ADAM HARVEY & BECCY COLE ANNOUNCE NEW DUETS ALBUM AND NATIONAL TOUR

ADAM HARVEY & BECCY COLE ANNOUNCE NEW DUETS ALBUM AND NATIONAL TOUR

While the entire music industry was re-emerging from a difficult few years, Beccy Cole was suffering one of the worst years of her life personally. Adam Harvey suggested that cutting an album with an old friend could be the best medicine… and The Great Country Songbook Volume 3 was born (out Sept 9), which will be backed up with a national tour.

“A few months ago when I wasn’t doing so well, my friend Adam Harvey checked in on me every week or so,” said Beccy in a beautiful post on social media. “He asked if there was anything he could do and I said ‘you could tour with me again, they are my happiest times.’ So he changed his year around and orchestrated this whole project. He said if I got better he would tour with me till the bloody wheels fall off! That’s what you call a friend.”

Adam, likewise, couldn’t be happier about touring with his good mate. “Going on tour with Beccy Cole is like going on a rollercoaster ride at the amusement park. Its unpredictable, scary at times, amazing, and so much fun! I have to admit the tours I have done with Beccy over the years have always been my favourite’s and I can’t wait for this one to start.”

Recorded at the Music Cellar on the NSW Central Coast with engineer Jeff McCormack and devotedly produced by Adam and Beccy themselves, The Great Country Songbook Volume 3 is about two best friends getting together again to record some of their favourite classic country songs.

Over a period of 20 years Adam and Beccy have run circles across this big brown land – having toured Australia together a dozen times. Country music fans always regard the opportunity to see these great mates on stage together as a real treat and an absolute highlight. Fans received a taste of things to come when the inseparable pair recently hosted the 50th Golden Guitar Awards, leaving the audience in stitches.

Since that first tour 20 years ago Adam has built a landmark career – half a million album sales, Gold and Platinum albums, 9 x Golden Guitar awards and a CMA Global Country Artist award. Not
something to be sneezed at. To boot, his recent #1 ARIA album, Songs from Highway One took home the gong for Traditional Country Album of The Year at the 2022 Golden Guitar awards.
With such a storied life it’s no wonder Adam is currently working on a book titled, Tales from The Road; a collection of stories from Adam and his country music mates chronicling some of the funny,
inspiring and downright scary things that have happened on tour over the years.

Beccy has enjoyed similar success with her unapologetically authentic brand of country music. 11 xGolden Guitar awards to her name (including 5 x Female Artist of the Year), multiple ARIA Top 10
Country and Top 40 Mainstream albums, a Top 10 DVD, 3 x Gold-certified releases, and more than a dozen #1 Australian Country singles. The singer-songwriter was also awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) this year. “It feels wonderful [to be recognised]. It’s incredible. It’s visibility for the arts, for country music, in particular, and for LGBTQI+ community.”

Don’t miss Adam Harvey and Beccy Cole in concert performing some great tracks off their new album along with plenty of old favourites. Come along and enjoy a fantastic night of music, stories and
humour, which is guaranteed to have you singing along and in fits of laughter!

Earth Frequency Festival 2024

 

Earth Frequency Festival is a music, arts, lifestyle and environmental festival based in South-East Queensland, Australia, with a strong focus on arts, education, healing and community spirit.

While drawing from many cultural niches such as transformational festival, tribal gathering, doof and boutique festival, the aim of Earth Frequency Festival is to go beyond these traditional tags and to exist as a multi-faceted gathering focused broadly on creativity, connection, intention and inspiration.

From it’s origins as a small landcare party in 2005, Earth Frequency has now become one of Australia’s foremost transformational gatherings.

At Earth Frequency, you can always expect an amazing mixture of live and electronic music, performance, visionary art, workshops and lectures, a family and kids space, a fantastic food and markets area, and of course a positive community vibe.

Our aim is to create nothing short of a life changing, transformative experience! We aim to provide a meeting place – people from many different backgrounds, ages and walks of life come together with the shared interests of music, nature, technology, culture and peace.

Earth Frequency Festival is held each year at Ivory’s Rock Conventions and Events in Peak Crossing. Ivory’s Rock is a beautiful outdoor venue with top notch facilities, comfortable campgrounds, and it is conveniently located under an hour from Brisbane and just 20 minutes from Ipswich.

Nurtured by the setting of the beautiful Australian outdoors, we gather together once a year to celebrate life with music, art and other creative forms, and to educate, connect, heal and inspire.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • When: May 3-6
  • Where: Ivory’s Rock Conventions and Events, Peak Crossing.

Black Box – A new Australian Musical based on a true story

Black Box – A new Australian Musical based on a true story

 

You don’t know him, but he may have saved your life.

Black Box is Queenslander Paul Hodge’s ground-breaking new musical based on the extraordinary true story of David Warren, the Australian inventor who created the black box flight recorder that is now on every plane around the globe.

Driven by the death of his father in an unexplained plane crash when he was eight, Black Box follows David as he fights for an invention that could record the final moments of a flight before it crashes – the black box. His obsession around this invention places his career, marriage and mind at risk. It’s a show about memory, and how we hold onto, and let go of, those we love.

Black Box writer and composer, Paul Hodge, said, “David’s invention was inspired by his love of music. I wanted to create a theatre form that was as inventive as David’s idea, which led to the use of recorded voices and music, in the same way the black box gives recordings, to immerse the audience in David’s sound world.”

Black box inventor David Warren will be played by internationally renowned singer and actor Michael Cormick, who has had leading roles around the world, including in Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast with Hugh Jackman. David’s wife, Ruth, will be played by Helpmann Award winner Helen Dallimore who as well as touring extensively throughout the UK and Australia was the original Glinda opposite Idina Menzel in the West End production of Wicked.

The auditory world that inspired David to create his life-saving invention shapes the audience’s experience at Black Box, which utilises pre-recorded voices and instruments to create a world of music and memory to tell his story. While Helen and Michael are on stage, the rest of the cast are present through a history-making audio experience.

Black Box is the first binaural musical with audience members wearing headphones that allow them to be totally immersed in a 360-degree world of sound.

Binaural recording uses two microphones, arranged at the position of human ears to create a 3D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the recorded actors and instruments. This world-premiere production will be directed by David Berthold.

Go4Fun Free healthy lifestyle program for families in Tweed, Coraki and Grafton

Free healthy lifestyle program for families in Tweed, Coraki and Grafton

 

Families in NSW can access support to build healthy habits together, plus tips and assistance with getting active, healthy eating and wellbeing.

Go4Fun is a free 10-week after school program for children aged 7-13 and their families, which aims to support their health and wellbeing.

Parents and carers can now enrol their primary school aged children in the Term 2 programs in Tweed, Grafton and Coraki.

Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) Acting Director of Integrated Care and Allied Health Services, Kathryn Watson said the program is for kids and their families who want to get healthier together.

“For many families, the focus is on just getting by on a day-to-day basis, and many don’t have the money to invest in healthy lifestyle programs,” Ms Watson said.

“We know many parents can be overwhelmed by the amount of healthy lifestyle information available. Go4Fun helps by providing easy tips to make healthy changes and involves parents, carers and children in activities to help put these into practice.

“This free program allows families to have the chance to learn healthy habits, and have fun together.”

The program includes games, activities, prizes and a supermarket tour. It also helps families and children to connect with others in their local area.

“Families love that the program is free and that it helps their child’s wellbeing, including their sleep. It creates a space to connect and build relationships as a family,” Ms Watson said.

“For families who are not in the Tweed, Grafton or Coraki areas, the Go4Fun online program is always an option.”

Parents and carers can sign up to the program directly, and health professionals and GPs can also refer their patients.

Places are available for Term 2 in the following locations:

  • CORAKI
