We’ll take you from the Baltic fields of Latvia, via West Africa, through a fusion of folk, blues, gospel, with some pop thrown in for good measure.

Join us on either Sunday 16 August or Sunday 23 August at the Brunswick Mess Hall for a joyful journey around the world.

Doors open at 2 pm. Tickets will sell fast so buy yours now!

Adults $20, concession $15 and $5 for kids over 5.

Festival of Hope

On World Refugee Day, Moreland City Council and Amnesty International are hosting the Festival of Hope: a celebration of the contributions and benefits that refugees make to our society, explored through performance, visual arts, music and education.

A Celebration of Women in Song

What’s better than listening to four fabulous women’s choirs on a Sunday afternoon? When it’s free, of course!! We are performing this Sunday, 31 May as part of Winter Music in the Valley, an exciting series of four concerts in Moonee Valley.

Live at the Wesley Anne: Worlds Above and Worlds Below

Hot off the heels of our sell-out Spotted Mallard performance, we’re taking this show to the Wesley Anne on Sunday 19 October for the Darebin Music Feast.

The stellar repertoire has something for everyone: from a Paul Kelly classic, to a Ben Harper anthem to a Latvian song of revolution.  Some of our new members will join us for their debut performance.

So if you missed tix to our Spotted Mallard gig, book now for the Darebin Music Feast encore!

When: 3 pm, Sunday 19 October

Where: Wesley Anne, 250 High St, Northcote

Tickets:  $20 / $15 / $10 for general admission.
