The Rhythm Hut’s celebrates 4 years in Faunce Street
with a giant birthday party featuring Ash Grunwald!
It’s another historical moment in The Rhythm Hut history, as we celebrate a milestone 4 years in our space in Faunce Street, Gosford. The Hut’s birthday party is our biggest event of the year and on the 19th of August we will welcome Ash Grunwald as headliner, supported by local legends, Rhythm Hunters, Tullara, a DJ and of course the fabled Rhythm Hut drum circle. Dinner, drinks and desserts will be available on the night and The Rhythm Hut is an all ages fully licensed venue within a 2-minute walk to public transport – including trains, buses and taxis.
In 4 years the Hut has seen substantial changes, the first of which was the addition of walls and roofing to the then abandoned building. In its current state the Hut is a multi faceted cultural hub. The Hut hosts everything from music and yoga classes, through to creative workshops, book launches, film screenings, fundraisers and of course, huge live music events featuring National and International acts like Nattali Rize (Blue King Brown), Tijuana Cartel, OKA, Wes Carr, Wild Marmalade, Katchafire, Melbourne Ska Orchestra and more.
Headliner, Ash Grunwald has been praised for his guitar playing and creative blend of blues and roots for over a decade. Taking cues from classic bluesmen such as John Lee Hooker, Grunwald brings his sound into the 21st century with modern rock and soul influences and a hat-tip to contemporaries such as John Butler. Ash has been nominated for 5 ARIA Awards, 2 APRA Awards and stormed crowds at Bluesfest, Falls and Woodfood Folk Festival. Ash returns in 2017 with his new single ‘Hammer’ that gives a taste of his upcoming album.
Rhythm Hunters are a dynamite force in the world of roots music, known for their frenetic drum choreographies and infectious dance grooves, fusing physical percussion, western horns, Asian flute and electro beats, making them one of Australia’s most exciting festival acts. Drawing influence from Australasia and Indonesian cultures Rhythm Hunters traverse genres including world, folk, electronic. 2017 will see them produced by Nicky Bomba, before touring Australia and Indonesia throughout the year.
23-year-old Australian singer/songwriter Tullara has quickly developed a reputation as one of the country’s brightest up and coming performers. Renowned for her guitar playing, her sound is raw and honest, yet complex and intricate. After winning Triple J Unearthed Spotlight Artist of the week she caught the attention and praise of John Butler who proclaimed “Tullara has a way with words and a way with that guitar. She’s a gifted artist just at the beginning of what looks to be a promising adventure ahead.”
