Fancy a threesome this Friday night (17 October)? [At the Merry Muse]

By Overheard - 15 October 2008 41

Friday October 17: Shiny Bums Singers, Canberra Union Voices and Ecopella

Shiny Bums Singers are a vocally inspiring and visually entertaining group of mostly public servants who sing their own wicked parodies about the working life of the Australian Public Service. They routinely stray into political satire but never sedition. Based in Canberra, the Australian bush capital, they have performed to packed houses at the Australian National Folk Festival for most of the last 9 years, including this year.

No subject in the workplace is safe from the finely honed fingers of the group’s talented writers, no song immune to their unique style of parody

Canberra Union Voices is a community choir who this year celebrated their 15th birthday. They sing a wide and varied repertoire of songs – songs of solidarity, songs of struggle and songs of survival; songs about women, politics, corporatisation and bastardisation. They sing songs from Australia, Africa, Italy, Spain, East Timor and the Pacific Islands. And they sing because they love to!!

Ecopella is an environmental choir that sings about the beauty of our world and the struggle to protect it from exploitation and destruction. We serve the environment movement by providing activists and audiences with the opportunity of enjoying a high standard of a cappella singing.

Members of the Canberra branch will be joined by choir director Miguel Heatwole and a few interstate Ecopellans.

Merry Muse at the Australian Polish White Eagle Club, 38 David Street, Turner (a five-iron from ABN).
$15/$12 members and concessions. All starts about 7.30pm.
