MATHAS AND FEELS AT FREO ARTS CENTRE

Posted in art, culture, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 26, 2017

Winter is approaching and that means the Sunday concerts at the Fremantle Arts Centre will stop soon, but today it is still on with MATHAS and his intricate lyrics and beats.

He will be joined by the new percussion-electro duo FEELS, so it should be a delightful afternoon in the lovely courtyard.

The cafe, pizza bar and drinks bar are open and so are the galleries.

Posted in art, culture, fremantle arts centre by freoview on March 19, 2017

It’s going to be a very pleasant 26 degrees this Sunday so a perfect day to head out to the Fremantle Arts Centre and enjoy the free courtyard music from 2-4 pm by Lucy Peach.

Fresh from winning the WAM Award for Best Folk Act 2016, Lucy will stun you with her epic vocals and evocative songwriting, weaving bitterly sweet tales of wayward love.

The pizza bar, cafe and bar will be open and of course there are exhibitions on, and the craft and gift shop is open.

See you there!

SPAN is an intriguing and diverse exhibition at the Fremantle Arts Centre. The show by Andrew Sunley Smith, Tanya Lee, Clyde McGill, Susanna Castleden and Olga Cironis opened last night and is well worth a visit.

Combine it with the Sunday Music Session in the courtyard tomorrow from 2-4 pm and you’ll have a great creative Freo afternoon.

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!

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.

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.
