Kurrajong's Music in the Village to replace Park event

Kurrajong Community Forum's Music in the Village – a series of six events across six weeks -featuring jazz, blues, folk and indie performers - replaces the Music in the Park event which had to be postponed after the February 2020 floods and then the impact of Covid.

“We didn’t give up hope," said organiser spokesperson Lyn Ward.

"After a bit of a rethink, we’re bringing you Music in the Village. Working with our village cafes, taking advantage of their outdoor areas, it will be delightful to hear music in our village and the whole village will be buzzing with hopefully more visitors and locals coming out.”

The events kick off on Sunday March 21 at The Village Kitchen with Daphne Webb & James Key, an acoustic duo who started making music together after meeting at WSU Kingswood. They’ll play popular songs from across the decades, and folk tunes.

Wil Linder will be at Schembrae’s at Kurrajong on March 28. Will is a young Hawkesbury singer/songwriter who will be performing a range of classic country and rock hits and he'll also throw in a few of his original tracks.

Easter Sunday, April 4, will see the talented Blue Sherlock duo playing in the garden of Common Ground Cafe. Blue Sherlock's Willem and Jeremy say they are on a mission to spread good vibes with indie-folky-bluesy-grooves. Blue Sherlock are currently recording their second original EP.

Back at Schembrae’s at Kurrajong on April 11, Mady Disbray - who won 2020 Hawkesbury Australia Day Community Arts Award, will play a mix of music, including pop, folk rock and soul. Mady is an acoustic singer/songwriter and has played at many Hawkesbury venues.

Divinia Jean will be at The Village Kitchen on Sunday April 18. Divinia describes her style as a ‘mishmash of genres’ and her indie-folky-jazzy sound has, among other things, taken her to the Sydney Blue and Roots Festival, the Tamworth Country Music Festival and her proudest achievement has been supporting for Dragon. Divinia is also a talented songwriter.

What happens when you mix blues standards with hard grooves and a smattering of modern pop? You get PBT. A band committed to grooving blues with a twist. PBT has been playing pubs, clubs, parties and community events since 2018 and they’ll be playing at Common Ground Cafe on Saturday April 21, wrapping up the six week music festival.

This event is being supported by Hawkesbury Council and Bendigo Bank.
