This sounds like fun!

This Saturday night we roll into Fremantle town to play for the beautiful people at Clancy’s Fish Pub , with a pretty cool line up Nate Lansdell, Gavin Sounness, Matt Hantler, Tom FisherAshlea Reale, Kerryn Curwood, Mike de Velta (on harp), Steve Gibson will be entertaining in a campfire singalong styled setting .

Performing in a circle in the centre of the room the Ring of Fire breaks down the barriers between audience and musician as everyone gathers around the circle and join in the fun. Unrehearsed and always a slightly different line up, the Ring of Fire is a little edgy, fresh, and exciting .

This is one of those nights where the audience become the show as we sing our way through a massive list of our favourite tunes. Just like a campfire singalong, or old time jamboree ….  Welcome to the Ring of Fire. Doors open at 8pm .

FORMER KULCHA SPACE TO BE REACTIVATED

Posted in city of fremantle, culture, hospitality, music by freoview on March 6, 2017

It looks like the former Kulcha space above the Dome cafe on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip will be activated again soon as a bar/restaurant and music venue.

To be able for Mitchelstown PtyLtd, the preferred tenderer after an Expression of Interest period in March last year, to make the interior changes to the building, such as a commercial kitchen and sound proofing, the City of Fremantle will make required changes and invest in making the venue accessible for disabled people and build a lift and new stairs in Collie Street as well as a universal toilet.

It is a lovely space above the Dome and I fondly remember the many performances and exhibitions and the free Saturday concerts on the balcony, so let’s hope the activation and new entertainment venue will be supported by Fremantle residents.

SAX IN THE WHALERS TUNNEL

Posted in arthur head, fremantle, heritage, music by freoview on February 27, 2017

sax

 

The beautiful sound of a saxophone came out of the Fremantle historic Whalers Tunnel this morning and what soul touching and melancholic music it is.

I wonder if the saxophonist is the same man who sometimes plays in the Fremantle Port underpass at Peter Hughes Drive.

FREE FREMANTLE SUNDAY CONCERTS

Posted in community, concerts, fremantle, music by freoview on February 18, 2017

It was just yummy crisp when I got up early this morning and we are in for another a great weekend in Freo.

Just a reminder that Davey Craddock and The Pinnacles will be performing at the  Fremantle Arts Centre free Sunday Music session from 2-4 pm.

Hear stories of sleepy coastlines, chaotic boom towns and the people caught in-between as Davey Craddock & The Spectacles (WA) bring their folk rock, alt-country sounds to FAC.

Cafe, bar and pizza bar are open!

There is also a free 6-9 pm free concert up on the deck of the Maritime Museum, but I have no details on who is playing.

Come enjoy Freo. It’s the best place to be on weekends!
