Cafe Styles sunday lunch

 

BISTRO 21 at Fremantle’s South Beach is starting with Sunday music today, a welcome sign that the wet winter is over and we are moving toward warmer weather and outdoor concerts.

David Pensabene and Dave Johnson, who should call themselves the DD Duo, will do “Cafe Styles” from 12 to 2 pm.

Bistro 21 will in summer also do tapas and drinks afternoons from 5pm to 8 pm, so check them out.

Community Sept 3

 

The Fremantle COMMUNITY CUP this Sunday September 3 should be a day of fun, music, footy, laughter and true Freo community spirit.

The AFL match between local musicians and the media should be a ball, so come along!

GETTING PRIORITIES RIGHT

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on August 26, 2017

 

Getting priorities right is very interesting in government and the media, as these two examples show.

While Fremantle Council has been deliberating long-term strategic projects such as Kings Square, Cantonment Hill, Fremantle Oval and South Quay, the Post community paper reports that our rich neighbours in Mosman Park debated the mundane; if Mr Whippy icecream vans should be allowed to play Greensleeves on weekends, after some residents complained about the nuisance factor of the music.

The TV stations did live telecasts from the Mosman Council chambers about this pretty pathetic council item, but could not bother to turn up in Fremantle yesterday for the very important Marriage Equality rally.

Getting one’s priorities right is not always easy, it appears.

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.

FALLS FESTIVAL BACK IN FREMANTLE

The popular FALLS FESTIVAL, that was held at Kings Square in January this year, will be back again on January 6 and 7, 2018, but this time in the Fremantle Oval Precinct.

It will take over the oval, historic sites, Parry Street and some car parks, and it will have a pass-out policy, so that people attending the festival can roam around Freo and support local traders.

The FALLS FESTIVAL line-up is great:

Flume/ Fleet Foxes / Run The Jewels / The Kooks / Glass Animals/ Peking Duk / Angus & Julia Stone / Foster The People / Liam Gallagher / Vince Staples / Jungle / Dune Rats / The Smith Street Band / D.R.A.M / Daryl Braithwaite / Everything Everything / Allday / The Jungle Giants / Thundamentals / Methyl Ethel / Slumberjack / D.D Dumbo / Anna Lunoe / DZ Deathrays / Confidence Man / Julia Jacklin / Bad//Dreems / Cosmo’s Midnight / Winston Surfshirt / Luca Brasi / Alex Lahey / Camp Cope / Flint Eastwood / Ecca Vandal / Dave / Total Giovanni

Friends of Falls pre-sales commence at 9am local time Thursday 24 August.
Optus Perks pre-sales commence at 9am local time Friday 25 August.
General Sales commence 9am local time Tuesday 29 August.

I love the idea of using Parry Street, and acknowledge that it might affect traffic and parking in the area, but it will be great for the creative activation of the area, and a good sign of things to come when the planned Fremantle Oval Project is finished.

Freo is on the move in a very positive way!
