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 http://www.makingmusic.com.au
