IRISH FIDDLER AT FREO PS ART SPACE

Posted in city of fremantle, concert, music, Uncategorized by freoview on August 25, 2017

 

ROBERT ZIELINSKI TRIO and BILLIE ROGERS at PS ART SPACE tonight!

Friday 25 August 2017, 8pm- Doors open 7pm

After a short break the sixth concert in the Hemispheres | Music of the World series at Fremantle’s PS Art Space in Pakenham Street is back, featuring formidable Irish fiddler and instrument maker, Robert Zielinski, playing in a trio with Fiona Doyle, wooden flute, whistle & vocals and Phil Waldron, double bass, mandolin & vocals.

The ROBERT ZIELINSKI TRIO draws inspiration from the deep reservoir of an older generation of west Ireland fiddlers. As a seventeen year old Zielinski travelled to Ireland and spent the next 14 years learning and immersing himself in the traditional music and in 2000 he won Ireland’s Michael Coleman Traditional Fiddler of the Year Award.

Together this trio plays a captivating set of tunes from Ireland, Scotland and the Shetland Isles including lively reels, jigs, strathspeys and hornpipes, as well traditional and contemporary songs, haunting slow airs and originals.

Supporting the ROBERT ZIELINSKI TRIO in the opening set is Fremantle’s own, BILLIE ROGERS, who describes her music as “soulful country”, but is so much more.

Rogers is an exceptional singer and songwriter who can rightly be described as one of Fremantle’s best hidden treasures.

There will be a live music event at Little Space on Sunday week, so go along and support this relatively new art venue.

Little Space Freo will host an acoustic performance by Harry Heart, who has just launched his new EP ‘Sun Follows’. Listen to Harry’s new songs in the same warehouse space where he recorded his EP earlier in the year.

Harry will be supported by Luke Fox, a coastal roots artist from Australia’s South West, and Duncan Saige, a singer-songwriter from Perth, with proceeds donated to Oxfam Australia

Following a wave of acclaim in Australia and the UK for the raucous rock track Baby Calm Down, and a year spent working closely with members of Bluejuice, The Snowdroppers and Glass Towers, Harry Heart retreated to J Shed inFremantle to piece together a soothing EP, titled Sun Follows.

Tickets $ 10.00 on sale NOW through Eventbrite HERE

HIDDEN TREASURES QUEUES

There have been complains about the unacceptable long queues at the final night of the Fremantle HIDDEN TREASURES Music Festival, and calls for more venues to be added next year to avoid people having to wait for a long time.

The queues are clearly the result of the success of the festival and I wonder if growing it bigger will work.

After all this is an event where patrons only pay $ 20.00 to get entry into all five venues-National Hotel, Bar Orient, Buffalo Club, Navy Club, PS Art Space, plus the Fremantle Tram. That is an absolute bargain to listen to great local musical talent!

If the organisers added more venues the ticket price no doubt would have to be increased, and the initial concept behind Hidden Treasure was to create awareness for the struggling West End clubs. But since the start of the festival the Workers Club and Wyola Club have closed and other venues been brought in.

What do you think?
