Rustflower and Jacob Arthur

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.

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.
