This weekend ends our album release tour, in cosy Kyneton and cool Collingwood.
On Friday May 23rd, 6:30-8:30pm, we’ll be enjoying the open fires at The Chairmakers Wife. It’s a reverse BYO bar, where you can bring your own food, and buy a glass or bottle of their local wines, ciders or beers. Entry is free.
On Saturday May 24th, in the basement of The Grace Darling Hotel, we’ll have a top-notch set from our friend Suzie Dickinson, and then we’ll play 2 sets: Firstly, our favourite covers and then, our mostly-originals album Here Comes The Love, ‘cover-to-cover’ as it were.
Suzie Dickinson is an award-winning singer and songwriter. Likened to Rikki Lee Jones, Michelle Shocked and The Waifs, Suzie’s trio takes you through stories of street life, secret lovers, madness and survival.
The night’s running times are:
9:30pm – Suzie Dickinson trio
10:30pm – Our 60s and 90s covers
11:30pm – Our album set
Doors open at 9pm. Entry is $10. Here Comes The Love will be available to buy from us for $20 OR, if you’d like to learn the words in advance, you can listen or buy it online here!
Annie here. We’re playing our very first music festival on Friday Feb 28! We’re opening Kyneton Music Festival, 7-8pm, in a nice little bar called The Chairmakers Wife (part of Rundell & Rundell Chairmakers). We’ll be playing all our originals and our favourite covers. It would be lovely to see you – Those friendly people who met and welcomed us on our recent tour, our sterling friends from Melbourne, and those of you reading this who we haven’t even met yet! The program, ticketing and camping information are all available via the link above.
Kyneton is only about an hour from Melbourne, by the way, and has much to offer. I stayed there recently and managed to treat myself to an exemplary B&B, cafe and day spa. If you’d like to mix your music festival with a smattering of swishy-swish time, here are my recommendations:
Angoby’s of Kyneton – I stayed in the Gabriel room, which has a deep bath with a beautiful sketched panel of birds on blossomy branches, candles and white linen, and I breakfasted on bagels and fancy jam. My host made me feel so welcome, and drove me to the train station in the morning. Ahhh.
Ruby Cafe – I have a penchant for willow pattern crockery, so was delighted when my free range eggs on sourdough toast and loose leaf tea with soy milk were served aboard this estimable crockery. The food and service were also A1.
Ellenis Salon-Spa – Do you like being exfoliated, massaged, and wrapped in a botanical cocoon, in elegantly luxurious surrounds, and to have a revitalising facial while you’re at it? I do, and I was, and it was just the ticket.
