Clancys's

 

Fremantle’s famous and loved family pub CLANCY’S will be given a rare award at this month’s APRA Music Awards in Melbourne.

The fish pub will receive the Australasian Performing Right Association Licensee of the Year 2019 for excellent music citizenship.

This is only the third time that this award has been given.

In my good old pub days I spent a lot of time at Clancy’s on Friday nights and dancing on the invigorating music of the Zydecats on Sunday nights. It is a great and safe tavern with fantastic staff, so congratulations to all there!

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.

The name is on the roof at FREO.SOCIAL where they are working hard on Fremantle’s newest and biggest music venue, that will be opening in just a few weeks.

It will not just be a nigh time venue but will be open during the day as well.

I am looking forward to seeing what the extensive renovations have created inside and outside the building.
