Thursday Bohemia Bar 7.30-10pm Welcome Singing Session – we are hosting the concert; we’ll sing a few songs to start and invite other performers. Although it’s a staged venue with PA, we’ll try to make it like a folk club as possible

Monday Troubadour 3.30-4.30pm Hard Yakka – “Songs of Australian working life” – a mix of traditional and well-crafted contemporary songs telling of people at work – convicts, factory workers, drovers, timber getters, sailors, shearers, farmers, miners and piece workers. A themed presentation with slides.
