FULL PROGRAM

MAIN STAGE:

10:00am: Diddly Squat Band
Frenetic rhythms, rousing harmonies, and infectious camaraderie.
Diddly Squat are an “all-girl” band who got together “to have fun & make some noise”.  Despite knowing “diddly squat” about music, they decided to have a go anyway, and have been spreading the joy ever since.
Their repertoire includes an eclectic mix of “folk-rock” including old favourites from the 1950’s – 1990’s with a sprinkling of originals, and lashings of fun.
Diddly Squat were featured as finalists on ABC ‘s EXHUMED 2013 competition for amateur bands.

Mama Juju & The Jam Tarts are a multi- instrumental, all singing, all women band with quirky songs, big personalities and sweet harmonies. They easily slide across the genres from folk to jazz, rock to blues,  creating a fun upbeat vibe whenever they hit the stage.  A Mama Juju & The Jam Tarts concert is like a box of chocolates- you never quite know what you are going to get next. Their sassy and sometimes funny original songs have been well received at performances and via the radio airwaves.

During uni years Helen played in various bands performing both original material and covers around Queensland, and also took part in a short tour of the USA.
After completing a Bachelor of Music (Jazz Guitar Specialisation), Helen spent a couple of years travelling and writing the basic framework of her first recordings.

ORNAMENTAL GARDEN

10:00 – 11:45am Raven

With a rich melodic voice, accompanied by the exquisite Celtic Harp, Raven’s songs are inspired by her  love of nature, and compulsion to spread her own brand of joy and love. Raven has been performing for 15 years and has played to audiences from 10 to 10,000. It has been said she has the voice and instrument of an Angel…

12:00pm Red Hill Boys

The Red Hill Boys are a bunch of blokes of dubious backgrounds, boisterous talent, and strong presence, who just love to sing. Their light-hearted style brings a freshness to old favourites, breathes life into murder ballads, puts steam back into train songs, brings the rich smell of the sea into shanties, and puts the tears back into country ballads. Brad (guitar/vocals), Lawrie (guitar/vocals), Pete (mandolin/vocals), Ross (banjo/vocals) & Warren (guitar/vocals), have all been around the folk and country music scenes for more years than they care to reveal, and love nothing better than bringing the great music of our past back to life.

 

1:00pm Chuck & Chrissy

CHUCK and CHRISSY  play everything from Roots & Blues to Jazz with hints of gospel and country swing.  Guitar, piano accordion and wailing harmonica. They’ll leave you with that “glad I came… alive on the inside feeling”
Quirky originals & fabulous covers… A class act!

2:00pm Geoff Carwardine

Music has always been  a part of Geoff’s landscape. Performing from age 16, in a trio with his siblings singing songs learned from the radio hits of the day – Peter Paul & Mary, The Papas, and Beatles, he has played in a number of bands, and spent several years living off the land in Bellingen where making music was part of daily life along with growing veggies and milking goats. He later set aside performing to raise four children as a sole parent and studied to become a teacher. Now retired, Geoff plans to devote more time to music.
