Sway Swing Swagger Swoon
Lismore | Sunday 3 March | 2pm | Donation
After the great success of Mullumbimby and Nimbin Roots Festivals, Out of Range are off to Lismore for a one-off, intimate concert.
Born out of the English festival scene and raised-up on the dusty roads of Australia, Out of Range are smashing it with their irreverent, happy, upbeat, foot-stomping music. They like to call themselves genre-fluid and you can see why as they slide effortlessly from gypsy to balkan then jazz, roots and boogie… yet there is always something singularly ‘Out of Range’ about their sound. It’s unexpected, catches you by surprise and puts a smile on your face, infusing you with humour and a sense of fun.
STOP PRESS! This music may contain traces of accordion but we promise, there are definitely no banjos.

Club Mullum | Saturday | 8pm | $35
There’s something magic about Grace Knight’s stage presence – it’s no wonder she’s one of the most enduring talents in Australian music. With ARIA awards and nominations and chart-topping recordings in each of the past three decades, her career spans 40 years. Grace is one of the finest interpreters of popular music in Australia today.
She blew audiences away throughout the eighties as lead singer of the internationally successful band Eurogliders. As a solo artist she transformed herself from Pop Princess to Queen of Cool and lit up the screen in ABC TV’s award-winning mini-series Come in Spinner. A string of successful solo albums followed that saw her take on jazz.
In 2013 Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch reformed Eurogliders and have been touring since then. 2016 saw the release of Grace Knight’s eighth solo album Fragile – a departure from jazz with touches of blues, soul, and folk, that demonstrate her ability to effortlessly move across genres while maintaining her signature vocal style.
Grace Knight is joined by her band when she plays Saturday at Club Mullum, 8pm. Tix $35 at mullumexservices.com.au
