Spring Sounds at Sunset
Brisbane Powerhouse is filling its performance lawn with free jazz, blues, folk and world music tunes for three spring nights.
There's something particularly enticing about spring in Brisbane. The baking summer heat hasn't arrived quite yet, the flowers are in full bloom and we all just want to spend all our time outdoors. And, between Friday, November 12–Sunday, November 14, Brisbane Powerhouse also happens to be livening up your spring by hosting three nights of free sunset tunes. Yes, that's how you make the most of the season.
At Spring Sounds at Sunset, you'll listen to jazz, blues, folk and world music, all while getting comfy on the riverside venue's performance lawn. This is the kind of afternoon shindig that calls for packing a basket, grabbing a rug and gathering the gang. You'll need to sort out who brings what to eat, of course — but Brisbane Powerhouse will take care of the music.
On the lineup: Tibetan Australian artist and composer Tenzin Choegyal on Friday, joined by folk singer LT, and a collaboration between jazz ensemble Trichotomy and alt-country singer-songwriter Danny Widdicombe; Dusty Miles singing the blues on Saturday, alongside jazz vocalist Kayleigh Pincott and world music ensemble Cigany Weaver; and Indigenous R&B musician Chris Tamwoy on Sunday, as paired with the Balkan and Mediterranean sounds of East of West, as well as Hussy Hicks.
Spring Sounds at Sunset kicks off at 5pm on the Friday and Saturday, and at 3pm on the Sunday.
