I am performing on 7 April at Dowse Bar in Brisbane with Those Bloody McKennas (trio).
4-7pm, SUN 7 APRIL, Dowse Bar (under Iceworks), cnr Caxton & Dowse Sts, Paddington, QLD. Tickets: $8 at door. All ages.
Those Bloody McKennas: “Wow!…no mistaking that Those Bloody McKennas are a feel-good band…make the audience feel a bit lighter on their feet and in their spirits. Those Bloody McKennas are one of those bands that you have to see at least once, if only to expand your idea of what is possible. The fact that you might have the time of your life is merely a bonus.” – JESSE SHROCK – LIVE REVIEW – BEAT Magazine
CHANEL LUCAS: Warm, pure vocals and gentle folk guitar are Chanel’s signature sound. Her music allows you to stop and take a breath, and enjoy the moments outside of the busy day-to-day. A writer and songwriter, she has travelled across the world with folk-pop act ‘women in docs.’ Recently, she has been learning to play the ukulele and writing songs for a solo project. www.chanellucas.com or www.facebook.com/chanellucasmusic
On Sunday 7 October I am performing at Folk Redlands at the Indigicapes Centre, Redland Bay. The afternoon starts at 2pm with a blackboard. It is free entry and all ages. I am on with Mark Cryle and Tom Roberts from 3.30-4.30pm.
NOTE: this venue is near Suncorp Stadium and (since we booked it) the Broncos have scheduled a 3pm game on this day. We recommend catching a train to either Milton Station (short walk around stadium to Caxton St) OR Roma St Station (slightly longer walk through Barracks and straight down Caxton St) to get to venue. Or take a bus to Caxton St.
