Tim Finn’s White Cloud at the Art Centre Melbourne

By Tim Finn and Ken Duncum with film by Sue Healey

“Salvage something that we need to remember From the wreck of history
Family images of fading splendour
Where they lead I’m following…”

– Tim Finn, White Cloud

Tim Finn, legendary New Zealand singer-songwriter, member of Crowded House and founding member of Split Enz, will perform White Cloud – a musing meditative performance about family, identity and home – this January at Arts Centre Melbourne.

White Cloud alchemises observation and contemplation, photographs and journals, narrative and music to deliver a potent celebration of family, ancestry and what it means to be Pakeha (a Māori language term for New Zealanders who are of European descent).

Through songs and stories, Tim introduces us to family members past and present, whose voices echo through journals, letters and memoirs – matched by dreamlike imagery drawn from 8mm home movies shot largely by his father, Richard Finn.

An inspired collaboration between Finn, leading New Zealand playwright/screenwriter Ken Duncum and video artist Sue Healey, White Cloud has moved audiences and critics alike in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and the UK.

“We always envisaged White Cloud as an immersive experience, not a narrative in the traditional sense. More a series of impressions of people, places and our family backgrounds, which together tell a larger story,” explains Duncum.

A richly textured blend of beautifully melodic music and poetically evocative prose brought to life in the intimate confines of the Fairfax Studio, this inventive reflection on the lives of families growing up in New Zealand, loosening ties to the UK and encountering Maori culture is not to be missed.

ANNOUNCES AUSTRALIAN ALBUM TOUR +

SHARES COMING OF AGE LIVE VIDEO

Her brilliant debut album, ‘Don’t Let The Kids Win’ captures a talent in its first thrilling bloom

The Sunday Times

Every now and then you hear a new voice and little else seems to matter. Julia Jacklin’s is one such voice

– The Guardian

  She’s set to have a stellar 2016

Consequence of Sound

It is with great excitement that Julia Jacklin announces her return back to local shores this November, ready to embark on her most extensive Australian tour yet. With the release of her masterful debut LP, Don’t Let The Kids Win just around the corner (Oct 7), the 12 dates will see the rising star from the Blue Mountains grace several cities for the first time. Supported by triple j, the national album tour will bring Julia’s intimate songs to life as she sets out to allure audiences in her largest rooms so far.  

Julia + band are currently in the middle of a huge global tour that includes performances at some of the world’s major festivals including the UK’s End Of The Road and Electric Picnic. She’s also sharing stages with buzz acts, Marlon Williams and Whitney, plus playing headline shows in London, Dublin, Berlin Rotterdam, NYC and LA just to name a few. 2016 has already seen Julia acquire praise from performances at SXSW and The Great Escape, which projected her onto the world stage and lead to international record deals with Liberation, Transgressive and Polyvinyl Records.

The charming beauty bestowed within Julia’s rich voice and unique storytelling has seen her songs, Coming Of Age, Leadlight and Pool Party added to radio playlists across the globe, receiving strong support from triple j and community radio, plus Radio 1, BBC 6 and Apple Music UK, who named her their ‘Best New Artist’ of the week.  

As we await Julia’s arrival with open arms, we can view a beautifully poised live performance of her current single, Coming Of Age. Filmed by Mushroom at her sold-out Melbourne show in July, it’s a charming insight into her entrancing live show.

THE HEARTACHE STATE & DRAUGHT DODGERS

nick-barker-draught-dodgers

THE FLYING SAUCER CLUB

Friday 7 October – 8PM

The Flying Saucer Club are super excited to have two outstanding bands hit our stage this October. Nick Barker and The Heartache State blew audience members away at their last show with us earlier this year. Joining them on stage and making their Flying Saucer debut are St Kilda’s latest super group, the Draught Dodgers.

Nick Barker and Justin Garner have been playing together on and off for 10 years – Nick producing Justin’s band Southpaw’s debut album and Justin playing on Nick’s last solo record. The last 18 months have seen them hunched over acoustic guitars hammering a bunch of ideas into songs. Justin loves the Allman Brothers, Nick loves the Replacements, so the self-titled album of their new project ‘The Heartache State’ is a collision of sorts. Adding long-time friend and collaborator ‘VENOM’ on drums and Michael Hubbard (Downhills Home, Eagle and the Worm) to the mix, The Heartache State was recorded live and quickly with friend Shane O’Mara producing at his Yikesville Studio.

web1_nickbarker_artist2015-900x440

Straight out of the swamps of St Kilda, the Draught Dodgers have been making a name for themselves touring all over town. Described by lead singer Jack Davies as “the demented love child of Beefheart, the Cramps, the Stooges, the Stones and the Easy Beats” audiences are expected to get up and sweat just as much as the band does.

The band features a respectable rock ‘n’ roll line up with Tim Rogers (guitar), Mick Sayers (bass) and Evan Richards (drums). ‘”All of our respective bands have crossed paths in some way, shape or form. It was Dr. Rogers who decided to form a brethren of complete legends. They’re all super talented and an absolute joy to play music with.”’ says Davies.

Need a fix of some quality live blues/rock from not one but two rockin’ bands? Then this show is for you! BOOK YOUR TIX TODAY!

Doors: 6pm (Seats/Dining), 8pm (GA) – Showtime: 8.40pm

Harry Manx

Canadian Harry Manx brings his own genre, often referred to as the ‘Mystissippi Blues’– back to MEMO  on Friday 16 September.

His mesmerizing sound is an organic fusion of eastern musical traditions with the Blues.  The result is an expressive, moving and unforgettable new world.

His unique toolbox is a fascinating range of conventional acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, harmonica, stomp box, and the Mohan Veena, created by Harry’s Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.

HARRY MANX (CANADA) 

Across Australia – September – October 2016

Harry’s real skill lays in creating a rare musical place where blues, country, folk and Indian classical music co-exist as some spirit force”.  Downbeat

Harry Manx has been one of the most successful international touring musicians ever to grace stages in Australia.   Returning in September and October for over 30 concert dates, this deeply original multi-instrumentalist has entertained audiences in more than 10 extensive tours since 2001.

The explanation is simple.  Harry’s created his own genre, often referred to as the ‘Mystissippi Blues’.   His mesmerizing sound is an organic fusion of eastern musical traditions with the Blues.  The result is an expressive, moving and unforgettable new world.

His unique toolbox is a fascinating range of conventional acoustic and electric guitars, banjo, harmonica, stomp box, and the Mohan Veena, created by Harry’s Indian mentor Vishwa Mohan Bhatt.  His award-winning songs ‘create musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas’.

A worldwide festival favorite, Harry’s 13 albums and ceaseless touring have seen him earn a slew of Maple Leaf, Juno and Canadian Folk Awards, nominations, and accolades from musicians and fans alike.

“Watching Harry play tonight I feel like I learned something new…….”

Bruce Springsteen, @ the International Guitar Festival, New York City

In February 2013, Harry’s 20-stringed Mohan Veena, was stolen from an airport carousel in Chicago.   By the next day over 3 million people and the AP news service had spread the word and put Harry and his little-known instrument on the world map!  Global relief ensued when police found the culprit and Harry was reunited with his Mohan Veena.

 

February 2014, saw the release of Harry’s 12th studio recording – ‘Ohm Suite Ohm’.  It features Harry’s ‘Bollywood electric slide guitar’, instrumentals, original songs, a cover of John Coltrane’s ‘A Love Supreme’, plus guest vocalists and international collaborators.

And in 2015 prolific Harry released his newest album – the acclaimed “20 Strings and the Truth”, a mostly instrumental album that pays homage to his beloved Mohan Veena.

Harry will be accompanied by Sydney-based pianist Clayton Doley for many of the dates.

About Harry Manx

Harry forged his distinctive style by studying at the feet of the masters, first as a sound man in the blues clubs of Toronto during his formative years and then under a rigorous tutelage with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in India. Bhatt is the inventor of the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Harry’s signature instrument.

Harry played slide guitar for many years before meeting Bhatt in Rajasthan, in fact he had been living in another part of India for many years already, but he started at the beginning under Bhatt’s tutelage, unlearning most of what he knew about playing a slide instrument.

He learned Eastern scales and eventually ragas, deceptively complex and regimented musical patterns that form the basis of Indian composition. Learning the voicings of Indian music is a subtle art that comes with time. Harry spent most of twelve years in India learning that.  It was later on that Harry decided to explore the connection between Indian ragas and blues scales which eventually led to the Indo-blues hybrid that has become his style.

Born on the Isle of Man, Manx immigrated to Ontario with his parents when he was a child. He started working with bands as a ‘roadie’ at age 15 and gradually worked his way up to becoming the regular sound man at the well-known Blues club  El Mocambo in Toronto. There he worked with a slew of blues legends. Harry admits that blues is still at the heart of much of his work. “I’ve always had one foot in the blues from those days … what I got from those artists is a groove. That’s what I’m particularly interested in is the groove, and that’s the way I play blues”.

“I went to Europe when I was 20 and started making money as a busker,” recalls Manx. “I’ve worked mostly as a musician since then, though I did some theatre work for a while. I was a one-man band with a drums and a cymbals for a time too. It was really a lot of fun.”

Manx’s time in India has imbued his music with an intangible spiritual quality “the song reveals who you are, it’s the vehicle for your message, your inspirational ideas or your story,” explained Manx. “Like many people I’m interested in my own development as a person and that’s represented in my songs, I’m searching for truth through art and spirituality.  My songs are a synthesis of everything I’ve absorbed, all my experiences and I share that. I’m glad that it means something to people.”

“Indian music moves a person inward,” he explains. “It’s traditionally used in religious ceremonies and during meditations because it puts you into this whole other place (now, here).

But Western music has the ability to move you outward, into celebration and dance. There are some ragas that sound bluesy, and there are ways to bend strings while playing blues that sound Indian. I may be forcing the relationship between the two musical cultures, but I keep thinking they were made for each other. That leads me to more and more experimentation. The journey has been great so far.”

Blending Indian folk melodies with slide guitar blues; adding a sprinkle of gospel and some compelling grooves, that’s the sound that Harry lays down. It goes down easy and leaves you hungry for more.

THE VERY ROUND ROBIN feat. GALLIE, ROESY & REBECCA BARNARD

Flying-Saucer-Header

 

The Flying Saucer Club is proud to host The Very Round Robin this September.

The concept behind The Very Round Robin is as simple as it is endearing. Now in 2016 for their first combined tour of Australia three incredible song writers have come together; Rebecca Barnard, Roesy and Gallie. Each with their own style, sensibilities and approach to songwriting and storytelling.

The honest and stripped back nature of the show gives the audience a personal insight into the background of each song smith’s creation.

Irish born Gallie has been travelling and performing all over the world for over 15 years and now calls Melbourne home. His 2015 album
‘Occoquan River’ has received high praise from media nationwide and features Melbourne Songstress Liz Stringer on backing vocals.

Award winning singer-songwriter Roesy has been touring his new album ‘Wolf Counsel’, launching at last year’s Port Fairy Folk Festival to a standing ovation. Roesy’s melodies have the presence to seem familiar while remaining distinctly his own; impossible to ignore or dismiss.

One of Australia’s finest singer songwriters Rebecca Barnard adds a certain class to this trio. A versatile jazz vocalist, Rebecca grew up in a legendary Jazz family with her renowned drummer father, Len, his brother, Trumpeter Bob, and their bands. With a career spanning almost two decades, Barnard has evolved into a versatile and wide ranging performer in her own right.

If sitting around a campfire listening to stories and songs is your thing then this is the warmth you are looking for, book your tickets today.

OTHER NEWS…

ROSS HANNAFORD…
We considered Ross Hannaford to be a big part of the Caravan Club family for the past 4 years, with his regular Sunday afternoon shows alongside the Critters and many other shows he was involved in. His quirky front of stage character, exceptional guitar playing, as well as his lovely personable nature made Ross an inspiration to all the people that worked with him and to the audience the played to. MEMO Music Hall in conjunction with the Caravan Music Club feel honoured to have hosted his benefit shows last year which contributed to much love and support in the last few months of his life.  We are very sad to see Ross go, but very pleased to have known him.  We’ll miss you Ross…

Dear Memo Music Lovers,

What a brilliant summer of music we have had thus far!

Last Sunday arvo’s show was simply superb as Kate Ceberano sang up a storm and left audiences mesmerized! We can’t wait to have her back here in March to wow us all over again.

This week sees MEMO open its doors to the public for a special OPEN DAY as part of the St Kilda Festival. There will be a variety of artists performing live from 12pm, a mouthwatering selection of drinks available at the bar and a cool, laid back vibe where you can enjoy a Sunday arvo of cool tunes, plus it is FREE ENTRY! Taking the MEMO stage on the day will be; Greg Champion, Mia Wray, Edible Pets, Tanya George, The Foldbacks and Leticia Maher. It’s time to KICK BACK, RELAX, and ESCAPE THE MAYHEM with an icy cold beer or wine, so round up your friends and come celebrate the festival with us!
