After an awesome start to our Sound Doctor project, we are back in 2018 – bigger and better than ever!
Anglesea has such an appetite for great music that we’re starting the season off with a weekend of two great Aussie artists. On Friday 23 March Double J Artist of the Year Jen Cloher and her band will rock the Memorial Hall stage. On Saturday 24 March the divine vocals of Ainslie Wills (ably supported by members of her band) will be the headliner. Pick the artist that best suits you – or broaden you musical horizons and see both!
We’ll be announcing some great support acts in the New Year too.
The final Sound Doctor Presents gig for the year sees the beautifully ethereal dark folk of Leah Senior alongside the alternative folk-rock stylings of Forever Son (aka Jack Robbins).
Leah’s Senior second album Pretty Faces pays homage to her folk roots while hinting at pop and psychedelic undertones. Forever Son’s heartwarming music draws inspiration from Crosby Stills Nash & Young and Fleet Foxes. In the intimate surrounds of Anglesea Hall these two stars will truly shine.

The wait is over… we are very excited to announce that Clare Bowditch will be the next guest artist for The Sound Doctor.
Shows are on Fri 15 & Sat 16 Sep and tickets are on sale now!
Following the huge success of our first concert in May, The Sound Doctor Presents crew is pleased to announce another great show in September at Anglesea Memorial Hall. With so many people missing out on the Lisa Hannigan experience, this time we’re giving you two chances to be a part of it all. But remember, these concerts are intimate events with limited tickets available so they will sell out!
Known to many as the host of Afternoons on ABC Radio Melbourne, Clare is a singer, sometimes actor, speaker, writer and creative-business mentor. She’s had Top Ten albums, been named Rolling Stone Woman of the Year (Contribution to Culture), toured with Leonard Cohen, written for Harper’s Bazaar and the Drum and played in nearly every venue, festival and truck stop in Australia. Now she’s heading to Anglesea for two solo shows on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September.
Clare will serenade audiences with her heavenly voice, performing favourites from her five studio albums as well as a taste of some of the more than 150 songs she’s written since then (and is trying to whittle down for a new album!). Combining lush melodies and sparkling vocals with a true sense of fun, Clare will beguile audiences with her whip-cracking banter and open-hearted ballads.
Supporting Clare for these very special performances will be new generation Indigenous Australian artist Yirrmal, originally from North-East Arnhem Land but for the past six years a Geelong local. An inspiring songwriter and guitarist with a beautifully powerful voice, Yirrmal fuses the traditional and the contemporary to create stunning songs about his homeland and culture.
Don’t miss what promise to be two incredibly memorable nights of music in Anglesea – Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September.
Tickets are $45 and are on sale now.
