Australian String Quartet : Close Quarters
Saturday 29th May | 11 am – 12 pm & 1 – 2 pm
Come and burn the midnight oil with us (a few hours before midnight) in the charming 1884 heritage-listed Old Kerosene Store that is now the Kidogo Arthouse.
The Kidogo Arthouse is a beautiful, bustling independent art centre located at the water’s edge at Bathers Beach in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Our Close Quarters series takes chamber music out of the concert hall and into smaller, charming and intimate spaces. Get up close to us and the music, as we play movements, excerpts and selections of music that is currently under our fingers. It’s a varied and unpredictable musical journey that can shift and change on the whim of the Fremantle Doctor!
The bar will be open so come early or stay a while for a drink and some banter.
Mark Wilkinson – Handpicked, Vol.3 Tour 2021
Sunday 6th June | 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Mark Wilkinson announces ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’, the newest instalment in his much loved acoustic series. Available worldwide from Friday February 12th, it continues the tradition of showcasing his songs laid bare, in their most raw and honest form.
It’s a sentiment fans around the world know well, whether they’ve seen Mark on stage, just a man and his guitar, or if they’ve come to discover him through his first two volumes. The original Hand Picked endeared him to tens of thousands with ‘Middle Ground’ broadcast on television throughout Australia and New Zealand. Volume two’s ‘Everything to Me’ found millions more with regular radio rotation across the US and Canada.
Now ‘Hand Picked, Vol. 3’ brings that same intimacy. Recorded on a farm in the NSW Southern Highlands, each song captured as a live take with one microphone, the natural setting of the surrounds adds a beautifully unique sonic texture.
To celebrate the release Mark will be returning to the road, crossing open borders after a long absence, sharing songs from the new album along with many other favourites. Restrictions may mean numbers will be limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
