry is free, with a donation for the feature act.

Live music, good food & cuppas, amongst new & old friends: there’s not much better way to relax on a Spring Sunday arvo!! Families are welcome – there’s a great lawn to play on outside.  Any enquiries – Nerida Cuddy: 0429 048 603

Music in Canowindra

Hi there!

I just wanted to let you know about a few extra-ordinary opportunities to enjoy some great live music (& accompanying enjoyable food, atmosphere & friendship!) in the central west in the next week or so, before folk club on the 28th (I’ll send you an email about that next week!).

* Friday 19th, 7pm: an amazing show at taste Canowindra which I can’t recommend highly enough: Fred Smith, Liz Frencham AND some of the Spooky Men’s Chorale.  It’s an awesome combination.  See taste Canowindra’s website for more info, or call them for tickets

* Saturday, 20th, 4:30-7:30ish: Canowindra’s beautiful twilight markets are on again, where all the wonderful foodies & winemakers bring out their wares for us, & you can mellow out on the lawn to a few hours of live music.  There’s a good range of music from country to classical to folk…  (if you like gardens, you might like to do the Open Gardens Australia tour of Canowindra from 11-5 beforehand… it’s awesome (I had a sneak preview last week, & loved it, even though I’m not a gardener!).

* Saturday 27th, Nashdale Hall – Clare Colman will be playing with her friends Steve & Corrine, for the Wine Week Pizza Night  ($25 a head and children under 12 free).  Sounds like another great way to mellow out!

So, I’m feeling very spoilt to live in such a musically rich region (not to mention the great food & sights that accompany it!), and just wanted to make sure you didn’t sit at home not even knowing what delights were out there for you to enjoy!!

take care

Josh, a friend of the Bendigo Committed Company mob, made a great little video letting the rest of us in on the good stuff happening in Quarry Hill … you can see it in the facebook group, ‘the old church on the hill‘.
