Spend a cruisy Saturday afternoon listening to acoustic songs and staring at Sydney Harbour thanks to Cockatoo Island's new music series. Until January 27, sunset campfire music sessions are coming to the scenic spot, as well as stories about the performing artists.
Venue 505 has curated the Campfire Sessions lineup, so you know you're in for an ace run of talent. January 13 sees Matilda Abraham take centre stage, followed by Wartime Sweethearts' experimental pop. On January 20, it's Darryl Beaton and Angela Rosero's time to shine, one offering up Aussie soul and the other accompanied by the guitar stylings Carlos Arango. Wrapping the series up on January 27 is Portuguese-born, inner west-raised Ines and the jazzy sounds of Lily Dior. Sets start at 5.20pm and 6.40pm during each session.
And, if the combination great music and gorgeous views gets your stomach grumbling, Mcintosh and Bowman Cheesemongers will be on hand with the essential staples — aka cheese and wine.
