Mullum Folk Club is set for another night of original music at the Old Drill Hall in Mullum next Wednesday, April 28, at 7.30pm. Atmospheric alt rockers Ghost Mountain are about to release their latest CD Art Without Audience and will feature at the club. Elegant lyricism tempered with almost baroque-like arrangements replete with snarling guitars is what they do... Chalkboard spots will be up for grabs from 7pm. $5 gets you in.
Brian Watt is the king of covers with a songlist containing hundreds of the most popular songs of the last four decades. He was the first musician in Australia to be awarded a music degree majoring in rock and pop vocals (yes, you can do that) and really does have a voice with power, range and diversity. Brian will play the Australian Hotel in Ballina this Sunday, April 25, from 1pm.
The Cath Simes Band will play all their favourite tunes from way back to right now when this local four-piece (fronted by the little woman with the huge voice) hits the Richmond Hotel this Friday, April 23, from 9pm. Apart from the impressive stage presence and rockin’ voice of Cath Simes, the band incorporates the talents of Jamie Sullivan on the four-stringer, Tim Corcoran on the six-stringer, and Scott Hills on the kit. Be prepared to dance from 9pm – you won’t be able to help yourself.
Young singer and songwriter Kyra and guitarist Tim Scholl will present a jazzy mix of original tunes and cool covers when they play the Bang Thai in Bangalow this Friday, April 23, from 7pm.
The Leigh Carriage Quartet will play the Jazz-Bah at the Ballina Hotel this Saturday, April 24 from 6pm. The quartet will dish up a night of contemporary jazz and blues and will feature the talents of Jim Kelly, Jack Thorncraft and Pete Wilkins.
