Our Closing Soiree

Our Closing Soiree

The Soiree’s have been well patronised in past festivals. This festival the Soiree’s producer, Ian Main wanted to do things a little differently. In consultation with the festival organisers he has put together a wonderful evening of food and music. This event will showcase the world class local talent we have on our side of the Fleurieu.

The ever-popular Russell Sisters namely Jenny, Susan, Elizabeth and Margie, share their music and songs from several genres, including rock, folk, R & B, gospel and country. Seeing these four women, hearing them harmonise, and feeling the joy of their onstage presence is uplifting and entertaining. Being with them at the festival finale will be a wonderful way to celebrate the closing of this great festival. They will be accompanied by John Mulholland who injects quality guitar sounds to this feel-good act.

The Cape Jervis Trio (Anne Toner, Gillian Hunter and David Corkill) are performing a collection of original and classic songs which invoke growing up in an era of the 1940s and 1950s. Inspired by the lino cuts and literary works of South Australian icon Barbara Hanrahan and her book Scent of Eucalyptus, they weave a nostalgic and evocative story through song, spoken word and visual cues. The Trio’s gentle style immerses the audience into a time when our lives felt more connected to nature and our loved ones.
