Sunday 25 September: Tony Burt and Karen Jones

burt-and-jonesTony Burt and Karen Jones bring together a unique blend of instruments and music that crosses the boundaries of Celtic and Americana traditions.   Tony has adapted airs and fiddle tunes for the Dobro and weissenborn to accompany Karen’s exquisite harp performance and blistering paced guitar fuelled Scottish jigs.

Meanwhile Karen took up the challenge to adapt the Celtic guitar style and apply it to fast rousing bluegrass, Americana tunes and Tony’s original compositions.   The idea was experimental at first to see how the Dobro and Celtic Harp sounded together and the rest is history as together they bring a fusion of music and performance not to be missed.

Find out more on their profile, and here they are on YouTube.

Note the different day this month – Sunday, not Thursday.

From 7.30pm at Roseneath school hall, Maida Vale Road, Roseneath. Entry $15 Acoustic Routes members and students, $20 non-members

Sunday 11 September: Open Mic in Newtown

In the upstairs room at “The Office” bar in Newtown’s main street, Riddiford St, just south of the intersection with Rintoul St. Those of you who have been there before will know it’s a great space for live music, free of the usual cafe clatter, but with drink and food available from the bar downstairs.
