It’s been 491 days since we put on a show in Anglesea but we’ll be back on stage over three nights in March.
We can’t quite believe it’s happening (and let’s face it, in this current world of uncertainty we can’t be sure it actually will happen until we hit the stage on the night) but yes, we have a fantastic line-up planned. Direct links to tickets here. Read on for more about the lineup.
It’s probably easiest to describe C.W. Stoneking as a ‘blues artist,’ but the term disguises what makes his music special. There’s so much in there – a 1920s pre-war blues sound with almost equal helpings of New Orleans jazz, jug band music, hokum, country and calypso, and he’s lately brought in elements of jump jive, early rock ’n’ roll and gospel.
He’ll be supported on the night by local powerhouse Nathan Seeckts, a singer songwriter who effortlessly fuses the sounds of folk, country and blues delivering them with a commanding voice that is equal parts gravel and passion.
See C.W. Stoneking on Thursday 18 March. Tickets $55.
Melbourne artist Jess Locke is known for penning indie pop tracks that are at times subtle and full of melancholy, at times delivered with an acerbic tongue, but always steeped heavily in narrative. Her raw and honest storytelling and poetic inclinations have seen her heralded as pushing her way to the front of the pack of talented Aussie artists.
Over several years, dynamic six-piece Bones and Jones have emerged as one of Melbourne’s most exciting and energetic bands. The silky blend of swaying drums, roaring lap steel and driven organ paint the picture of the immense live sound they are so well known for.
An Evening with Emma Donovan & The Putbacks rounds out the Sound Doctor’s first weekend back.
Sound Doctor fans who saw Mission Songs Project will remember the incredible voice of acclaimed Indigenous performer Emma Donovan. We’re bringing her back to Anglesea with her band for a night of pure soul.
Emma’s songwriting is optimistic, impassioned and bruisingly honest. The music of Melbourne rhythm combo The Putbacks is fluid, live and raw. Together they burst on to the Australian scene in 2014, and the collaboration has won friends and admirers all over the world.
Support on the night is from star on the rise Kee’ahn. With a name coming from the Wik people, meaning to dance, to sing, to play, Kee’ahn aims to honour her name and Ancestors through her soulful music that weaves lush melodies and words reminiscent of heartbreak and healing.
Remember capacities for these shows are very limited so you will need to get in quick to secure your tickets. All gigs will be seated and you will only be able to sit with the group you book with, with an appropriate distance set up between you and the patrons around you.
