Band to play Druid’s Hall

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page -

Live mu­sic is com­ing to Witch­cliffe tonight and later this month.

Alt-coun­try act Sally & Ge­orge take over Witchy’s Druids Hall tonight from 7.30pm.

The band fea­tures Grammy Award-nom­i­nated bassist Shelby Means and gui­tarist Joel Tim­mons, who will be bring­ing their stripped-back set to res­i­dents for $20 at the door.

On Oc­to­ber 26, ac­claimed multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist and folk mu­si­cian Chris Nor­man beams in from Canada to show­case tra­di­tional Celtic mu­sic, in­clud­ing co- lo­nial tunes from his na­tive Nova Sco­tia.

Sup­ported by other mu­si­cians, Nor­man’s cat­a­logue in­cludes the Celtic flute, Scot­tish small­pipes, and singing, while other mem­bers con­trib­ute more pipes, harp and fid­dle.

Nor­man made waves record­ing mu­sic for block­busters such as Ti­tanic and Ir­ish feel-good movie The Stone of Destiny.

His South West tour was two years in the mak­ing.

“Chris’ ver­sa­til­ity and vir­tu­os­ity ex­tend from the record­ing stu­dio to the stage where has had led and part­nered with some of the world’s most re­spected mu­si­cians,” pro­mot­ers said.

“He main­tains a busy sched­ule as a solo per­former and tours as a duo with vi­o­lin­ist David Green­berg and his epony­mous group.”

Tonight’s show with Sally & Ge­orge was lauded as mov­ing “from rol­lick­ing, elec­tri­fied rock­ers to stripped-down, gauzy reflections on love and faith”.

Doors open to both gigs at 6.30pm with BYO nib­bles.

More in­for­ma­tion from Karien Rollinger on 0437 781 711.

Joel Tim­mons and Shelby Means per­form tonight in Witch­cliffe as duo Sally & Ge­orge.
