On October 1 Rachel And I plan to host a touring artist for a very small afternoon performance at our home. Very relaxed, outdoor and room for maybe 30. Details are being fleshed out right now however I am keen to gauge interest in such an idea. There will be a ticket charge ($20, the entire amount going to the artist) via House Concerts Australia which seems a brilliant idea to me. More info on the concept at www.houseconcertsaustralia.com

 

The performer is www.bartstenhouse.com

 

Im hoping we can pull a decent crowd and help support some grass roots music. Let me know if you're keen!!

 

Attendees-

elcamry

TonyM +1

MattJTaylor +1

FrankN +8 or so!

Darthlaker 

 

plus about 12 non SNA folk.

Excellent. 

 

Just ts to clarify, this really isn't a HiFi thing, just a music thing. So bring your wife/partner/son/mother/mate as well! Bart says that the golden number of punters to make the trip from Melb worthwhile is 20 so I'll aim to have that number confirmed soon, with extras being a nice bonus for him.

Ok so a few more details. Bart will be driving over from Melb on that Sunday, so the start time will be a bit later. Plan to arrive around 415 for a 430 start and 7pm finish. Also we will be firing up the BBQ after for anyone who wants to bring some animal flesh and hang around for a chat.

G'day Ant.  See, this is why I don't believe in planning anything more than 24 hours in advance.;)

 

Unfortunately, due to some unexpected developments, we won't be able to get there on Sunday.

 

But I definitely did commit to paying for 2 attendees regardless of whether we could make it as it's a great concept and deserves support - will be in touch.

 

Hope it's a great day - looking forward to the reports/pics.:thumb:

      This is so subjective but I'm going to ask - What do you consider your best live recording?
       
      For me it has been the following (to date):
       
      1/2 The Ramones - It's Alive
       
       
      2/2 Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt - Meeting by the River.

      Kimberley Wheeler Duo is the feature act at Selby Folk Club on Friday 7th April.
       
      I usually see Kim playing upright bass and sharing vocal duties in a couple of acoustic & bluegrass bands, but this appearance will highlight her talent as a singer/songwriter.
       
      Support act will be Cathy Dobson.
