Expresso with Kathy & Matthew Clarke

Sunday 26 November 2017
6 – 8pm in the Church Dungeon
FREE entry. Food & drink available to purchase.

Our final Expresso guests of 2017 are Kathy and Matthew Clarke with ‘Sweet songs and soft guitar’. Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar is a vocal duo based in Newcastle NSW.

Kathy and Matthew Clarke perform songs of Love, Hope, and Caring for the environment and each other. Kathy’s stunning vocal clarity is supported by Matthew’s gentle guitar style. The set list includes pieces by Snez, Bernard Carney, Eric Bogle, Paul Spencer, Rick Kemp, Kate Rusby, Malvena Reynolds, Tom Paxton, Bruce Watson and a smattering of original works.

The name “Sweet songs and soft guitar” is inspired by the lyrics of Eric Bogle’s song “Kate and the Dreamtime Land” referring to the beautiful ambiance of session music and songs around the camp fire shared with friends.

Sweet Songs and Soft Guitar is an uplifting experience in the folk tradition. A wonderful relaxed evening to close a great year of music and story-telling at Expresso.

FREE ENTRY. Food and drinks available to purchase.
