For the songwriters
The historic Ewingsdale Hall will host the second North Coast Songwriters Group Song Session this weekend.
This event will be an intimate, engaging and inspiring showcase of some of the most talented and cherished singer/songwriters from around the north coast – this month will get inside the songs and heads of Guy Kachel, Kyle Lionhart and Danni Carr from Mr Cassidy.
Guy Kachel has just produced his first album, Innocent Screams, a work of timely, mature introspection that reverberates with the sounds of his varied and manifold influences. There is the grace and soul of the blues interspersed with the country strains of his youth – and the tempering power of rock and roll.
Kyle Lionhart is a folk rock artist who has quickly gained a formidable reputation for stopping crowds in their tracks. So much so that he was invited to play at this year’s Splendour in the Grass music festival. Lionhart has shared the stage with legends Jeff Lang and Ash Grunwald, and played at the 2012 Byron Bay Surf Festival.
Danni Carr formally Sweet Painted Ladies and currently or Mr Cassidy is a formidable talent. No stranger to recording or the live circuit, Danni has recorded several albums and toured Australia and the USA.
Danni has carved a reputation as a dynamic and accomplished artist. She plays a mean harmonica, a wild guitar, has a voice that takes you to the intended places of her songs and lyrics that will have you thinking and maybe even crying.
All three artists take to the stage together to discuss and perform their songs in turn. Completely interactive and engaging, the audience is encouraged to ask questions of the artists and initiate discussion. With special guest performances by Luke Morris and Evelina Piga, this is a rare chance to see a fantastic range of great artists all in the one show.
The inaugural session was held last month at Kohinur and was an amazing and memorable experience for all involved. This show is sure to follow beautifully in its footsteps.
Plenty of delicious food, great music and wonderful community spirit. Doors open at 5pm. Show kicks off at 6. Entry is $15. Kids under 12 are free.
