Trio hope to tug at your heartstrings
SOUTH Australian band The Beggars will be bringing their brand of acoustic harmonies back to Harvey next week with their show Sing From the Heart.
The Beggars will be performing at the Harvey Recreation and Culture Centre with doors set to open at 6.30pm.
Formed by Renee Stuart on guitar and vocals, Quintin Dunne on double bass, and Stuart Day on acoustic guitar, mandolin and fiddle, the group will be performing a selection of personal favourites which tugged at their heartstrings.
“We picked a whole bunch of songs that had an emotional connection with us,” Mr Dunne said.
“They’re either about family, friends, doing things you want to do or even melancholy and sad.”
The Beggars last visited Harvey in 2013 and have toured Europe and all over Australia including WA six times.
“Harvey is a lovely place and it’s good to come back there again,” Mr Dunne said.
Mr Dunne said the harmonies were a key part of the band’s sound with their repertoire covering a range of favourites including The Seekers, Dolly Parton, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Slim Dusty and Willie Nelson.
“That’s really at the heart of our sound,” he said.
While the band was formed 10 years ago, Mr Dunne said the band had been playing together for much longer and many of their own songs would feature in the show.
“All three of us sing and all three of us write as well,” he said.
The concert is held in conjunction with Seniors Week celebrations which runs from October 29 to November 5.
Tickets are available at $10 for concession and $15 for adults, or at the door for $25.
