If you want to listen to him twice you can also do that on March 4 at the Government House Ballroom.

DREAMTIME HIP HOP AND DONNA SIMPSON AT ARTS CENTRE

red-dirt-crew

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!

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.

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.

MISLEADING FREMANTLE CITY PROMOTION

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, local government by freoview on January 14, 2017

misleading

 

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!

INVIGORATING KALLIDAD AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in concert, fremantle, fremantle arts centre, music by freoview on January 14, 2017

kalidad

 

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.
