Bush Gothic

One Night Only
Saturday May 27 at 8pm

Winner of prestigious Golden Fiddle Award, Jenny Thomas has reclaimed lost Australian cultural territory by re-telling tales of early Australian songs. She has collected stories of criminal women and convict men, treachery and transportation from Australia’s dark history. Then she has lovingly and cleverly created very original, haunting and musically inventive arrangements which she performs live with her trio “Bush Gothic”.

Please arrive in time to be seated before the start of show at 8pm sharp.

The Café Culture Series 2017 shows presented over the calendar year

Dall’Italia All’Australia (From Italy to Australia) Dall’Italia All’Australia (From Italy to Australia) – Sat Sep 2 at 8pm

Italian film director Angelo Drovetti’s 1924 silent film Dall’Italia All’Australia (From Italy to Australia) screened with a live music accompaniment provided by 4 piece band “I Viaggiatori” (The Voyagers). The work is regarded by many as the most comprehensive film ever made of a migrant voyage. It chronicles the voyage of the passenger steam ship Regina d’Italia (Queen of Italy) during an epic 8,000-nautical-mile, seven-week world odyssey from Genoa to Australia, by way of Egypt and Sri Lanka. The film features fascinating footage of each port and city including Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

 

The Wikimen The Wikimen – Sat Dec 2 at 8pm

The series crescendos with the upbeat, fun and light hearted band “The Wikimen” who have extraordinarily vaste styles of music in their huge repertoire. Expect to hear Hawaiian blues, pop, samba, Western Swing, even Mills Brothers’ songs complete with heavenly harmonies and exotica music for your listening and dancing pleasures.
