The Co-Op Club
Sun June 1: Tina
Harrod & band
Award winning vocalist & writer Tina Harrod will be playing some
sweet, funky, soulful music from her own albums and from some of her
favourite artists. Featuring Hamish Stuart on drums, Alex Hewetson bass
& Gavin Ahearn on keys.
…”Harrod gives you goosebumps...it’s as if she’s singing about the last
night of life..” John Shand SMH
Sun June 8: Brendan
Brendan Gallagher's a unique musical incarnation…singer,
multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, performer & troubadour
of the world with the band Karma County over 6 albums. Brendan’s career
spans over 30 years & he has played on recordings for artists from
David Bowie to Kylie Minogue and produced many albums including Jimmy
Little’s instant classic Messenger.
At The Co-Op on 8th June he'll be
exploring new songs and old with drum legend Rob Souter (Dynamic
Hepnotics, Slim Dusty) and young WA guitarist Doug Nairn.
Brendan Gallagher is a fine musician but what’s clear from his latest
album Wine Island is his surpassing skill in the studio..pretty much
single handedly crafting an album that is as good as anything you’ll
hear this year..
..Jeff Glorfeld – SMH
