Simon and Tammy London – 10th March 2017

It’s all systems go for the 10th March concert with Simon and Tammy London from Torbay, down south.

dsc_1047-2We first saw Simon and Tammy at the 2016 Fairbridge Festival and they were hooking the crowds in. We caught them at Rubys Bar and that was lucky because we couldn’t get into the Chapel to hear them – it was bursting at the seams.

Simon and Tammy give a good range of folk/indi music with a good blend of country feeling – that’s natural, they both grew up in the country and that’s where they live.

The show will be outdoors at the Music Shack as usual.

No door sales and tickets only available by pre-order. You can email or use the “Contact Us” tab above   –  or you can phone Vince and Judy at 9731 2004.



Beautifully Mad – 15th January 2017

We joined forces with the new owner of the lovely old Thomson Brook Church, David Lonsdale, to host Beautifully Mad, the dynamic duo of Kris Ralph and Tony King from Canberradsc_8306-2 dsc_8330-2 dsc_8347-2.

What a great night – Kris and Tony are veteran professionals who know how to provide good music with a jam packed program that left the capacity crowd calling for more.

The evening started with a twilight barbecue where the crowd mixed easily. Some had come from many miles while others were from just around the corner. Thomson Brook Church is a bit ‘in the middle of nowhere’ – it has no water or power so everything for the evening had to be provided. Between us we managed that and it’s a bit lucky that David happens to own Lonsdale Party Hire in Bunbury – that made some things a lot easier.

It was nice to see John Thomson present. He’s the grandson of the people who donated the land and paid for the church back in 1909. Also present were old time identities, Sue and Ian, who were married in the church about 10 years ago.

Many people gave us positive feedback on what a great night it was and how good it was to see the church being used again for a community function.

Loren Kate

We’re very happy to confirm that Loren Kate will be performing for us at the Music Shack on Thursday 15th December 2016.

We saw Loren at Fairbridge and loved the show and we’re sure you’ll love her too.

It’s an indoor show so limited seating – first in, first served.  We can’t wait !!

Next Summer @ the Music Shack

We’ve got three great shows ready for next summer although we’ll have to hold the dates for a while yet.




Loren Kate from South Australia really impressed the crowd at Fairbridge Festival this year and we’re pleased that Loren has agreed to appear here in December.





DSC_1047-2More crowd pleasers at Fairbridge were Simon and Tammy London from Torbay, near Albany. They have also agreed to come early in the new year – gosh that’s 2017.





Finally good news from Canada – The Bombadils will be returning for another show here. Those that saw them last time will be delighted – a slight change in membership this time. Sarah and Luke are there of course, but the pocket rocket, Anh, has moved on. Her place will be taken by a cello player and the new sound is great.


More news on each event as they get closer.
