Shimbo Darktree Sessions and Concerts in Australia (26) RE: Sessions and Concerts in Australia 29 Oct 05

Fe fi fo fum. Fresh blood by gum!

Every Wednesday night excepting Christmas week and New Year week (i.e. the next one after Christmas!) Kookaburra Folk happens at the Kookaburra Cafe in Given Terrace, Paddington (an inner suburb of Brisbane) from 8:00 pm to 11:00 pm. It is floor-singer style, and we don't mess about with auditions etc. So we get good, bad, and indifferent - although, strangely enough, the bad is rare, and the indifferent is the MC (that's safe - it's me!), with the rest varying between good and bloody wonderful. FREE ENTRY - can't get cheaper than that (except the performers do it for love - and I haven't received mine yet!). All welcome to join in as and when it suits. Totally unplugged. What else would you like to know?

If you need more, or wish to contact me when in Brisbane, my email is or phone 07.3376.2037. If you would like to perform, we work on around 5 songs/20 mins (up to) but are flexible with visitors (love them with a side salad). Visitors often get preferential treatment, as we like variety. Just see me when you arrive.

We are not hidebound about what type of folk, or whether it is trad, and have even had accordionists (shudder), music hall (our original founder loved that), country, and 60's nostalgia. No Morris dancers yet, but there are no depths to which some people will not stoop!

Love to see any of you who are visiting our lovely city of Brisbane. And now my name has been published, does this mean I have to be nice to people?
