Emily Wurramara at the Hotel Great Northern

To inspire and empower

Hotel Great Northern, Byron Bay |  Thursday  |  6pm  |  FREE

Originally from Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory and now Brisbane based, while growing up Emily Wurramara loved hearing her uncles sing, but also realised that women from her community rarely sang in public.

Wanting to inspire and empower members of her community, especially young Indigenous women, to find their voice, Emily sings original music both in English and Anindilyakwa.

This year supporting the likes of Archie Roach, Dan Sultan, and Nahko and the Medicine People, Emily is touring her debut album Milyakburra.

Thursday at the Hotel Great Northern.

See Dosed at the Byron Bay Brewery

A dose of groove

Byron Bay Brewery, Byron Bay |  Friday  |  7pm  |  FREE

Dosed are a band from the Sunshine Coast hinterland that really do go way back. Since their inevitable emergence from the Jam Shed, their colourful mix of personalities create a contagious high-energy presence on stage. These guys are bringing back a shaken-up adaptation of 90s alternative rock. It’s stripped down to the essentials and has a similar sense of familiarity, but blended in with cleaner effects and elements of funk, punk, ska, and reggae. The result? Groovy, vibrant tunes and an undeniable allure to the dancefloor.

With support from Captain Squidlicker & The Sinking Ships plus Pauly P. See Dosed at the Byron Bay Brewery, Friday from 7pm.

Hetty Kate at Club Mullum

Hetty Kate

Club Mullum, Mullumbimby |  Friday  |  7pm  |  $20

Pure of tone, sweet sounding, and dangerously infectious, vocalist Hetty Kate’s voice is imbued with a natural musicality.

Not only an accomplished jazz vocalist with an effortless and unique voice, Hetty is a charismatic entertainer and is more than capable of capturing a crowd with her stories alone. You’ll immediately recognise her on a recording, and you’ll not forget her when you’ve enjoyed a live concert.

Originally trained in classical voice and piano, Hetty has spent the last decade travelling the world and singing in clubs and concert halls from New Zealand to New York; and counts her performance with James Morrison and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra for the 2016 Prague Proms as one of many career highlights.

You can catch her at Club Mullum on Friday from 7pm.

Stoker at the Hotel Great Northern

Psychedelically stoked

Hotel Great Northern, Byron Bay |  Saturday  |  9pm  |  FREE

Locally based experimental rock’n’roll trio Stoker bring you thunderous grooves and melting blues inspired by the likes of psychedelic 70s rock bands including Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, and Jimi Hendrix. Stoker’s high energy will grasp your attention with their explosive works of lead guitar, howlin’ vocals, cosmic drums, and ghoulish rhythms.

Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern.

Kathryn Jones at the Ocean Shores Country Club

Lazy Sunday with Kathryn and friends

Ocean Shores Country Club |  Sunday  |  1pm  |  FREE

This is a rare chance for locals to taste Kathryn Jones’s original material that has won awards across several genres of music including Celtic, world music, and country. Add multi-award-winning Music Oz/Golden Guitar recipient Steve Passfield’s original songs ranging from up-tempo Celtic to country swing and blues and it’s a very lazy day. Accompanying on fiddle is Mick Albeck and on bass Alan Brooker.

Get lazy on Sunday from 1pm. Ocean Shores Country Club.

Mosese Parker at the Byron Bay Brewery
