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!

ALL SMILES AT FREMANTLE STREET ARTS FESTIVAL

 

aaaa

 

Here just a few impressions of what Fremantle looks like during the Street Arts Festival. I did my back so could not stay on, but will shoot some more pics the next two days

Hundreds of people were wandering around the Cappuccino Strip well before noon, so not really sure why the performances there only start at 1pm, but a few lucky ones knew the entertainment did start on the Esplanade at 12.

Really good vibe around town, happy people and happy smiling children, and the sun was shining.

Come and enjoy the fun. It is on all day Sunday and Monday from midday!

FREO.SOCIAL, Fremantle’s latest music venue, micro brewery, distillery and tavern opened its doors at Parry Street to the public today, so make sure to go and check it out!

Millions of dollars were spent on renovating the 1896 built former Artillery Drill Hall, which is owned by the National Trust and was home to the Fly by Night musicians club before.

I did not get a look at the Entertainment Hall, where live music concerts will be held, so make sure to keep up to date who is playing when on the Freo.Social Facebook page.

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.

MARKET UNDER TREES AND PAPAYA TREE IN FREO

 

dsc_0010-1

 

It’s the long WA Labour Day weekend, so no reason not to be out and about in Fremantle on Sunday, as most of us won’t have to turn up for work on Monday or get the kids to school early.

Autumn has started and it was pleasantly cool this morning, so why not head out between 8am and noon to the fantastic Growers Green Farmers Market at Fremantle College on Lefroy Road in Beaconsfield.

It is the first Sunday of the month, so that means it is a big market with additional art&craft stalls, etc.

There is plenty of fresh produce, breads, pastries, eggs, organic and vegan food and of course yummy, coffee, breakfast and lunch on the menu.

Papaya Tree

 

From 2-4pm NSW youngsters Papaya Tree will be performing their mix of reggae, funk, rock and jazz in the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard. It is a FREE concert!

The cafe, pizza bar and bar will be open and there are some great new exhibitions as well.

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.
