POKEY LA FARGE BRINGS SWINGIN’ ROCK N ROLL FROM THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK TO THE GOV
Pokey La Farge’s sound is hard to pigeon hole.
Traversing country, blues, jazz, swing, folk and more, it’s got a swagger that’s undeniable and comes directly from the American heartland. Last in town for Womadelaide in 2014, Pokey La Farge wowed the audience with a style that is energetic and captivating. The one, the only, how could there be another POKEY LA FARGE returns to Australia for solo performances, an environment where his inspired mix of country, blues, swing and folk really have the opportunity to shine.
Joining Pokey on his run of Australian shows is SIERRA FERRELL. A jingle-janglin gypsy tornado of sound that doesn’t seem to care what the rules are, Sierra seamlessly fuses old and new into something distinctly her own.

Adelaide based musical legend Don Morrison has been playing for 40 years and done gigs From Perth to Penrith, Bridgetown to Byron Bay and from Sydney to San Antonio. He’s released fifteen albums of his own original songs and even written a book about it!
Now he has teamed up with his two amazingly talented sons, Eddie and Jake Morrison. Jake on guitar and Eddie on double bass and, together with Andy Przygonski on drums to form Don Morrison’s Raging Thirst. This combination brings a unique blend of original, entertaining and insightful songs with superb musicianship and a tightness that only family bands can achieve.
The Yearlings and Jen Lush with her band come together to play a double bill at this favourite city venue. Songs full of sweet longing, words that skip your heart, this is live original music that is both vulnerable and stunningly accomplished.
Robyn Chalklen and Chris Parkinson (The Yearlings) combine warm two part harmonies, acoustic guitar and rich electric tremolo landscapes to create a sound that is aged. Old, just the right amount of haunting.
They straddle old and new, bitter and sweet, darkness and transcendence – modern day porch music.
“Skeins of tattered faith from the Never-Never … windblown plains and the quiet roar of the giant Aussie sky … bleak headlights drilling dust and drizzle … driven by a rhythm from somewhere between the windscreen wipers’ pulse and the exhausted, determined heart.” Philip White
Jen Lush writes evocative, starkly modern folk songs spun from the heart. From her diverse artistic background in dance, theatre and electronica music in Europe and the UK, to the folk-tinged music of her recent work, Jen’s love of lyrical interplay coalesce on her 2017 album The Night’s Insomnia. This beautiful collection of Australian poetry crafted into songs has taken Jen and her stellar band to festivals and venues in South Australia, Victoria, NSW and Tasmania.
Currently working on her new solo album Jen returns to the deeply personal, taking the magnifying glass to the small idiosyncrasies of her life in the suburbs, mining for simple joys and everyday frailties in acoustic songs which teeter on the edges of folk, alt-country and something entirely it’s own.
Bring the kids, let’s celebrate Spring Sunday music afternoons!

A.P works within the boundaries of the old folk masters to deliver an authentic take on 1920’s-1940’s country, folk and blues. His one man show has taken him all over the country playing bar rooms. Packing along a banjo and guitar, a.p sings songs of rambling, brawling, gambling, up’s and down’s, love had and lost and some traditional favourites. His freewheeling, raw style has won over crowds across the country and he has become a favourite at festivals and venues alike.
Courtney Robb w/ Snooks La Vie
Courtney and Snooks move between the lines of alt-country- infused folk and blues.

Together with La Vie’s soaring harmonica they create a unique and compelling sound, encompassing a soulful pop sensibility that has seen the duo attract the attention of local and interstate music festivals and music lovers.
