Jackadder's Music Club

 

    Proudly sponsored by West Australian Folk Federation

JACKADDER'S MUSIC CLUB

Sponsored by the City of Stirling

On the 3rd Sunday of each month from 3pm to 5.30pm, the West Australian Folk Federation presents entertainment for the whole family at Jackadder’s Music Club in the Woodlands Reserve Hall, Teakwood Ave, Woodlands, Western Australia. Each month features a special guest artist plus quality support acts. It gives performers a great opportunity to network and connect with other musicians.

On Sunday 17th February we have a new venue for Jackadder's Music Club. It is the Community of Christ Church, cnr Lombardy and Elmwood St's, Woodlands. New start time: 2.30pm.

We have a wonderful line-up for our first Jackadder's show of the year with two guest performers.  Maria Forde from Vicotoria and Steve Turner from the UK.

As an Irish- Australian, Maria Forde has always straddled both sides of her heritage in her songwriting. Incorporating the sweet melodies, that are the trademark of the Irish musical heritage, with observations of Australia, along with her personal experiences, Maria has blossomed into one of Australia’s premier songwriters. Her first album - “Will You Dance With Me?” - features the title song, written for a friend’s wedding, that has become a theme for weddings, in Australia and internationally, by Maria’s original and various cover versions. The trend, in Maria’s writing, to incorporate both her Irish origins and Australian sensibilities, are heralded by “Waltzing Matilda, My Darling” - a song about the torn spirits of the immigrant to both their country of birth and their adopted land, Australia. Her sophomore release, “Dark Island” like the title, exhibited noir attitudes, as Maria broached topics such as child abuse, the innocence of childhood, and family relationships. Already blessed with an angelic voice, Maria has grown into a masterful interpreter of her own material, able to totally connect the feeling of the music and words to the emotion of the song. Since relocating to Trentham, in rural Victoria, Maria has begun to incorporate more of the wonder and fragility of the Australian bush into her work. Throughout her career, Maria has toured constantly, performed at numerous festivals and built a solid and dedicated fan base, both in Australia and internationally.
                                  
As a pioneer of highly sophisticated English concertina song accompaniments Steve Turner stretches the boundaries of traditional forms, with one of the best voices in the business. He is a multi-instrumentalist, who accompanies himself on the cittern, and also plays mandolin and banjo.  Steve began his career on the Manchester, UK folk scene at the end of the ‘60s, with the Geordie band “Canny Fettle”, touring with them for eight years and making two albums with them.  In 1979 he won the UK Melody Maker’s national “Stars of the 80s” competition, which persuaded him to turn professional, and for the next twelve years he toured solo, nationally and internationally, releasing four albums with Fellside Records during this period.

Jackadder’s Music Club was formed in August 2003 at the time that the West Australian Folk Federation was discussing ways to promote 'live' Folk Music in the community. 

The club encourages ‘live’ family entertainment and is run by Carmel and her husband Eric.     

Jackadder’s has grown since its inception and an average of 50 people attend each month.  There is a great variety of both professional and amateur performers taking part and often young performers are included in the afternoon’s line-up. It is a great opportunity for like minded musicians to network, build friendships and share their love of music.  

People of all ages enjoy the shows and are encouraged to join in by the performers. Our oldest performer to date was eighty nine and the youngest seven except for the performing pooch 'Poppy' who was only five!!   All styles of music are encouraged and verse is also popular at the club.

Adults only $12 and children FREE Afternoon tea included
