Kick back at Clink ses­sion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

KICK­ING back at the Clink The­atre with friends while lis­ten­ing to some ex­cel­lent mu­si­cians is surely one of the best ways to en­joy the glo­ri­ous sur­rounds of Port Dou­glas.

And it’s set to be­come even more en­joy­able with the third in the se­ries of court­yard mu­sic to be staged at the Clink next month.

The gig will high­light two great acts, Sydney based “Snez”, an es­tab­lished artist and presently tour­ing the re­gion and sup­port act Sim­ply Deb, a fe­male singer/ song­writer play­ing man­dolin and harp.

Event or­gan­iser, lo­cal mu­si­cian Frank Frikker, said that hav­ing ac­cess to a harp player was un­usual.

“This is quite rare and so we are a bit ex­cited to have some­thing very dif­fer­ent this time,” Mr Frikker said.

“And Sim­ply Deb is a great lady and a great per­former and we are sim­ply glad to have her come and en­ter­tain us.”

“Snez” has just re­leased the first sin­gle “Green” from her sec­ond al­bum 8 Lives Left To Lose through iTunes. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing wide praise for her de­but al­bum ’Gypsy soul’ (2009), she has spent the past two years tour­ing Aus­tralia with her co-writer, pro­ducer and gui­tarist Ste­wart Peters, squeez­ing their world into a van for months at a time, vis­it­ing re­mote and re­gional Aus­tralia while shar­ing sto­ries and songs.

Ku­randa based singer/song­writer Deb­bie Robin­son (Sim­ply Deb) has a Celtic feel to her mu­sic which is rooted deeply in her Ir­ish her­itage.

She is also an ac­com­plished man­dolin player as well as be­ing a great Celtic harp player.

She is self taught af­ter pick­ing one up at a garage sale.

The show will start at 6.30pm on Sun­day, Au­gust 5, and the bar opens at 6pm. Tick­ets are just $10 and can be bought at the door on the day.
