Appearing This Month:

Our first act and newcomer Lucas Jones (guitar and vocalist), preparing to become a bachelor of Arts in Music gained initial performance experience fronting local folk rock band “These Winter Nights”.  Juggling band performance and studies, Lucas began concentrating on solo story telling in song resulting in his debut single “Beth” in 2016 and gained air play on Triple J Unearthed.  Now working towards the release of his first EP his songs and performances have been described as “a delivery of raw, heartfelt vocals, honest lyrics with a melancholic depth of love, life and loss.”  In other words, Folk Music.  In addition to his studies Lucas is busy working Perth’s venues attracting a dedicated following along the way.

Picking up his first guitar at 14, Jeremy Boyd (guitar  and vocals) has rarely put one down ever since.  Early 70’s acoustic styles of James Taylor, Cat Stevens, and the meanderings of Joni Mitchell were absorbed before embarking on what became a 30 year commitment to electricity and rock ‘n roll culminating in tours of WA and a band residency in Hong Kong.  Adapting new techniques and developing an impressive finger picking style to suit later inspirations his influences are best described as “across the board” although in the past 10 years Jeremy has reconnected with his roots and concedes “there is little more satisfying than contemplating life with an acoustic guitar on your lap”.
.....
Regarded as one of Perth’s more accomplished Blues Duos, cousins Dave and Brad Capper combine family ties, taste and personalities to present the unique sound of Two Trains.  Brad (vocal. harp and effects) is the inspiration behind their journey into the blues and receives acclaim for his outstanding “harp attack” tutorials and live performances.  While David (guitars and vocals) has appeared solo at Perth’s Blues venues and Bridgetown Festival, to pigeonhole the duo’s distinct mix of Americana, Old Time Gospel, Jazz and Folk as strictly Blues is contentious.  The two Trains last rolled into our station in 2015 so it is an overdue welcome back to our platform and a must see for harmonica fans.
.....

To close the show we welcome our final and second new act singer song writer Matt Cal (guitar and vocals). Matt has been part of the WA Folk / Blues circuit for may years collecting WAM nominations on his journey and Blues / Roots Song of the Year Award in 2011.  A Kalamunda resident, Matt has relaxed his own touring and recording schedule and now devotes time to family, writing for and producing 2 bands and local song writers as well as standing in on occasion with various line ups.  An RTR FM presenter with a Diploma of Sound Engineering, Matt’s performance promises “inviting, intimate, acoustic sounds with heartfelt vocals a-plenty”.  Ably accompanied by Matt Parker (keyboard) and Guisseppe Joe Renia (electric violinist) the potential for this evening is limited only by time.  
3rd Friday of the Month 7:30pm @ Mundaring Sporting Club, Coolgardie St, Mundaring, Western Australia
