Just as darkness set in, it commenced to blow and rain in torrents, the wind made the fire and the smoke twist and turn in all directions. The noise of the tremendous trees roaring and cracking, the rain coming in at points of the roof made me shudder… Had it not been for some brandy and water I found … I don’t know what may have been the consequences. Don’t Look Away.

7 Sladen Street, Birregurra 3242

After wowing us on the Blues Train at Queenscliff Festival in 2017, Bec Goring is coming to Birregurra to treat us with her own style of music that blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz.

An electrifying guitarist and singer reminiscent of Mia Dyson, Bec is bringing along a few of her favourite musos to accompany her as she pays subtle homage to many soul and blues artists.

Sweet vocals backed by a never-ending bag of blues infused riffery, eloquent harmonies whilst maintaining a striking contrast among songs. It's not at all surprising that audiences are spinning her single release 'Weekend' like fairy floss from a candy store.

Bec comes to Birregurra with some of her favourite musos to accompany her. Standby to be blown away by this emerging up-comer. Once again, we're getting in before she hits the heights

We’ve Only Just Begun

Angela Lumicisi channels Karen Carpenter’s unique voice to recreate the distinctive style that made the Carpenters among the best-selling music artists of all time.

We’ve Only Just Begun: The Music of the Carpenters celebrates many memorable and heart-warming songs including Top of the World, Close To You, Yesterday Once More.

 

Australian music theatre star, Angela Lumicisi’s performance is spellbinding as she tells the story of Karen’s transformation from a little girl behind a drum kit to one of the brightest stars of the ‘70s - a symbol of hope, happiness and harmony - through to her untimely death at the age of 32.

 

We’ve Only Just Begun is a remarkable and intimate musical experience.
