Pop your Maple leaf on and come and celebrate Canada Day with our own Canadian Shawn Lidster and also the Sugar Mountain band. Sugar Mountain is a band that plays tribute to the music of Neil Young.

 

They are a full 5-piece band of seasoned muso’s, including:

Shawn Lidster – vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica

Brandon Smith – b/vocals, banjo, fiddle, electric guitar

Greg Flynn – pedal steel, electric guitar

Dave Woods – b/vocals, bass guitar

Paul Novosel – drums

With Canadian singer/songwriter Shawn Lidster out front their sound is authentic.

 

They cover the music of Neil Young from his days early days with the Buffalo Springfield and Crosby Stills Nash through the Stray Gators to Crazy Horse.

 

BLUES JAM

2 BUCK BLUES BAND

Sat July 8th @ 7:30pm

The Two-Buck Blues Band are masters of a genre that few musicians explore these days. We call it Cool Blues.

 

Blues with a bit of humor. With a bit of a jazz influence, sometimes a touch of country and rockabilly.

 

TOP CAT JAM

Sun June 11th @ 2pm

 

DAXTON MONAGHAN

Sat July 15th @ 7:30pm

His familiarity with rock/blues has shown punters there is more to him than just a song. Daxton stage performance has character and bellows confidence.

As a cover show artist you will be blown away by his guitar playing and vocals.

 

JAM WITH Pat and Vanessa

Sun Jun 18th @ 2pm

 


 

THE DEW CATS

Sat July 22nd @ 7:30pm

JAM WITH ROB WHITING

Sun Jun 18th @ 2pm

 

BANDDITTS

Sat July 29th @ 7:30pm

BANDDITTS was conceived from the brains of Jordan Fleming and Bryce Gleeson.

After stints in bands together for many years, the two drifted apart and formed their own separate projects. They settled into life working in bottle shops and bars for a while before reuniting years down the track and realising that this was not living. That was it. They quit those bartending and bottle shop jobs and BANDDITTS was born.

Now, the two frontmen are nothing but committed to writing, playing and experiencing.

COMPETITION WINNER TAKES CENTRE STAGE


Olivia Bell, winner of the 2016 Concerto Competition, will take centre stage in Symphony Central Coast’s Spirit Unleashed concert on 25 June. The competition is held every two years and is keenly contested by emerging orchestral musicians as a chance to show their virtuosity. Olivia was born and bred in Ourimbah, studied at the Central Coast Conservatorium with teachers Chris Bearman, Suzanne Borrett, Olena Zaporozhets and Peter Garrrity, and is now attending the Sydney Conservatorium.

Olivia won last year’s competition with a piece for viola written by her father, Adrian Bell, who is a professional cellist, teacher and composer. The viola, Adrian says, “is an unsung hero, an instrument that is able to merge, balance and sympathise.” On June 25, Olivia is performing Rhapsody-Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, written by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů. This work was written during World War Two while Martinu was working in Paris. He was unable to return home because of occupation so he wrote this piece to express his longings for home. The piece is very rich in melodies; many are Moravian folk tunes and the work ends with a prayer for the future.

Dr Steven Stanke, conductor of Symphony Central Coast, said, “We’re really looking forward to working with Olivia again. Her performance last year to win the competition was outstanding. She had such a personal connection with the music and performed with great maturity.”

Also on the program is Beethoven’s uplifting and energetic Seventh Symphony and Emil Reznicek’s jaunty overture to the opera Donna Diana.

Spirit Unleashed. Central Coast Grammar School, Arundel Rd, Erina Heights.
2:30pm, 25 June. Tickets at the door or http://www.symphonycentralcoast.com.au.
