Farewell winter and welcome spring with an uplifting soundtrack of free live music as part of the 2019 Live N Local Festival.
Shape-shifting uncategorisable post-colonialist DELSINKI will release his debut album, “And No Place Was Found for Them” an amalgam of honest and compelling narratives about war, loss, ageing, tribalism, emotions, nature, the futility of urban life and the perils of conformity. Big themes, fully realised.
Grateful for small mercies, and being a bower bird par excellence, DELSINKI’s approach contains traces of (amongst others) of Leonard Cohen, Tim Winton, John Brack, and bush poets and dreamers, all of whom litter this unique vision of contemporary Australian life.
Formidable Vegetable Sound System are the world’s most triumphant experiment in ecological electro-funk-swing, busting out energetic, quirky mashups of speakeasy-style antique-beats with live ukulele, hyperactive horns and the principles of permaculture. WAM Song of the Year and Australian Independent Music Video Award winners, the 4-piece from Fremantle (via Melbourne), Australia have been touring both hemispheres since 2012 and aren’t about to stop now.
The Elwood Community Choir is a lively local choir, focusing on Australian songs, world music and fun!
Late in 2016, bright yellow fliers were seen in local cafes inviting the people of Elwood to come to their local neighbourhood house and form a choir. Thirty people rocked up to the first rehearsal, and joyful singing filled the air – Elwood Community Choir was born! Led by experienced local choir leader and singer Jeannie Marsh, the choir is open to all. Singing great songs in many styles, with a focus on Australian music and having fun, the choir rehearses on Wednesday nights, followed by socialising at the King of Tonga bar across the road.
