Event: -
Each week on a Sunday at sunset, make your way to the Museum
RTRFM and the Western Australian Museum's free live music series "Harbour Sundays" returns to the WA Maritime Museum in 2018.

This will be the third time it has been presented and the second season was immensely popular - here you can get your "local fix" on Sunday nights at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle.

This event will be on for five weeks (every Sunday) and held on the Museum's balcony at Victoria Quay.

It will feature local music bands, DJs, there will be drinks to buy, and it is one of the better spots in Perth to watch our fantastic sunset in the west!

And best it of all, it is free!

The 2018 season will start off on Sunday 28th January with the following:

Delilah Rose and the Gunslingers
The folk-tinged soulfulness of the Kat Wilson Trio
Plus DJ Jas Hughes of Tuesday Drivetime

On Sunday 4th February the organisers are thrilled to have the talented singer/songwriter, Grace Sanders who is known for her production of soul music, as well as the amazing song-writing and soaring vocals of one of Perth's finest songwriters, Jacob Diamond.

Joining this fabulous line up will be one of RTRFM's longest-serving presenters and founders of the "Drastic on Plastic" programme, Lorraine Clifford.

On Sunday 11th February there will be the wide-ranging duo of musicians, spanning jazz to Cuban salsa. Join Human Contact the jazz concept band, led by WAYJO maestro, Alana McPherson, plus the Cuban magic of Cube De Son for some traditional Cuban salsa.

On Sunday 18th February, DJ Claude Mono from El Ritmo, will keep the music going with Perth's favourite troubadour, The Justin Walshe Folk Machine and they will take you on a storytelling journey. Joining them on this evening will be Racoo Charles and The Moke Folk, and they will entertain with their own version of folk/country music.

Sunday, 25th February will see the closing of the 2018 season, and on this evening you will be rocked by Rockin' The Roots', Tamara Szep who will be the DJ.

There will also be a huge party on this evening as Harbour Sundays finish this exciting programme, and you will hear the following:

Grace Barbe and Jamie Searle's other project, Crucial Rockers will be playing their sublime selection of reggae-tinged tunes
Boom Bap Pow will close things out with their neo-soul magic
Soulsides on RTRFM 92.10 DJ Foxman, will continue the party with his selection of 45 classics

Harbour Sundays will have some of the city's finest local musicians and this is an ideal way to spend a summer day, close to the ocean and at this iconic landmark!
