Some of Adelaide’s finest musicians have joined forces to stage a Bushfire Benefit Concert to be held on Sunday 12th January from 2.30-7pm at the Governor Hindmarsh. All proceeds will go directly to those most affected by the devastating 2019 Adelaide Hills bushfires.
To date the devastating fires have resulted in the loss of 1 precious life, 87 homes, crops, vines, sheds and machinery, stock, pets and native animals, leaving countless residents without essentials such as food, clothing and shelter.
Event organisers are partnering with the Hut Community Centre based in Aldgate to ensure all funds are channeled directly to those in immediate need.
The response has been overwhelming from those offering to show their support for the affected community in the wake of these horrific events. The talented lineup includes The Yearlings Band, Ollie English, Don Morrison, Kelly Menhennett, Courtney Robb & Snooks La Vie (ex Hiptones), Nikko Kipridis (Streamliners), Andra Cordell and Satisfaction – The Stones Show, all donating their time for the cause.

The Daughters Of Rosin
Locked in a room for nine months in a house she once called her home. Ashamed, confused, trapped, this ‘fallen woman’ shares her powerful story. A poignant ode to Ireland’s hidden past, the audience is invited to witness and journey with this forsaken Daughter of Ireland.
The play was developed through research about church and state-sanctioned abuse against women in Ireland over the last 100 years. It is an experimental and challenging performance, which hopes to give a voice to those silenced.
★★★★★ ”This play is everything great theatre should be.” Michael Jackson, Belfast Media Group.
The performance at Hats Inc in Clare Valley will run for 2.5 hours and will also include a performance of traditional Irish music following the play, performed by Cahal Clarke.

SALTWATER TAFFY – Front porch songs in the tradition of Americana, the music that migrated from the British Isles up into the mountains of Appalachia and came back down again. Saltwater Taffy takes you on a melodic ride across the salty seas to the hills and cotton fields, from civil wars to lost loves.
‘Think sublime four part harmonies, tight as a drum arrangements, material varying in genre but leaning to both the traditional and contemporary in folk/acoustic music, then you get the idea.’
