||Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse
Ancient language, contemporary music, stunning vocals, poignant stories and guitar brilliance.
Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse use their music and performances to highlight one of the most beautiful and rare languages on the planet; the Noongar language of the southern corner of Western Australia.As conduits of a fractured past, they have made it their mission to become agitators for a hopeful future, by rewriting the script through song. Because the only way to address intergenerational trauma is to bring healing and invite everyone back to the campfire.
They are a multi-award-winning duo, but don’t let that fool you – they’d much rather allow their performances and the power of the music they create speak for itself.
Because even though there are less than 400 speakers of Noongar language left, their work has always been about what connects us. You don’t need to understand the words; love, loss, joy all means the same things no matter how you say it.
|Golden Age Girls in Concert
Join WAAPA graduates Jess Clancy, Amy Fortnum and Jackson Harper in a beautifully nostalgic journey through the Golden Age of Broadway. Golden Age Girls in Concert celebrates the greatest theatrical hits ever written, sung by two leading ladies who “provide a wonderful snapshot of…the future of the Australian music theatre industry”.
Escape into the past with this award winning trio (2019 Julie Michael Cabaret Award, 2021 WA Fringe World Best Cabaret) who will stimulate joyous laughter through well-crafted storytelling and inspire goosebumps with their impressive vocal acrobatics.
||Bang Bang Betty & the H-Bombs
Bang Bang Betty & the H-Bombs take you on a journey to the 50s, when Rock’n’Roll exploded onto the scene. Elvis brought this music to the masses, however there were also many incredible artists who are virtually unknown today and many of them female.
This show will turn the spotlight on some of these stars and bring this exciting music to life. You’ll hear the original versions of classics like “Hound Dog” alongside obscure gems and some of the band’s own authentic tunes.
If you love 50s jump blues, swing, rockabilly and wild rock’n’roll don’t miss this show!
|Barrelhouse with Jessie Gordon, Lucky Oceans and Bill Lawrie
Lucky Oceans, Jessie Gordon, and Bill Lawrie have been playing, singing, and writing music for decades, although not together. Having finally found each other, they are exploring their sound together and bringing new life to old songs and new meaning to old stories.
The trio exudes the spirit of the Barrelhouse. Raucous drinking songs sit alongside the group’s original creations with Jessie’s gospel-tinged grooves, Bill’s impressionistic gems, and Lucky’s epic song, ‘The Bell’ which as sung by Jessie, was ‘The Moment’ of Fairbridge Festival 2021. A Barrelhouse show is an invitation to come together and contemplate the mysteries and wonders of life through song.

||Romance and Fairy Tales with Mark Turner and Strings
In a fast-paced world with ever-changing rules, let yourself drift away to a musical landscape of romance and fairytales. Relax into the sounds of lush strings, beautiful harmonies, and the dulcet tones of Mark Turner singing about his favourite things.
Join Mark for an afternoon of love songs, Disney classics, and lush ballads. He will be accompanied by a world-class string quartet featuring Rachael Aquilina, Teresa Vinci, Alix Hamilton, and Anna Sarcich.
- “Mark & his string quartet were amazing… 5 stars.“
- “Mark was fabulous – music choices couldn’t be faulted and performed with great joy by all.“
|Christmas with the Libby Hammer Quartet
Join the effervescent Libby Hammer and her band for a delightfully jubilant program of festive holiday tunes, complete with audience participation (like a lightbulb!) and a humorous song or two for any Grinches out there. The last few years have been a bit of a wild ride, and this fun, heart-warming and pretty darn lovely Sunday afternoon of good friends and music is just the thing to remind us of what really matters. So bring along the whole gang and swing into the most wonderful time of the year in style.
