Frencham/Smith plus The New York Public Library, Friday 8 February

Friday 8 February 2008 – Frencham/Smith at the Merry Muse

Frencham-Smith are Liz Frencham (Jigzag, Dev’lish Mary), and Fred Smith (Fred Smith) together in a unique collaboration which blends Liz Frencham’s voice and double-bass with the internationally acclaimed song-writing of Fred Smith. With Liz’s earthy warmth and Fred’s sharp wit, these two consummate performers take their audience on a trip full of humour and heart through life’s little ironies. They have released two acclaimed albums together and are a major force in the Australian folk scene.

There is no other folk duo in Australia that comes close to their magical combination. Sydney Morning Herald, 2007.

Special Guest: the New York Public Library
Sydney-based band the
New York Public Library have been delighting audiences for over 30 years with their unique mix of hard driving bluegrass rhythms, closely blended three-part harmony and spontaneous madcap humour. Although they use a line-up of traditional bluegrass instruments (five-string banjo, mandolin, guitars and string bass) the Library don’t limit themselves to one music genre, switching happily from bluegrass to folk, to contemporary country to the inspired lunacy of a Samba that went very, very wrong.

The Merry Muse at the Polish White Eagle Club, 38 David Street, Turner. Thursday 24 January. Doors 6.30pm, support 8pm, main act 9pm. $15/$12.

Fred’s one of my favourite performers ever! Soapbox is my favourite CD. And “Open Country” is one of the best Australian songs ever written. Fred Smith rools!!
