Kindness on rise in Ballina and beyond

A community battered by natural disasters and COVID is still finding room in its heart for refugees and asylum seekers, according to Ballina Region for Refugees Vice President Stanley Yeo.

Tim Stokes and Garrett Kato, two local music heavyweights, are going head to head, with coveted Sydney artist Jessamine, this Friday in the Backroom at The Great Northern. Tim Stokes continues to ride high since launching MeXico the album, with flowing accolades and national recognition received for his bounce-along blues and roots tunes. Stokes’s latest film clip for the track Ride On is a finalist at the weekend’s Byron All Shorts Festival.

Garrett Kato, originally from Vancouver, Canada, has been winning the hearts through the ears of many music lovers with his stripped-down folk country.

Jessamine has achieved more than many dream of in her career spanning well over a decade. A front woman in her two previous bands (Nitocris and The Fyreflies), she took them both to stage at The Big Day Out along with national and international touring.  In 2011 Jessamine launched her self-titled solo album.

Friday 9pm at the Backroom, The Great Northern and Saturday at Flickerfest, A&I Hall Bangalow.
