BRUNSWICK ARTISTS' BAR // DOORS 4PM // SHOW 4.30PM
Sally Ford and the Idiomatics play songs of life, love and lived experience. This newly formed ensemble emerges from the multi-faceted musical provenance of its members, with backgrounds in cumbia, salsa, film music, ska, jazz, pop and funk.
Patrick Cronin and Michael Havir provide lush backing arrangements to Sally Ford’s wryly-observed lyrics. The underscore of keyboards, samples and electronica is embellished by trombone, saxophone, flute and even a spot of old-fashioned whistling.
These musicians bring to The Idiomatics their collective legacy of leading or performing with bands such as the ARIA-winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra, the Spaghetti Western Orchestra, Texicali Rose, Yothu Yindi, Sally Ford and the Pachuco Playboys, Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows, Frank Yamma and Skazz.
Original tunes and freshly interpreted classics come together in this richly imagined musical experience.

ANUSHKA in the WOODS
...Follow the trail of crumbs, along a winding path deep into the woods if you dare...
Anna Simic and Dave Evans are the power duo: ANUSHKA in the WOODS
Their shared musical performance history spans near a Century between them.
From the Great Hall at the NGV, Adelaide Fringe and Church's nestled in the NSW wilderness, Melbourne is their home base, where they have collaborated for many years.
A new suite of songs have been co-written and their debut Album is soon to be released.
Songs arrive like fire and linger like smoke, or creep up and invite you in. This is Folk Noir, dream state imagery comes alive with surreal twists and turns to warm your heart and tap your toes. Their live shows energize the soul.
DAVE EVANS - Piano and Accordion
