The annual BROOME TO BICTON concert with the famous Aboriginal Kimberley band Pigram Brothers is on again this Saturday February 18 from 4.30 pm.
It is at Quarantine Park just above the Bicton Bath on the Swan River.
Bring a picnic for this fun family events that will be held for the 15th time this year, so it has become a great tradition.
It is still a few weeks away but here an early warning that the sublime Dutch violinist Rudolf Koelman is coming to Freo again to play with the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra on March 5 at the Townhall.
If you want to listen to him twice you can also do that on March 4 at the Government House Ballroom.
Check out the FCO Facebook page for info about booking seats.
The first of the FREE Harbour Sundays concerts at the Fremantle Maritime Museum starts today and will go on every Sunday from 6-9 pm until 26 February.
With local live music, DJs and panoramic views over the Indian Ocean, it’s the perfect way to finish your weekend.
Today The Durongs, The Floors and DJ Sarah Tout will provide the entertainment and the bar will be open.
Great views from the upstairs deck over Fremantle Port and the perfect location to watch the sunset.
I am not sure what the weather is going to be like today as the rain did not arrive in Fremantle last night, so take the risk and head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre for the Sunday music session from 2-4 pm.
The Red Dirt Crew from the Norther Territory will perform hip hop, some in traditional language and about Dreamtime stories. This group comes from three remote communities, stretching 700 kilometres.
Also on this afternoon is our Freo songwriter folk singer Donna Simpson, so extend the One Day in Freo day into today and have some more fun!
The delightful Kavisha Mazzella will be playing down at Kidogo Arthouse at Bathers Beach on Sunday January 29 at 7pm with Fremantle musician David Pensa as support.
It is the launch of her CD The Fearless Note. This is a live CD that was recorded on a full moonlit night last September at Julian Burnside QC and artist wife Kate Durham’s place at his request as he wanted a bootleg style of a live performance.
Don’t forget to head out to Clancy’s this Saturday from 4 pm for the fundraiser for musician Steve Gibson who has been diagnosed with cancer.
There is a fantastic line-up of local musos to support their mate at this family friendly event at Princess May Park.
Tickets are only $ 25,00 for a great balmy night out and help someone who deserves our support.
All proceeds are going to Steve Gibson and his young family.
High energy, invigorating NSW band KALLIDAD attracted a huge crowd at the Fremantle Arts Centre on Sunday afternoon.
The very young and young by heart were all there and soon on their feet to dance and clap in the rhythm of the masked musicians. Great fun for all and a perfect summer’s afternoon.
I wonder if anyone at the City of Fremantle picked up on what surely must be a mistake in the promotion of the One Day In Freo concert in the weekly page the City publishes in the Fremantle Herald on page 2.
It reads “Remember everything is free and no tickets or registrations are required.”
Just before that in the promo it also tells us there will be food trucks at the event and I have no doubt that food needs to be purchased from those operators and is not free and paid for by the City of Fremantle.
Imagine, yet another, outrage from the Fishing Boat Harbour traders and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce if the City also paid for the food. The howling about it being detrimental to all other Freo food merchants would be never ending.
I am sure it is a mistake and the word EVERYTHING should be deleted, but as it stands it is misleading advertising CoF!
Don’t miss KALLIDAD at the Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday Music Sessions tomorrow from 2-4!
I heard this group for the first time at the FAC and loved it. Their music has so much invigorating energy that I still must have been out of breath hours later.
The FAC writes: Witness the musical sorcery of Kallidad (NSW) as they combine flamenco virtuosity with thrash metal aggression, mariachi humour, tribal percussion and rock n’ roll attitude.
It is great to see kids coming to the performance with their face painted like the Kallidad musicians, so it is a musical and visual spectacle for old and young to enjoy. I’ll be there for sure!
But of course before that start your Sunday morning at the Growers Green Farmers Market on from 8-12.
Local music legend Steve ‘Gibbo’ Gibson needs a hand! After being diagnosed with bladder cancer his friends in the industry have answered his call and the big GIBOFEST music festival will be held at CLANCY’S FISH PUB in Fremantle on Saturday January 21.
Get your tickets here. With all proceeds going to Gibbo and his young family. Special headliners to be announced next week. Two stages and lots of love.
