Sydney The Folk Musical PLUS Andsome Friends

8:00pm, Fri 17 June, 2022

Event Details

A feast of folky frivolity, full of fun-filled original fongs about Fydney, penned by Clark Gormley, PLUS acappella choir Andsome Friends.

Sydney The Folk Musical is an extravaganza, spanning 10,000 years and 658 suburbs, featuring a live folk band and a Greek chorus, performed by a cast full of Morris dancers (from Sydney of course) and filled with songs penned by Clark Gormley. The cast is flying high after a successful one-night season at Newcastle Fringe Festival.

Andsome Friends will be up first. Andsome Friends is an Australian a cappella group formed in 2009 in Sydney to record and perform Miguel Heatwole's original compositions and arrangements. They supply tuneful answers to some of the important philosophical questions of our time. How many medieval TV themes from popular culture can a group sing simultaneously? What would Palestrina have written for the Hunters And Collectors? Is it wrong to sing Irish slip jigs with Australian words? The songs are contemporary but there is a good measure of the past in our sound. Their fugue about environmental waste minimisation is unashamedly Baroque.
