the Tiger Lillies (UK) The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. This unique “anarchic Brechtian street opera trio” tours the world playing songs about “anything that doesn’t involve beautiful blonde girls and boys running at the meadow” to quote their founder Martyn Jacques. Always with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony, their music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. The Tiger Lillies shock, amuse and entertain in a postmodern vaudeville way, with their inimitable in-yer-face shows, where no limit should be taken for granted. “Fun, scintillating, impudent, achingly beautiful” MADDY COSTA, THE GUARDIAN NOMINATION GRAMMY: THE GOREY END BEST CLASSICAL CROSSOVER ALBUM

Their music is a deep and powerful mix of original Gypsy and East Mediterranean folk music inspired by the beautiful culture and natural landscape of Israel. “A Sumsum performance is a rhythmic banquet, both sweeping and intimate, integrating songs in different languages which warm the heart, enthusing even the most reserved audiences to get up & dance.”

2014 Louis McManus the Royal Jellies Memorial Concert (Australia) Featuring THE PURPLE DENTISTS AND SAOIRSE

(Australia) No-one has captured ‘the heart and soul’ of the Brunswick Music Festival more than Louis McManus. The Annual Louis McManus Memorial Concert will feature legendary Brunswick band The Purple Dentists, joined by the dynamic Celtic/folk quartet Saoirse to celebrate the music and friendship that we all shared with this local legend. “People loved to hear Louis play because he expressed his life in every note. Intelligence and wit informed everything he did from telling a joke to playing a reel. There was no funnier or more acerbic observer of the human condition.” DAN BOURKE PURPLE DENTISTS

A consummate eight-piece Melbourne band delivers a sound that is brash, brassy and infectious; neo-vintage, modern-dapper songs textured with horns, Hammond, banjo and stride piano. Hot on the heels of recording and touring with Clare Bowditch, the Jellies now present a beautifully crafted album drawing on the styles of Louis Armstrong, Biz Beiderbecke. C.W. Stoneking and Tom Waits. A sepia-toned homage to the polyphonic sounds of an era when jazz was king. “A rambunctious Dixieland affair of jazz, raucous rhythms, mystifying melodies and glorious grooves. The Royal Jellies really know how to get a crowd going” RIP IT UP

Friday 14 March 8pm Brunswick Uniting Church $22

Miles & Simone MIKELANGELO MILES O’NEILL and SIMONE PAGE JONES

(Australia)

Dear friends Miles (Junkyard Band, Suitcase Royale) & Simone (The LoveBirds, A Company of Strangers), sing straight from the heart. Acoustic duets subtly augmented by an old piano, pedal steel and the plunk of a banjo are set in the folk/country tradition and maintaining at their core an Australian feel, both in the lyrics and laconic style, telling tales of the things that were, the things that weren’t and everything in between. “Pure love…a divine musical collaboration”

& the BIG MOUTH CHOIR IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ANGELS

(Australia) Award winning singer and performer extraordinaire, Mikelangelo performs his favourite hymns and gospel songs unplugged and acapella. With neither microphone nor band, Mikelangelo will unfurl his remarkable bass baritone, making full use of the beautiful acoustics of the church before Stephen Taberner and the Bigmouth Choir joins him for a magnificent finale.
