Singh and Blanes kick off a great weekend of music at Kew Court House
The program commences at 4pm on Saturday 14th May with Singh and Blanes. Duo Parvyn Singh and Hue Blanes (The Bamboos and The Melodics) sing timeless love ballads that cross musical continents and cultures. Singh plays Indian instruments, both the sitar and the tanpura, to accompany her lush voice as she sings in English and her native language Punjabi, while Blanes' rich baritone and accomplished piano compositions completes the sound.
At 6pm, nine-piece orchestral folk outfit Talulah takes to the stage. Offering elements of jazz, folk, rock and cinematic influence in their music, Talulah will demonstrate why their debut album The Flood has received critical acclaim.
Nine-piece group Talulah always put on a great show
Don't miss Ella Hooper's performance at 8pm. Performing the music from her most recent EP, Venom, the Killing Heidi founding member travels a raw journey of heartache.
The quality acts continue on Sunday 15th May.
At 11am, the program commences with Sublime Flights, with 'music inspired by the birds' for cello and vibraphone. Cellist Caerwen Martin and percussionist Elissa Goodrich will ease audiences into Sunday with poetic morning song inspired by the trills, tweets and voices of birds.
Melbourne musician Natalie Carolan takes to the stage at 2pm. Described as simultaneously exhibiting the qualities of being understated, vulnerable and powerful, Carolan will share music from her yet-to-be released string of singles (produced by Colour Bomb frontman James Saunders) and collaborative album recorded with Luke Howard and Leonard Grigoryan.
