I'm a freelance writer living in Perth. I enjoy gardening and films. I have appeared in several local short films.
Live music for free
The Perth Folk and Roots Club meets every fourth Sunday of the month, at the Mount Lawley Bowling Club. The music you hear can be a variety from folk to blues to country.

This art deco building, situated on Rookwood Street at the corner with Storthes Street, is a ideal intimate setting for the music to be performed.

Performances are from 5.00pm till 8.00pm with three different sets usually performing.

The next performance is on Sunday 28th February with special guests Katey Brooks and Rick Steele.

Katey is currently on tour from England. Some of her shows include the Glastonbury Festival, WOMAD Festival and several other European Festivals.

She has also been a support act to Newton Faulkner, Mercury nominee Lou Rhodes, Mike and the Mechanics, and Grammy nominees Cutting Crew.

She has also featured on BBC Radio 2 Children in Need album 'Bandaged Together', recorded at Abbey Road with artists such as Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones), Nick Mason (Pink Floyd), and Paloma Faith, and other compilations.

Katey recently released a brand new EP. The 'I Fought Lovers EP' is the follow up release to her debut album 'Proof Of Life' which reached No.1 in the Amazon Folk chart along with favourable press reviews and BBC Radio 1 and 6 airplay.

Rick is a well known local blues musician who has been playing in Perth for over 30 years. Since arriving in Perth in 1976 he has been delivering his mix of blues and country all over WA and also nationally and overseas. He has played in numerous bands including his own band the Hot Biscuit Band. He has released a large number of recordings as well.

This is a free event with ample parking onsite.
