Sevenfold, favourites at Bridgewater Arts Centre, are playing with us as part of The Fringe on Fri 19th and Sat 20th Feb 2021. ‘Connie’ (Youtube below) is an example of one of the ‘front’ singers, Liz Dyson. Sevenfold are a six piece local Adelaide band who clearly can’t count. Fusing rock, folk plus rhythm & blues and blending rich harmonies, strings, drums and guitars- they play a mixture of original songs and covers. Sevenfold have recently released their new CD “Dreaming in Waves” featuring 12 original songs.
Leigh is a singer-songwriter coming out of the folk tradition, writing in secular and Christian contexts and singing around Australia. Leigh has been joined by Freya, Keeley, Erin, Skye, Chris, Jasmine and Tanya (3 gens) for family weddings and funerals, and this is their debut public performance. The family members have sung and recorded with a range of choirs, including Adelaide fine music choir Lumina (Chris and Skye) and touring internationally with Adelaide Chamber Singers (Chris).
Sevenfold is appearing at Bridgewater Arts Centre on Friday 28th Feb 2020, 7:30pm. They appeared at the Arts Centre in early 2019 and continue to write and perform around SA. Sevenfold is an eclectic 6-piece band of local, seasoned musicians that performs a lively acoustic/electric fusion of rock, folk, rhythm & blues. They perform a mixture of original songs and quirky covers.
Rustflower bring to life the stories and characters of Australia, (and the occasional love song), wrapped up in catchy melodies and harmonies. A feature of Rustflower is the shared song writing and vocals by Pete and Kerrie Arthur, giving Rustflower its great diversity. Pete’s earthy voice and story-telling style sits well in the camp of other Australian story tellers like Paul Kelly and Shane Howard. With insightful life observations, Pete sees life from a new angle and colour.
Two more SA acts at The Bridgewater Arts Centre. Sept 14th! 7:30pm Spring will be upon us and there will be a need to recover from cabin fever and reconnect with the world after some biting and wet wintry days. Come build community, meet other music lovers, meet the musicians and be amazed at what can be achieved with creativity and practice. There is never enough music in the world and we can always fit more people in the audience.
