Ennobled by improbable facial hair, burdened by a vast, lovable incomprehension, and dignified with cavernous vocal chords, The Spooky Men's Chorale have been gleefully smashing up and reassembling the world of men's singing since 2001, employing a devastating combination of beauty and stupidity to comment on the unsolvable paradoxes of being a man. Formed in the Blue Mountains by spookmeister Stephen Taberner, the Spooky Men have become legends on the Australian folk circuit and 2017 will see them in the UK for another delirious summer of spookmania at major festivals and venues. With repertoire combining a judicious combination of Georgian table songs, pindrop beautiful ballads, highly inappropriate covers, and immaculate man anthems, the Spooky Men have built a reputation for highly amusing and stylish musical performances.
Join two prime local singing groups, Women with Latitude and Solstice Singers, for a concert of popular and retro a cappella based songs. It's a fundraiser to help refugees applying for safe haven visas. Adults $25, Concession $20, Under 15 Free.
Voices in the Wilderness have been busy rehearsing an English translation of Banchieri's Il Festino. We would love you to come, so pop it in your diary. It is a frivolous, fun, light-hearted and slightly risqué Madrigal. We are performing it at the Nexus Arts Theatre, LIon Arts Centre, corner North Terrace & Morphett St, Adelaide, on Sunday 4th December at 3.30.
Remember last year’s mighty folk session at the Almond Blossom Festival? Well, the Willunga Football Club has invited us to use their clubrooms again for a folk session and we’d like to get lots of musicians, singers & patrons along from all the local folk sessions for a big warm-up session for the Festival and let people see how great the music is!
It’s open to all kind of folk music, guaranteed to produce some rollicking tunes and songs – and it’ll be lots of fun!
We’ll also have our promotional stall there all day Saturday & we’ll have a float in the Parade on Sunday morning, so if you’d like to help us out by playing some music at the stall, handing out some flyers or selling some raffle tickets please let us know – you’ll be most welcome!
