KHRISTIAN MIZZI

More than just a few have said with enthusiasm that Khristian Mizzi’s songs take them to a place they’d forgotten in themselves. With a warm, lilting voice and an art for weaving beauty and truth into the words of each song, Khristian Mizzi reaches the hearts of his audiences. His performances have been described as being ‘captivating’, leaving listeners feeling they have experienced something special.

Poetic lyrics, meandering melodies and a voice like a big warm hug along with a unique picking style, Mizzi really is a complete artist and is becoming renowned for his intimate performances and thoughtful songs.

Khristian has spent most of his life dedicated to his work as a songwriter and performer and has been performing as a solo artist for over a decade. He is a genuine music lover and this is reflected in his songwriting with an obvious drawing of inspiration from Leonard Cohen, James Taylor, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens and John Martyn.

In 2009 Khristian released his first EP (The Road Between) and has since become a mainstay of the Melbourne music scene.  His self-titled EP followed in 2017

Khristian Mizzi is fast becoming a favourite amongst Folk Music fans throughout Australia. In 2017 he was awarded the ‘Troubadour Artist’ of the year award at The Newstead Live! Folk Festival.More recently, he has performed as headline act at various Regional Concert Halls, House Concerts and has performed at numerous Festivals around the country where he continues to captivate capacity audiences.
His songs have had an overwhelming public response which continues to grow.

AND special guests on the night will be

Cadabria – a little bit of musical magic!

These 3 seasoned performers, notorious for their gathering over wine and feasting to play music, collaborate to perform Dayle’s originals and favourite songs by others.

Cathy Beckham loves harmony. She plays uke, guitar, and percussion and sings like an angel. Cathy has performed solo and with many musical combos: in pubs, cabaret, a bush band, at folk festivals, recordings and has written children’s songs and presented music sessions to children for 20 years.

Dayle Alison Walker is a singer/songwriter, plays piano and guitar. In early years was with Mushroom records, performed on TV shows, in cabaret, jazz piano bars and studio sessions. Returning to music after a long break, she met Cliff Ellery and the acoustic/singer/songwriter scene. You can hear her mellow, soulful, country, folky, jazzy songs in venues in town & at festivals.

Brian Norris plays bass, guitar, and fiddles with uke and mandolin. Originally playing in rock bands in England, he has been a member of various folk groups, including Triptych, since coming to Australia. Brian has played the big festivals and can be found playing at folk gatherings, performing with bush bands, flautists & on recording sessions.

Splendid harmonies, some happy sing-a-longs, soulful stories, and often joined by Cliff Ellery and other assorted music friends, you’ll love Cadabria!

For more than 40 years BOB FOX has been regarded as one of “the iconic voices” of British folk song. Deeply influenced by the working class culture and industrial folk song prevalent in his native County Durham he has become a first-rate exponent of storytelling through song.

A career that began during the vibrant “folk revival” of the 60s and 70s in England led BOB into regular and extensive touring throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand, firstly with fellow North Easterner Stu Luckley in their groundbreaking acoustic duo and later alongside such musical heavyweights as Ralph McTell, Richard Thompson, Jethro Tull and Fairport Convention.

Bob’s masterful interpretation of traditional and contemporary song combined with an outstanding guitar technique has also earned him countless nominations in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards over the years.

This is his “Taking On Men” from his 2006 album “The Blast” (it caught my ear…. what can I say)

Bob has long been a favourite on the live circuit both as a solo artist and in his many highly successful collaborations which include a duo with Billy Mitchell (Lindisfarne), the BBC New Radio Ballads series,

Don’t miss a chance to experience his warm, rich voice, virtuoso guitar style and newly acquired melodeon playing skill. Expect to hear songs of love, joy, work and humour as he performs material from WarHorse, newly written songs from the New Radio Ballad series and old favourites from his many recordings.

You can find out a bit more on his website  @  www.bobfoxmusic.com  or just book a couple of tickets, come along  and have a great night like I am going to.

Pete Titchener - 31st May 2019 – 31/05/2019 at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

ALBERT PARK PORT LOUNGE PRESENTS…

Pete Titchener – May 31 2019

5 Aquatic Drive Albert Park Lake (next to the Point Restaurant)

$25/$20 Cash at the door.
Doors open 7:30pm

What can be said about Pete Titchener that hasn’t already been read out in court?

Pete migrated from the UK to Australia in 1991 and has been a nuisance ever since.

It all started innocently enough when he joined a local (Adelaide) bush band.

One thing led to another and a few years later he joined Adelaide band Colcannon. Several international tours later the band called it a day.

Pete then started working with folk legend Eric Bogle.

Recognising that one day this bubble might burst he graciously decided to offer himself as a solo performer and allow the somewhat suppressed comedic side of him to step forward.

His mother’s next-door neighbour reckons “he’s quite good” – However, you be the judge.

This show will be a good one & will sell out quickly
