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’s back to share her mellow, soulful, country, folky, jazzy songs in venues in Melbourne & at festivals.

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 presented music sessions to children for 20+ years. She currently creates music therapy & choirs in Aged Care.

Brian Norris plays bass and guitar. 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.

These 3 seasoned performers collaborate to perform originals and favourite songs by others. Splendid harmonies, some happy sing-a-longs and soulful stories, you’ll love Cadabria!

 Suzette Herft

Soulful, sublime and shining! Three words sum up this Melbourne based, exotic singer-songwriter from Sri Lanka.

Suzette Herft is a contemporary troubadour and award winning songwriter with a sublime voice. She shines with a natural grace and presence that lights up any stage. Her live performances captivate the audience and she has been described as ‘charismatic… with her heart in tune with her world’ (The Australian Songwriter – Australian Songwriters’ Association).

When Suzette sings, she invites the listener to dive deeper into the heart of what it is to be human and the grace to overcome life’s obstacles. She turns the looking glass onto her own life with lessons of finding joy from sorrow and distilling the light from the darkness. Her music is indeed medicine for the soul!

Suzette has won wide acclaim for her brilliant tribute show to her hero – Joan Baez for being the ‘voice for the voiceless’ at numerous festivals around Australia, including standing ovations at recent Port Fairy Folk Festivals. With her band, she has recently breathed life into the songs and the story of Emmylou Harris – another performer she admires.

Suzette is also masterful facilitator of singing sessions and a ‘song catcher’ with her wide-ranging repertoire and her passion for inclusivity, ‘giving everyone a voice’. Suzette is passionate about songwriting and inspired by a visit to Nashville, she founded the Melbourne Songwriters Guild. She has been a regular songwriting tutor at The Lake School for Celtic Music and other community groups.

I always love hearing these performers sing and play, it’s always a great night
