Where are you? : Venues
A regular youtube event hosted by Josh Fergus and Fernando Aragones from their Manly Beach house.
Their goal is to share the talents of an array of local performers and artists, and with professional video and audio production, their output always makes for compelling viewing.
Originally a folk club in the 60′s, and later the 80′s, the Shack was revived again in 2006 by Trevor and Kathleen Swadling, Rhonda Mawyer and Paul Robertson to the great delight of Musicians and Lovers alike.
It started the trend which now continues to grow around the Northern Beaches of sydney and beyond, of creating a space where enjoyment of the music is paramount . . . where musicians of all descriptions are rewarded for their gifts . . . and where people can meet safe and warm, bring a bottle of wine, and be a part of performances intimate and true.
Held in the Tramshed community centre in Narrabeen on the first Saturday of every month. Doors open @ 7pm for a 7.30 start. tickets are sold at the door for $20/15.
Paul Robertson and the others are also the creators of the Northern Beaches Music Festival.…
A favourite of most musicians I know who’ve played there, the Manly Fig continues to be a special event month after month. Steve and Robbie and the crew have created a really special space where the crowds are warm, the musicans are comfortable, and magic happens.
Bring a wine and nibbles, get there early for a good table and enjoy. Doors open at 7.30 for an 8pm start. Held in the Manly Village Church (across from the Police Station in Manly)
Continuing the fine tradition of The Shack and Manly Fig, the “wharf” is something else. Hidden away round the corner of the Central Coast, this is the perfect night out, and worth the drive if you’re from town.
As with the others, bring a wine or beer and nibbles, get a table, and enjoy!
Held @ Wagstaffe hall on the 2nd Friday of every month. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30 start.
2 years old now, this festival will no doubt grow quickly to be a premiere event on the Sydney musical calender. Held on the beautiful Narrabeen lakes on the Northern Beaches, this festival showcases some treasured acts from all walks of life, and adds the quirky little personal touches often lacking in the Major Fesivals.
