The Grenadiers, New Australian Folk, Debut EP Launch – Black Box Theatre, Saturday 2nd December, 7.30pm

The Grenadiers – Missy Jones & Elly Barrett – are a new Australian folk duo who are proud to be launching their debut EP, When Everyone’s Asleep. They will be joined by old musical friends and mentors Steve Cook, Jem Dunlop and Robyn Foley for an intimate evening of song, tune and harmony. Missy grew up in Nambour, so she is particularly excited to be kicking off the launch tour in her home town. Elly and Missy are children of the folk world, following their adopted music around the Australian folk circuit. They appear together by festival fireside or bar with ethereal songs – folksongs from the old traditions and fresh observations on the nature of the world, resonating with improvised harmonies, and sung a cappella or accompanied with guitar and fiddles. Though only officially formed a year ago, The Grenadiers have already supported the likes of Martyn Wyndham-Read, John Broomhall and Martin Pearson. Earlier this year they had the opportunity to go to the UK & Ireland, where they performed on the prestigious Open Stage at Orkney Folk Festival and at Matt Molloy’s own pub in Westport, Ireland. They recorded their debut EP When Everyone’s Asleep while in Sheffield, and have now come home to present it to you. 7.30pm, Saturday 2 December, Black Box Theatre $10/$7 at the Black Box Theatre door or from www.eventbrite.com.au https://www.facebook.com/thegrenadiersmusic/ https://thegrenadiers.wordpress.com/      ...

Regional Arts Plan Interactive Forum – Black Box Theatre, 2.30pm to 5.00pm, Tuesday 3rd October

This is an exciting time for arts on the Sunshine Coast. Sunshine Coast Council, in partnership with CQ University, is rolling out an engagement program to understand the needs of the regions arts sector. This conversation will inform the development of the region’s first Arts Plan. The Sunshine Coast council is creating something unique and rather special - A 20 year Arts Plan for Our region. This really is something that does not happen everywhere. For something like this to be a success it requires input from as many local people as possible!  If we work together what can we create that includes people from every area and strengthens the Arts where we live? Council have engaged a board of specialist practitioners to help them shape policies and visions. The Cultural Development team has also pulled together a small group of artists who have strong networks to consult with their peers. We are very pleased to let you know we are part of the ‘Arts Ambassadors’ team! We invite YOU to an interactive forum at Black Box Nambour, on Tuesday 3rd October from 2.30pm to 5pm, which is open to all artists. You can register on: https://www.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Experience-Sunshine-Coast/Arts-and-Culture/Arts-Plan to take part in the engagement program and be kept up to date with future opportunities in the arts on the Sunshine Coast.   Contact: Florence Teillet  0403 288 287 (with Glen Shepard & Delany Delaney)...
