BASSMAN AND THE GURU
Sunday 14th May, 2pm – 5pm 
Free Entry & Family Friendly
What a way to treat Mum on her special day! Incredible live music and scrumptious food from Harry Hardy’s.  A bit of jazz, a bit of blues, a bit of rockabilly, and a story!
The Bassman was one of the most sought-after session players in New York. The Guru (now ex-guru) was one of the world’s best-known teachers of peace and mindfulness – until he was invited up on stage at Jerry Lee Lewis’ birthday party in Memphis and discovered a higher calling as a blues singer. The keyboard and drummer are two of Australia’s most in-demand studio musicians.
JEFF LANG

Friday 19th May @ 8pm

Acoustic finger-picking, slide guitar, electric lead, banjos, mandolins and blue-eyed soul singing drop into place like puzzle pieces in a portrait conceived and executed almost entirely by the artist.

TIM ROGERS
Friday 26th May @ 8pm

Whilst You Am I are bogged down in negotiations about a new group haircut Tim Rogers has recorded his seventh secessionist recording “An Actor Repairs” and pleads for your attention as he once again confuses hubris for artistry.
For your affection he will be playing songs from twenty-eight years of recordings with accompaniment by extraordinary musicians who should know better. This is an 18+ event.
THE DECK SESSIONS featuring “BROADS” 
Sun May 28 @ 2-5pm
Free Entry & Family Friendly
Kelly Day and Jane Hendry (both of Melbourne vocal gals The Nymphs) have a shared love of face-melting harmonies and murder mysteries. They bring these together in their new project ‘Broads’, which delivers a new, slightly criminally-minded take on the acoustic folk duo.
