We are very excited to have The Con Artists supporting us in our Summer Fiesta.
With a vast line-up of wind, brass, percussion and string instruments, the Band’s high energy repertoire is influenced and informed by the musical traditions of New Orleans brass bands, Klezmer, Balkans, French-Canadian Rock n Reel, Italian Folk, Romani and others. Directed by David Rooney and featuring David De Santi (accordion) and Mark Holder-Keeping (sax/clarinet). http://www.conartists.com.au
Last weekend we had a great reception in Kiama at Folk By Sea – thank you everyone for your warm reception. We are looking forward to this Friday’s show at Tomerong and then at Huskisson on the Saturday where we will run some dance and drumming and guitar workshops then our last show in the night.
Recently we had a ball doing our first photo shoot. Jane coaxed the musicians and dancers into posing for Renee, our photographer, who was always kind and patient.
We enjoyed spending a day together without the pressure of sound-checks and costume disasters!
