Hello dear friends and cohorts!
I hope this news finds you well and happy and life is good 🙂
I’m back in Sydney after a very chilly but very fun Gympie Muster in QLD. Winter festivals somehow bring everyone together as you huddle and cozy up around the fire pits, just like our ancestors would have done many moons ago! Here’s a couple of pics from our adventures from Gympie, as well as the Winter Blues Festival in VIC, my last gig with Irish Mythen at Camelot, and Melbourne’s Spiegeltent show with Lloyd Spiegel…
HOUSE CONCERT TOUR
I wanted to let you guys know about this one before anyone else so you can get in first with your concert requests. I’m doing a House Concert Tour and each concert will be donation-based so there is NO COST to host a concert!
A house concert is basically a get-together of friends in your lounge room or backyard with live music; often with food, drinks and conversation. House concerts are cosy, intimate, and allow your guests to really get to know the artist (me).
Hosting a house concert is an experience you will never forget. A house concert can be…
• an alternative to going out on a Friday night
• a concert under the stars in your backyard
• a reason to get all your friends together
• a way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion
• an opportunity to enjoy music with friends at home
You can host a house concert with as few as 20 people, and they are based on donations from the guests so there is no up-front cost to you!
If you’d like to host a house concert, please get in touch here and request a Host Guide. I’d love to do a show at your house!
2016 Spring/Summer House Concert Tour dates: Nov 17 – Dec 11
Deadline for host requests: Oct 17
2017 Autumn House Concert Tour dates: Apr 27 – May 14
Deadline for host requests: March 1
Once I receive all host requests I plan out my tour and confirm a week later so there’s plenty of time to organise your event (I’ve already received interest from Ocean Grove in VIC to Tambourine Mountain in QLD so am happy to travel).
Feel free to pass this on to friends you think may be interested.
I’ll do a Facebook announcement in a week and then it will be open to everyone 🙂
I hope to see you in your backyard or lounge room soon…
FREE TIX! CAMELOT LOUNGE NEXT SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER
Both my last show and Irish’s last show at this venue SOLD OUT (thank you so much beautiful people!) and I know that some of you indeed missed out on coming. So Irish is back in Australia and we’re moving upstairs to the main Camelot Lounge room next Saturday 1st October, and it’s gonna be bigger and better!
To celebrate, I’m GIVING AWAY a double pass to the show, so all you have to do is be the very first person to email me here and say ‘Yo! Gimme a double pass!’
Here’s the show info and I hope to see you there again next Saturday.
Saturday 1 October (with Irish Mythen)
9pm show (doors 7.30pm)
Camelot Lounge Marrickville
$30 – buy tickets / more info here
(A bit about Irish: Irish/Canadian folk artist Irish Mythen is a true entertainer who is known for her gripping live performances. She is the storyteller who will grasp your attention and the comedian with a joie de vivre who’ll have you laughing from the very beginning.)
Here’s a clip from my last solo show there (thanks to the lovely Glen Morgan) and to everyone for coming!
