Trio hope to tug at your heart­strings

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS - David Charlesworth

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.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to pur­chase tick­ets con­tact the cen­tre on 9729 3311.
