Starts 7:30 pm

Award winning songwriters and well loved in Victoria and throughout Australia, Mandy Connell and Girl Friday head to New Zealand to make new friends and see new horizons.

Mandy Connell

Mandy Connell has a striking voice and an immense command of her space. A strong story teller, Connell is completely spellbinding, leaving no doubts as to her skills with words, and with her handmade guitars The front woman for Stray Hens, and host of a video series featuring chat and duets, "An Otherwise Quiet Room", she offers us a full set of her own work.
"One of my favourite Trad voices anywhere" - David Francey
( Best Contemporary Album 2016 CFMA)
'Mandy Connell is the latest in a long and distinguished line of talented female musicians to grace the musical scene in Australia. A fine songwriter, she also has the knack of taking other people’s songs, and making them her own, the mark of a truly gifted performer.'..-    Eric Bogle.

Girl Friday

Girl Friday (Tracey Hogue) with her folk, jazz and blues sensibilities evokes a sense of nostalgia, innocence and melancholy. Her rich, soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics remind us that people have felt and sung about the same things forever and a day. Girl Friday's arrangements mark her out as a talented writer on ukulele and guitar, and it's her evocative, tender style that has us in the palm of her gently strumming hand.
Winner of Roddy Read Award,
“Girl Friday is, in my opinion, the 21st century’s answer to Cole Porter with her clever turns of phrase and melodic hooks. We met at a show in 2015, where she was playing 'Summertime' (a song I don't like) on ukulele (an instrument I don't like). She knocked me dead, she was brilliant and I have been a fan and friend ever since “ - Hugh McGinlay (Author and singer/songwriter)
