Darren Hanlon

Tuesday, 24th March

Door @ 7.30pm

Show @ 8.00 pm

 

Darren Hanlon returns to the Street Theatre with his brand new album 'Where Did You Come From?' in tow. It's been 4 years since his last proper release but it's been worth the wait, with this new collection of songs a dazzling and vibrant experience, some of them already proving live favourites. 

The album was conceived during an epic adventure in the American south, recording songs in New Orleans, Memphis, Muscle Shoals, Nashville and Clarksdale, with an array of musicians he met along the way. From legend instrumentalists of popular music Spooner Oldham (Neil Young, Bob Dylan etc), David Hood (Aretha Franklin etc), Howard Grimes (Al Green) to talented unknown buskers and street musicians he just stumbled upon, Hanlon has woven a richly conceived collection of songs steeped in southern Americana but still penned in his inimitable idiosyncratic style.

To present them to you Hanlon will bring his band to the Street Theatre on Friday the 27th March.

London Klezmer Quartet

Saturday, 28th March

Door @ 7.30pm

Show @ 8.00 pm

 

The London Klezmer Quartet, an all-female band, are innovators and have emerged as leaders in the international klezmer scene, presenting a heady mix of traditional and original melodies that is the celebratory and soulful music of pre-war Jewish eastern Europe. They take audiences on a Jewish Odyssey from Eastern Europe to Australia via the Balkans, Turkey, the US and London. Their traditional sound evokes a fervour and joy reminiscent of the Jewish minstrels who kept people dancing, crying and laughing in the ‘shtetls’ of eastern Europe for hundreds of years, where they were the essential ingredient at every wedding celebration.

They have their audiences dancing in the aisles, and are described by Frank London, of the Grammy Award-winning Klezmatics, as “four of Europe's most talented klezmer musicians. They are great performers and teachers and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and excitement to their performances". According to Songlines magazine, their latest CD (Butterfield Green, N16, January 2013) has  “A fantastic sound with inventive arrangements, virtuosity, exciting original tunes and soulful playing.” The UK Sunday Times said: "The tradition is safe in the hands of the next generation." 

The band’s winning combination of exuberance, passion and accomplishment has proven popular – within a year of its formation in 2009, LKQ was being booked by leading UK world and folk music promoters - Songlines Magazine, Kazum, Continental Drifts and The Magpie’s Nest, swiftly becoming festival favourites.

About the band:

Ilana Cravitz (violin) - based in London (UK)

Susi Evans (clarinet) -based in  London (UK)

Carol Isaacs (accordion) - based in London (UK)

Indra Buraczewska (double bass) - based in Melbourne (OZ)

The Audreys ’Til My Tears Roll Away VINYL TOUR 2015

The Audreys are a folk-rock band from Adelaide. You probably know them, they've released four albums, won a bunch of awards and toured all 'round the world. There are two of them. Taasha sings and plays tiny guitars and keyboards and Tristan plays normal-sized guitars and doesn't sing. Sometimes, they tell goofy stories about when they used to be married. They don't need an excuse to hit the road, but as it happens they want to celebrate the release of their 2014 album "'Til My Tears Roll Away" on vinyl. Come celebrate with them, who knows what you’ll be in for…

Sons of Sun

Saturday, 18th April

Door @ 7.30pm

Show @ 8.00 pm

 

Much like the famous Sun Records label itself, the Australian rock and roll play, Sons of Sun – Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny and Me has become the little music dream that roared. In two years this play travelled from its debut at the humble Sandringham (Sando) Hotel in Newtown, Sydney to sold out shows and standing ovations at the Sydney Opera House. Sons of Sun is a musical play about Sun Records, Memphis, and the famous artists that started their careers there. Sons of Sun returns to the Clarendon on Saturday 18 April.

 

Told through the character of its founder Sam Phillips, his assistant Marion Keisker, and the famous musicians that Sam recorded, this Australian show features a three piece live band fronted by Sydney musician John Kennedy, performing thirty-five songs from Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison and many more.

 

The tenacious Sam Phillips is played by Sydney actor, Matt Charleston, with co-stars Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine taking on multiple roles from Sam’s assistant Marion Keisker to Howlin’ Wolf. Sydney’s weekly The Music magazine described the show as, “An impressive troupe of professionals developing a rarely heard narrative with enthusiasm and simple creativity.”

 

The show seamlessly blends the narratives and songs to produce a compelling, original and heartbreaking blend of rock’n’roll theatre. Kennedy, of Love Gone Wrong fame began developing the Sons of Sun idea in 2011 with the release of his Sons of Sun Vol 1 CD. Award winning Melbourne playwright Kieran Carroll (The Giraffe’s Uncle, 3XY OR I DIE!) has written an accompanying script to Kennedy's beautiful renditions.

 

Written by Kieran Carroll from an original idea by John Kennedy

Directed by Louise Fischer. Originating Direction by Neil Gooding

Starring Matthew Charleston, Victoria Beck and Ben Maclaine

Music performed by John Kennedy, Steve Broughton and Murray Cook
