The Duet, performing February 10th, have a very unique style of folk music featuring their own original songs and also some well known songs (with their own interpretations) by Adele and Amy Winehouse!

Greg Hastings is probably best known for being part of The Mucky Duck Bush Band and started early 70's often playing at The Stables Folk Club in Perth.

So if you like folk music with a twist head on down to the iconic Barrack Street Jetty this Sunday at 1230pm!
