at The Petersham Bowling Club


Come and join us on THURSDAY 1 APRIL to be spellbound by three amazing live original music acts ….



Julia Johnson plays the same menagerie of traditional folk instruments she has played since she was a child. But the past few years have seen her explode her usual approach to making music and then sew it back together with threads of sonic experimentation. 

Her voice has been compared to Florence Welch, Joni Mitchell and even a 'treacherous mountain river'. 

Julia is a TripleJ Unearthed awarded songwriter who has supported iconic Australian artists including Courtney Barnett, Tim Rogers, Jen Cloher, Bob Evans, and Pete Murray as well as performing at folk and contemporary music festivals such as National Folk Festival and Groovin The Moo.

“Love the playful guitar plucking and that lilt of Julia’s voice” – Zan Rowe, DoubleJ

“This confidently straddles the lines between slightly folk-tinged, rustic sounds and a bright-eyed pop sensibility, with good lyrics to boot.” Al Newstead, TripleJ



Charlie & Jensen is a musical conversation between acoustic artists Hunter Beasley and Luke Wright. They journey through genres, shifting from vocally charged original songs, to virtuosic instrumental tunes, taking a stripped-back, raw approach to music and performance. 

Having toured Australia many times, including with Italian and World Music sensation Unavantaluna, Charlie & Jensen have also pleased crowds at some of the country’s favourite Folk & Bluegrass Festivals, including The National Folk Festival, Cobargo, Dorrigo and Tamworth Country Music Festival. 

Their musical chemistry is evident in their self-titled album, a collection of recordings, unedited and undeniable which saw them at the Golden Guitar awards with two award nominations.

Little Clouds are a subtly nostalgic, feel-good singer-songwriter duo from Sydney. 

Nick Henderson & Emily-Rose Sarkova write lofty afternoon inspired hits and introspective midnight bangers, laced with clever lyrics and sweet chords that make you feel real good. And let's be honest - we are all in it for the feelings. 

They move unassumingly between their multi-instrumentalist personalities of guitar, bass, piano, keys, synths, accordion and vocals. It is intimate. It is real. Journeys will be had. 






Tickets are $20 and must be booked in advance. 

All patrons must adhere to covid safe practices and check in upon entry. The venue has a limited capacity and we appreciate your cooperation remaining seated and socially distanced at all times.



We don't want anyone to miss out on the soul-filling experience of live music therefore volunteers receive a free ticket in exchange for assisting on the night. We are most happy to exchange tickets for other services including social media/ marketing, photography, door person duties etc. Let's talk!

Local artisanal beer and wine will be available to purchase along with the most medicinal of spirits. The bistro will be open to cater to your tastebuds with a smile.

The Petersham Bowling Club is a family friendly venue in Sydney's inner west that supports live music with gusto and is proudly pokie free. Run by local volunteers who keep the veggie patch colourful and cold glasses overflowing, the heart and soul of Petersham is at 77 Brighton St and has an interesting story. We are proud to support this iconic venue and keep the disco ball spinning.


This is a Covid-safe show.  Pre-sale tickets only. No walk-ups.

Under 18s are welcome at the Petersham Bowling Club but must be accompanied by an adult.

The Petersham Bowling Club acknowledge the Gadigal of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which this show takes place and pay our respects to their Elders past and present, and emerging and extend those respects to the First Nations peoples of NSW and beyond.
