Tuesday 24th November
— Merriwa Acoustic Music Club (monthly, 4th Tuesday)
We have a little different learning song next time, a country western classic by George Strait. I’ll send out more information and song sheets soon.
As an extra heads-up early warning, because of Christmas our December MAMC will happen on Tuesday, 4 December.
Keep on strummin’.
There is something just so good about people sitting together and sharing songs or poems or stories. Our new venue is at Jenolan Way Community Centre. It is bigger, has a kitchen, and perhaps will allow us to have even more options for our events. Anyway, I do indeed hope you can attend and start our new place and day off on the right chord.
The focus of this club is sharing acoustic music together, growing creatively, and later perhaps performing community service. Acoustic instrumentalists of all levels, ages, and styles (folk, bluegrass, acoustic rock, etc.) are surely welcome and encouraged. Poets, dancers, singers, story-tellers also welcome. Generally the format will be a sing-around the circle with everyone getting a chance to add a song or performance. Then learning a new song together.

Friday November 27th
— ‘Riverside Live’.
The Denmark Riverside Club & JFly Entertainment present – The Wayward Earls
The Wayward Earls take the stage for the fourth concert in our highly successful live music series. These local legends who fair from both, Albany & Denmark are seasoned professionals with a unique performance style and an innate ability to connect with their audience. It’s another not to be missed show. Join this versatile and talented group of entertainers with our emcee, James Flynn.
Ticket available online at www.ticketebo.com.au/riversidelive Also available at the Club or phone James on 0437644476 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Wayward Earls are:
Rod Vervest (guitar), Peter Grayling (cello), Bob Lipinski (vocals/harmonica), Dave Rasstrick (valve-trombone and banjitar /vocals).
Rod Vervest (aka the Earl of Spencer Street) picked up a guitar in 1972 and has never put it down since. Seduced by the sound of six strings, he successfully avoided “normal” life for an abnormal one of 80’s/90’s clubs, bars and pubs learning the trade from the grimier side whilst most of his musical friends studied and became seriously great jazz musicians. Nevertheless, driven by the notion that it’s really easy to play guitar…badly… he persisted and is determined to keep improving despite the onset of age, creaking joints and a continued fascination with a wayward lifestyle.
You may have heard Dave Rastrick’s roaming sounds – a trumpet drifting through forests or along the riverbank. Rastrick has waywardly wandered an eclectic course of musical discovery, from the streets, through university halls and literally hundreds of bands. With a trumpet specialty, this musical octopus aurally juggles a selection of unusual instruments such as valve-trombone and banjitar.
Bob Lipinski (or Count Lipinski, the Earl of 8 Mile Hill) has mastered the art of taking a wayward note and bending it into shape, both vocally and via his lunchbox full of tin sandwiches! Years of musical storytelling makes him feel right at home in the fine company of “The Earls”.
Peter Grayling had been playing the cello for seven years when he first heard The Blues. It took a few more years to realise that playing music should not be limited to playing every crotchet and quaver written down by someone with funny hair who died centuries before, and to earn a living playing music in a big room with a hundred others, all being bossed around by a bloke waving a little white stick. So he took up the mandolin, which meant he could play standing up and even walking around, and extended his cello playing to include flying by the seat of his pants and making up the notes as he flew. Wayward fun.

We will also have the supper at the break but this year we will be serving people due to The Virus. As such we ask you to bring a plate of food that can be easily picked up with tongs, there will not be any self serve so please no dips etc.
It has been a crazy mixed up year and this night promises to carry that on with very talented and experienced performers getting together. Don’t miss it.
We have a maximum number of 50 as per City conditions and chairs will be spaced accordingly. Please do not squeeze up or move the chairs around, we need to keep aisles clear. If we reach capacity we will be turning people away.
Please bring your own sanitiser if possible. We will have some but the more the merrier.
Please note the start time for this month will be 8pm (doors open 7:30pm)
Admission will be $10 ($8 for WAFF members).

26 February – 1 March 2021
— Nannup Music Festival 2021.
We’re on! We are feeling so excited and so relieved to be gearing up for Nannup Music Festival 2021, our 32nd year. I’m sure you are feeling as excited as we are and ready to have some quality time together, listen to some fantastic music and immerse in a wonderful weekend. It’s been a strange few months since we were last together and it really feels a blessing that we get to share in some joy and wonder again.
Programming felt strange this year, no idea if we would get to go ahead, nor who would be able to join us, so the focus has been a full Australian line up, with a strong WA collection (just gotta say, how great is our music here in WA?). There are some great acts from outside of WA who are feeling hopeful to be able to join us, this – just like everything these days – could potentially change at any moment. So let’s just keep an eye on the borders and if they can come, how awesome that will be. However, if not possible, there are many incredible acts still hopeful to join us, so we will be able to announce a second lineup release. For now, please check the website when we go live on the 1st of November to see the wonderful mix.
There will be some small changes to 2021, but luckily it’s looking much the same as what our festival is known and loved for. Your safety and comfort is our focus; we will be accommodating any changes needed so that we can all pop into a weekend of discovery, a bubble of love. To see a glimpse of the world we once knew, to again celebrate together feels like a dream.
Here’s a glimpse of some of our awesome WA acts:
CARLA GENEVE, SIOBHAN COTCHIN, JACK DAVIES, VERGE COLLECTION, THE FLOORS, TOM FISHER & THE LAYABOUTS, THE NOMADICS, THE JUSTIN WALSHE FOLK MACHINE.
Ticket sales open on november 1st
Due to no cover for pandemics and the fear we all have of another shut down, we have set the tickets to be 90% refundable if we have to cancel due to Covid-19. This cancellation retainment is only Covid-19 related and only if unavoidable; our primary concern is that we are all safe. You will be assured of a 90% refund. The 10% that we retain will be to ensure contractors, artists, etc, are paid their needed retainer – if not their full contracted rate.
More info and pricing soon.
Stall Applications: Food and market stall applications open on 9th November 2020 and forms will be available on our website.
Volunteers: Volunteer applications for the 2021 festival, will open in December.
