Spicy Fruit Chutney plus Alternate Route at The Merry Muse

Overheard 11 February 2008

Did you know that Spicy Fruit Chutney goes off?

It can do if you don’t put the lid back on properly.

OK, so there are as yet undiscovered tribes of Amazonian mud men who predicted that joke was coming.

Back to the music. Spicy Fruit Chutney come from the South Coast… unless they’re playing there and then they pretty much stay on the South Coast.

There is a point, people, and I’m getting there slowly. Spicy Fruit Chutney is a lively Celtic Folk/Rock band, based on the NSW south coast (told you), playing original songs, their own arrangements of traditional tunes and songs from Ireland, England and Scotland and musical arrangements with Klezma, Cajun and Middle Eastern influences.

Supported by Alternate Route, the four Gibsons (Dad = James, Mum = Rita, Kids = Amelia and Rohan). Alternate Route, a dynamic family band, that explores the byways of Australian folk festivals and performs an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary tunes and songs. Check out the website for an alternat(iv)e band name (unless the webweaver’s been told and it’s been fixed to an alternat(iv)e title…)

The Merry Muse at the Polish White Eagle Club, 38 David Street, Turner. Friday 15 February. Doors 6.30pm. $15/$12. Kids free (with a paying adult). www.merrymuse.org.au
