Yes more music in 2010 at the Cockatoo Cafe

This time we host Jane Thompson, James Rigby and The Rainmakers on Saturday October 2nd. No strangers to the folk music scene, you might remember Jane and James from Blackwood, Vocal Nosh sessions, the Accafellas and since a long distance trip around Australia, their family band the Rainmakers.

The Rainmakers have been described as "An Australian family band with Elsie, and James Rigby, and Jane Thompson. Three glorious voices in exquisite harmony, they sing provocative and endearing songs: original compositions which bringing their landscape , issues and environment vividly to life; world music repertoire; a rich mixture of accapella arrangements to songs accompanied by guitar, fiddle, ukulele and maracas. Bringing the warmth of the Australian sun, wry humour and not one drop of rain to the stage." In the words of song writer Enda Kenny:Everything they touch turns to gold.

You can hear samples from their CD at Incidentally the last music night was quite an event with Continental Drift and it was a great occasion to catch up with many friends.
