Small num­bers but rave reviews

Isis Town and Country - - News -

DE­SPITE the low attendance rate, the Fes­ti­val of Small Halls was a rag­ing suc­cess.

Star­board Can­nons got the show on the road with a range of great tunes but it was the duo’s ban­ter that helped cre­ate a more re­laxed, homely at­mos­phere.

They were aided by the Paragon The­atre’s out­stand­ing acous­tics, which both Star­board Can­nons and Cana­dian Adam Brown raved about dur­ing their hour-long sets.

While Star­board Can­nons, from Mul­lumbimby in north­ern New South Wales, set a jovial mood with their ban­ter and boppy tunes, Brown drove the night home with a num­ber of pow­er­ful songs.

Much of Brown’s set list was writ­ten about a lost love so the lyrics had an emo­tional edge but even then the Cana­dian man­aged to leave the crowd de­mand­ing an en­core (which he de­liv­ered and com­pletely owned).

Those that were at the event of­fered only pos­i­tive feed­back and most hung around for a chat or photo with the per­form­ers.
