MYSTERIOUS TROUBADOUR AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, city of fremantle, concert, fremantle arts centre, music, Uncategorized by freoview on March 9, 2019

 

Archers

 

There are not many free Sunday courtyard music sessions left this season at the Fremantle Arts Centre, so go and enjoy it tomorrow.

Mysterious Australian troubadour Archer (VIC) harks back to a bygone era. His bush ballads and curious road tales are delivered with rakish charm and dirt under the fingernails. Archer will be joined by a one-off WA folk supergroup.

The BOM forecast for tomorrow is patchy rain in the morning and then clearing with a max of 29 degrees, so perfect to sit under the trees and enjoy some food and wine from the cafe, bar and pizza bar.

dsc_0010-1

 

It’s the long WA Labour Day weekend, so no reason not to be out and about in Fremantle on Sunday, as most of us won’t have to turn up for work on Monday or get the kids to school early.

Autumn has started and it was pleasantly cool this morning, so why not head out between 8am and noon to the fantastic Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road in Beaconsfield.

It is the first Sunday of the month, so that means it is a big market with additional art&craft stalls, etc.

There is plenty of fresh produce, breads, pastries, eggs, organic and vegan food and of course yummy, coffee, breakfast and lunch on the menu.

Papaya Tree

 

From 2-4pm NSW youngsters Papaya Tree will be performing their mix of reggae, funk, rock and jazz in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard. It is a FREE concert!

The cafe, pizza bar and bar will be open and there are some great new exhibitions as well.

HEART-WARMING ONE DAY IN FREMANTLE

 

 

What a beautiful, brilliant, emotional and satisfying day the ONE DAY IN FREMANTLE event was today.

It is so good to see so many Aboriginal people mingling with the rest of us, but while that should be the norm it sadly isn’t.

What a great way to connect and lose some of the ignorance we have about each other and what a delight to see so many families and young kids being part of it all.

But shades structures need to be erected at next year’s One Day because when it is as hot as today people need more shade.

I loved the day. It leaves me with so many warm and positive feelings and so much gratitude that I could be part of it. Kaya! Thank you!

GREAT LINE UP FOR ONE DAY IN FREMANTLE EVENT

 

One Day

 

 

The line-up for Fremantle’s ONE DAY event on January 27 has been finalised.Talented young Indigenous singer Emily Wurramara, local band The Hunting Birds and indie-pop rockers The Spring Peaks will be joining headliner Montaigne and Adrian Eagle on the Esplanade stage.

20-year-old Wurramara, originally from Groote Eylandt off the coast of the Northern Territory, sings in both English and her first language Anindilyakwa.

She was nominated for the 2018 ARIA Award for Best Blues and Roots Album for her album Milyakburra.

Fremantle folk/rock five-piece The Hunting Birds have appeared at major festivals including Falls Festival Downtown and Bluesfest Byron Bay, plus support slots with folk heavyweights The Lumineers and English singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner. Last year they released their debut EP In Its Nature.

Perth band The Spring Peaks have previously shared a stage with artists including End of Fashion and Birds of Tokyo. Their next single is set to be released in early 2019 which will be the title track of their forthcoming EP.

Headline act Montaigne said she was very proud to be part of One Day.

“I like that there’s an event in the country where we can celebrate Australia without alienating the descendants of its first people,” the Sydney-based singer songwriter said.

WA Music Industry Award winning Noongar singer Gina Williams will return to MC and perform at One Day for the third time, with Dr Richard Walley OAM and Marie Taylor delivering the Welcome to Country for the event.

One Day in Fremantle on 27 January will begin with a smoking ceremony at Bathers Beach at 8am, followed by a host of Aboriginal cultural workshops and activities at Kidogo Arthouse for everyone to enjoy.

At 2pm the focus will shift to the Esplanade Reserve for the One Day concert. In addition to the performers on the main stage there will also be activities, entertainment and food trucks.
