Fairbridge Festival and The Sewing Room team up for an intimate and unique experience, bringing the acclaimed music festival to the heart of Perth City. taking place within the walls of the newest Perth music venue and nightclub, The Sewing Room. Bringing Fairbridge Festival to the CBD for the first time with UK group Sheelanagig and local outfit Junkadelic.
Sheelanagig have become something of a West Country institution for the past decade. A quintet with a well-stocked armoury of stringed instruments – guitar, fiddle, double bass – and a bagful of joint jumping tunes, these boys sure know how to get a party started. Putting both groove and stomp into a selection of traditional and original European folk music dating from the medieval times to present day, it’s difficult – nay, impossible – for your limbs to remain stationary when you’re within earshot of them in full flight.The fact that they often play with a knowing wink shouldn’t obscure their impeccable technique, virtuoso-standard ability that raises the roof in every place they play. Expect fun, a lot of laughs and some great music.
