Ukes for Breakfast in the Park this Australia Day

The Northern Rivers Uke Orchestra (NRUO) will be leading songs in the Housie Tent at Brunswick Heads again this year for the annual Australia Day celebration – Breakfast in the Park, 7–10am. Indigenous Australian artist, government adviser and former football player John Kundereri Moriarty is this year’s Ambassador and will be dropping in to address the crowd at around 9am.

This is a great FREE family event. Bring your uke as the chords and lyrics of a bunch or great Australian tunes will be projected on the big screen for a joyous singalong.

Modern Aussie uke

This Australia Day evening, Thursday from 6.30pm, Miss Amber and Stukulele are presenting two sets of Australian songs – BUT… only songs released in the last 20 years. ‘Modern Australian’… (can you think of five off the top of your head?) Joining them will be Uke Mullum’s traditional Australia Day guests – Sara Tindley and Ash Bell plus local youngsters 100 Words, Dan Brown on keys, Jason Caspen on drums and Al Brooker on bass. Always a brilliant family night out. Bring your uke or just watch the show and sing along. Entry: Adults $12.50 and Youth $5 (6–15 yrs)

Club Mullum (Mullum-Ex-Services Club), 58 Dalley Street, Mullumbimby.

Stephen Lovelight at the Rails on Wednesday

Leave the light on

Stephen Lovelight is a prolific songster, having written five albums of psychedelic, melodic rock and taking out Studio 301’s Artist’s Development award for best Sydney songwriter in 2007. He has played in all the usual venues in Melbourne and Sydney as a solo performer and fronting his band Dizzy Limit. Recently he has been getting deep into the sound of the South, plunging the licks and riffs of the blues greats: Robert Johnson, Skip James and all the folky and rock artists they influenced. His approach to finger style and slide blues guitar is a kind of tribute to the gritty and honest origins of all that he loves about popular music.

At the Rails on Wednesday.
