Andrew Morris, Lou Bradley and Jimmy Dowling with Chris Costello and Hailey-Marie

This Saturday will be show number four for the North Coast Song Sessions.This time the setting is the cosy and timeless Coorabell Hall on Coolamon Scenic Drive.

These engaging and intimate showcase performances have gained serious momentum since the inaugural event in June. In the humble and historic community halls that nestle quaintly throughout the region, the Song Sessions are the perfect opportunity for music-lovers of all ages to experience the handiwork of some of the country’s most talented singer/songwriters.

Held on the first Saturday of each month, the Song Sessions travel from hall to hall, with three top artists sharing the stage together, along with their thoughts, stories and, of course, their songs.

The September show features yet another three of the very best, going song for song, with The Wilson Pickers’ frontman Andrew Morris, bluegrass mountain music siren Lou Bradley, and one of Australia’s most revered balladeers, Jimmy Dowling. Getting the night rolling will be frontman from local band The Bowls Club, Chris Costello, along with Byron Bay surf/skate/songstress Hailey-Marie, each performing a short set of original material.

If you love great music and a great night of creativity and community atmosphere, don’t miss this show

As usual, great food will be available, with Bangalow BBQ’s notorious Southern-style smoked ribs, along with Crabbes Creek’s famous Woodfired Pizza. Feather & Lace Creative Cakes will be on hand with tasty treats and homemade chai. Tea and coffee are complimentary, but BYO all other drinks.

Doors open at 5pm, show starts at 6.

Entry is $15, kids under 12 are free.
