This Way North

 

It is going to be a great day in Fremantle, so why not start at the Growers Green Farmers Market this morning. It’s on from 8am to midday at Annie Street, Beaconsfield.

After that visit one of our many lovely local cafes and then from 2-4 pm relax in the courtyard of the Fremantle Arts Centre, where Victorian duo This Way North will entertain us with soulful vocals and alt-pop melodies, combined with solid groove based drumming.

They are sometimes likened to the Black Keys and Tame Impala.

Also performing at the FAC this afternoon is Belle Harvey. who will be singing alt-country and folk tales.

Oct 15. National Hotel

And if you need more after that, Jook Joint is performing at the National Hotel from 3.30-6.30 pm.

FANTASTIC FREO FOLK FESTIVAL

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, festivals, music, Uncategorized by freoview on October 11, 2017

 

Folk Fest line up and times

 

Who says nothing is happening in Fremantle, a local resident said to me this morning, while we were watching the installation of the Felice Varini artwork all along High Street from the  far west end to the Townhall.

A book shop owner also told me how much she liked this kind of public art.

We are fast approaching the best Freo season with the start of festivals and events and this Saturday the big FREMANTLE FOLK FESTIVAL by Clancy’s at Princess May Park is a great sign of good things to come.

The festival is a family-friendly event with lots of things to do for children. It starts at 11 am and finishes just before midnight.

Have a dance! Have fun and embrace the Freo lifestyle!

Spending Sunday afternoons at the Fremantle Arts Centre is one of my favourite things to do.

The Sunday Music sessions have such a relaxed community ambience, with kids running around, people sitting on the grass, while the smoke from the pizza oven keeps the flies away.

Today was just lovely with great blues by Lightning Jack and Old Blood, and the sun was out, so a perfect Freo day!

The SUNDAY MUSIC sessions in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard have started again and tomorrow OLD BLOOD will be on stage from 2-4pm.

Old Blood are widely regarded as one of the best live acts in WA, beating a path into the hearts and minds of their audiences thanks to their modern blues stylings and the captivating stage presence of front man Tony Papa-Adams.

They’re supported by Lightning Jack, showcasing his fresh roots sound driven by heavy slide guitar.

The cafe, bar and pizza bar will all be open, so be there for this great family event and fantastic community afternoon!

An early message that the FREMANTLE FOLK FESTIVAL will be on in two weeks from now at Princess May Park next to Clancy’s on October 14.

The Pigram Brothers are coming all the way from Broome and there is a great line up of performers, as the poster above shows.

Princess Park is a lovely venue for it, with walls around it, so a good venue to bring kids as well.

Tickets from OZTIX, http://www.clancysfishpub.com.au and at the door.

See you there!

FINALLY FREO DRILLHALL PROGRESS

Posted in city of fremantle, fly by night club, music, sunset events, Uncategorized by freoview on September 22, 2017

 

After three years of procrastination since the eviction of the Fly by Night musicians club from the Fremantle Drillhall, Sunset Events has announced that they secured a liquor license for the 800 patron  Freo Social Hall venue.

I noticed last Friday when I had a meeting at Fremantle Prison, that there were a lot of tradesmen around the hall, so hopefully it will open sometime next year.
