Up close and personal with some of Australia’s best singer-songwriters

As the weather starts to warm up and restrictions start to ease, we’ve been busy behind the scenes planning for our next few months of live performances.

The chance to see big-name artists in a smaller, more intimate venue was incredibly popular during our Fireside program and we’re now delighted to announce a whole new series of Supper Club events with some of Australia’s best female singer-songwriters.

From 17 Oct to 28 Nov we’ll present a series of Saturday nights in our Lakeside Room with tickets including the performance and great food making it an easy, relaxed evening out.

After her sell out show during Fireside, the irrepressible Dami Im kicks things off on 17 Oct as she celebrates the release of her new single Paper Dragon, a big, bold anthemic tune that was planned to be her Eurovision 2021 entry.  When Eurovision was cancelled Dami knew she still wanted to release the song at a time when ‘we need something fun and colourful and happy.’

‘I needed to write again, and just really process what I was thinking about during this time,’ said Dami, who used our lockdown period as an opportunity for introspection, creating new music resonant with new beginnings.

‘It has been hard for so many people during Covid, including myself, to stay creative and positive. I have been writing every single day, though within our industry, everything’s changed, a lot of people are devastated, dreams are broken, and we’ve all had to shift and readjust to this new normal. I guess I wanted to release a song that’s hopeful and a bit of fun, and also as a way to express myself through lyrics that declare, I am strong and I’ve always been strong.’

We can’t wait to welcome Dami back to our stage and she’ll be followed by Supper Club evenings with Sarah McLeod, Katie Noonan, Megan Washington and Sahara Beck.

It’s no exaggeration to say these intimate concerts will sell out so you’ll want to get your hands on tickets while you still can.
