Emily Barker Returns – Sunday 25th November

We are all very happy that Emily returns to us for a repeat performance. At her last visit, the audience all loved her work and called for more. This time Emily will bring double-bassist Lukas which will be an added bonus.

Since her last appearance here she has gone on to bigger and better things. Emily has now composed the music for two films in addition to having written and sung the theme music for the British/Swedish TV show Wallander – enormously popular, particularly in Britain.

Early this year Emily was awarded the Artist of the Year for the UK Americana Awards – it has a huge following in the UK. The Americana genre draws on country, roots-rock, folk, gospel and bluegrass to become a style of its own – whatever, we like it.

Tickets must be pre-purchased – no door sales.  Email Vince & Judy at: themusicshack@gmail.com

Gallie – Wednesday 12th September 2018

One of the highlights at the Fairbridge Music Festival back in April was Darren Gallagher, known far and wide as Gallie,



Gallie packed them in at each of his performances and the audiences were not left wanting.

Originally from Ireland but now living in Melbourne, Gallie sings a range of his own songs and also some great cover music.  He is ably supported by the brilliant guitarist/mandolin player, Paddy Montgomery.






Gallie and Paddy are on a short West Australian tour and we’re very pleased they have included the Music Shack and will be here on the evening of Wednesday 12th September 2018


It will be an indoor house concert event so seating is limited and it is selling quite quickly following our Newsletter advice to our regular guests.

As usual there are no door sales and a pre-purchased ticket is necessary to gain entry. Full directions are included with the ticket but our venue is midway between Boyanup and Donnybrook and about 20 minutes from Bunbury.

Tickets can be obtained by emailing:  themusicshack@gmail.com or by phoning Vince or Judy on 9731 2004

Beautifully Mad

The Music Shack is very pleased to once again host Beautifully Mad, the great duo from Canberra. Set the date aside and order tickets now  –  Saturday 20th January 2018


They performed for us last January out at the Thomson Brook Church when we co-hosted with Lonsdale Hire.  It was a great performance as everyone there would testify but the seating was limited so many of our regulars missed out.


This time they’ll be in the open air at our usual Music Shack venue so we will have more room but you can be sure it will sell out so best to get in early.

Tony King and Nina Vox are Beautifully Mad, two of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters. ARIA Award winning Tony King was named Australian Songwriter of the Year 2009 and Best Lyrics at the International Songwriting Awards 2014 judged by Tom Waits & Bernie Taupin. Nina Vox is an award winning songwriter and ex-actor, who performed with Russell Crowe and trained with jazz legend Kerrie Biddell.mw_blue_promo

Those credentials become quite apparent when you hear them perform and following their last performance we probably had more positive reports than ever before – they were really entertaining and people appreciated it.

Tony and Nina are not only great musicians, they’re thoroughly nice people and exceptionally talented. The whole evening will be fun and full of good music and of course you get the chance to mix and chat with them.

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

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.
