myself, Jane and Mr Soundman, Chris were playing at a do in Mundaring called
Habits of Horses. Later we, as well as
Kevin and Halina, were listening to this youngster as she played something
recent (like that last year). Then
something a bit older. Then some Crowded
House and then some Beatles. Expressing
my astonishment at the breadth of knowledge in one so young, I was exhorted by
my colleagues to invite her to play, which she accepted. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my privilege to
present Jaylyn Bonnet.
in the day when spare time was less of a foreign country I used to frequent
Wanneroo Folk Club, wherein I met one Jamie McKinnon. Actually I’d met him before. Jamie plays a heap of Trad Irish and Scottish
folkie stuff. A great supporter of the
Irish Club in Subi, Jamie is one of those great musos that makes clubs sing!
at a Pub with Halina watching an act we both agreed would be great at the
club. The pair seemed oddly familiar,
and Halina said, “that looks like Jesse Woodward”. The penny dropped and we chatted for a while
and we extracted an agreement to play.
Jesse Woodward and Hannah Blass play as Braud and Beau (and played for
use several years ago). They play some
wonderful music, both be multi-instrumentalists with beautiful voices. Actually Jesse played his first gig at
Mundaring, those of you with long memories might remember the Lazy Railway.
on the bill are a truly amazing duo of singer songwriters, none other than Rose
Parker and David Hyams. Rose has
recently released a CD (there was a launch at the Fly) and she and David were
busy promoting it and will bring it up to us.
Rose has been playing for a long time, the earliest I remember being the
Velvet Janes in the nineties. David, of
course, features in the amazing Miles to Go band and has been with us in that
guise, and also with Rose. This pair
gives a consistently excellent performance.
