Tathra PUB CHOIR - Every Thursday 6pm

Thursday May 23rd from 6pm - 7:30pm
This week session will be led by (To be confirmed).

TATHRA PUB CHOIR is a community choir, funded by a $999 grant from Bega Valley Shire Council, part of the Tathra and District Fire Recovery and Resistance grants. Organized by Anne Hamilton-Foster.

PUB CHOIR is a movement that started in Brisbane in 2017, where people of all ages and ability levels get together in a friendly relaxed environment to sing for the enjoyment and endorphins! In an hour and a half friends and strangers learn a well known pop song and perform it as a group. Based on the premise that everyone can sing, we create a non judgemental environment where mistakes are embraced as part of the process. Having a larger group makes it easier to hold harmony parts and create a great sound collectively.

TATHRA PUB CHOIR will run weekly on Thursdays 6:00pm - 7:30pm at the Tathra Hotel.

Michael Menager Trio

Live Music with ' Michael Menager Trio ' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 26th May 4:00 -7:00pm. Free admission.

The Michael Menager Trio was born at Cobargo Folk Festival 2017. Sam Martin (guitar) and Michael Menager (vocals, guitar) signed for the festival as a duo. But at Sam’s last-minute invitation, Dan Efraemson (violin) - from Malumba, a World Music band that Sam also plays in – jumped up on stage. And so it began.

Menager’s lyrics cut along a philosophical edge, his rhythms and melodies cut across the spectrum of bluegrass, folk and blues, and his stories cut through the inner landscape of a poet and traveller – and all of this is framed and embellished by tasteful improvisation from Martin and Efraemson.

The Chesterfield Band - on tour

Live Music with ' The Chesterfield Band' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 2nd June 4:00 - 7:00pm.

Free admission.

The Chesterfield Band are one of those bands that you can’t help but love. Their music is earthy, authentic, and incredibly endearing. With their deeply infectious vocal melodies and rich instrumentation, the music will wrap itself around you like a warm blanket.

The Chesterfield Band started in the kitchen with Tess and Cam writing and singing together. They decided to enter a competition for local songwriters. They won, and with the money, they recorded and released their first single under the band name “My Dad & I”.

6 months and a whole heap of shows later the duo ran into an old friend of Cam’s, Dylan. He was performing in the same music festival with another band. In a spur of moment decision the guys invited Dylan to play drums on a song and that was that, they’d formed a band.

With Dylan on drums ‘My Dad & I’ continued to play shows locally and interstate. Over the next the few months Tess turned 18, and the bond between the band members became more like a family. Everyone agreed that it was time for a name change and to start taking things to the next level. The guys set up a ‘Name the Band’ competition and decided on “The Chesterfield Band”.

Looking to expand their sound even further the band played with some great local bass players and then struck gold with Craig. He brought not only an incredible musicality to the bands sound but fitted perfectly into their unique family vibe.

Vocals - Tess,
Vocals, Guitars - CC Hall,
Drums - Dylan Harding

Julian James Trio - on tour

Live Music with ' Julian James Trio ' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 7th July 4 - 7pm

Free admission.

Everything about Julian James and his new album ‘Silver Spade’ shouts the love of traditional blues for all to hear. His style is rooted in the old-time acoustic strummers of a bygone era, and he joins next generation artists such as Larkin Poe, Blind Boy Paxton and Pokey LaFarge in bringing authentic new voices to a style that has endured for 100 years.

Still in his twenties, Julian James has spent most of his adult life on the road, first as front man of Blues festival heroes ‘Catfish Voodoo’ and on his own. ‘Silver Spades’ is the second album in his solo artist catalogue and Julian brings the experience of a seasoned performer and a fresh perspective to this set of traditional songs by artists like Ma Rainey and early Muddy Waters, and originals like the title track Silver Spade.

Alex Nicol's Sunday People

Here is a chance to see one-man play in two acts by Alex Nicol at the Tathra Hotel.

Wed 8th May from 6pm to 8:30pm

Free admission.

Alex Nicol was the ABC's first rural radio presenter. He started at the ABC in 1967, and was presenter of the 'All Ways on Sunday' program. He wrote many books. He is also a playwright, and his plays have been produced in London, New York, Melbourne and Sydney, with credits including an award at the Manchester International Writing Competition, the Wal Cherry Award, and The London International Playwriting Award.

——————————————————————————————-

None of these stories were kept. They live on in memory. SUNDAY PEOPLE is that memory. Written and perfomed by Alex Nicol in a masterful piece of storytelling that's a tribute to those lost voices.

They're the voices of ALL WAYS ON SUNDAY. To some it was oral history. To ALEX NICOL, just great stories about people who owned them.

The program was born an orphan in 1969. The ABC's Sunday audience was miniscule and its presenter a raw novice. A year later it was a phenomenon. Its audience huge and growing. The three and a half hours of national radio programing had found the last of the World War One soldier settlers, rough riders, prospectors, gold smugglers, pioneers. Real people from every corner of Australia and it caught their stories just in time.

In a first for the ABC, the program travelled. In Alice Springs, where the ABC had no facilities, the local commercial station opened its doors to welcome Alex. The format was always the same. Local people with a chance to tell their own extraordinary stories to people all over Australia.

On the back of SUNDAY PEOPLE, Allen & Unwin have published Alex's first collection of stories OLD DAYS, OLD WAYS.

DON'T MISS this opportunity to experience a master storyteller weave his magic.

Chris O’Connor On Tour

Live Music with ' Chris O’Connor ' at the Tathra Hotel.

Sun 5th May 4 - 7pm

Free admission.

Old time fingerpicking Blues. Winner of the Sydney Blues Society 2013 Solo Performer of the year. Played at the 2014 IBC Memphis USA.

———————————————————

Chris O’Connor has had an enduring fascination with the blues of the 1920s and 30s masters, from players such as Son House, Willie McTell and Blind Blake. He uses small bodied 6 string guitar, a rich deep 12 string and a well-worn steel bodied National resonator to accompany his renditions of vintage blues songs.

In performance, his varied repertoire ranges from string-snapping delta blues to hypnotic minor key laments, gospel shouts, slide guitar instrumentals and ragtime songs with sparkling finger picked accompaniment.

O’Connor has been well received at major East Coast blues and folk festivals. In 2014 and again in 2019 he has represented the Sydney Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

His first CD release Things are looking up(2003) received positive reviews from Australian and US publications. Soup’s Gone Bad his second release (2011) showed a progression to include more original songs alongside the vintage blues but all played with great spirit and humour.

For his current release “I Asked for Water” O’Connor has enlisted piano professor Don Hopkins, harmonica ace Jim Conway and Marcus Holden on mandolin. It shines a light on the work of some of Chris’ favourite blues artists, such as Tommy Johnson, Charley Patton, Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe, Blind Blake, Tampa Red and Georgia Tom. Putting his own stamp on these songs his enthusiasm for the material really shines through.

Sun 28th April 4 - 7pm

Free admission.

Nicola Hayes and Hélène Brunet have been making music together for more than 15 years, criss-crossing Brittany and abroad from café, to bar, to concert hall, carrying with them in their backpacks their unique blend of Irish jigs and reels, Cajun two steps, and Old-Timey breakdowns.

Nicola’s own special “austral-irlando-cajun” fiddle style and Hélène’s laúd (Spanish 12-string lute) groove together to draw listeners into a world of seldom-heard traditional tunes, gleaned from master musicians, or rediscovered on old cassettes, unearthed in dusty drawers… between tunes, they delight in sharing stories about musicians, parties, love…life stories! First album, Travelling, 2011. Their second album, The Inner Indian, recorded live in Australia & Brittany, was released in 2016.

http://duonhhb.wixsite.com/duonhhb/

"Hélène Brunet and Nicola Hayes are free. Headstrong – strength of air, soul, of mother and earth - Somewhere between the blues, the tradition of everywhere and nowhere, and the insolence of the present. If “folk music” means something, it's when they play." Cécile Even

Lou Bradley on tour

Live Music with ' Lou Bradley ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sun 31st March 4:30 -7:30pm. 

Free admission.

I am the artist, singer song writer Lou Bradley. I am a girl, in case the name threw you. I was born in Avalon Sydney, Australia and moved to the hills of Mullumbimby on the far north coast of NSW in 2000 after my sister passed and a I realized that life is too short to not follow your dreams.

I have played music forever. When i was four years old, singing Marcia Hines songs into a cigarette lighter to a bunch of drunk English men on a train. I left home when i was 15. I moved to Redfern Sydney with my fellow band members at the time and we played in pubs all over Sydney. In those days I learned how to be a band mamber, groupie, booking agent and band manager! I sat in and had meetings with record comapnies. from the age of 18.

Michael Menager Trio

Live Music with ' Michael Menager Trio ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 30th March 4:30 -7:30pm. Free admission.

The Michael Menager Trio was born at Cobargo Folk Festival 2017. Sam Martin (guitar) and Michael Menager (vocals, guitar) signed for the festival as a duo. But at Sam’s last-minute invitation, Dan Efraemson (violin) - from Malumba, a World Music band that Sam also plays in – jumped up on stage. And so it began.

Menager’s lyrics cut along a philosophical edge, his rhythms and melodies cut across the spectrum of bluegrass, folk and blues, and his stories cut through the inner landscape of a poet and traveller – and all of this is framed and embellished by tasteful improvisation from Martin and Efraemson.
