Kick back at Clink session
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.
