Perth Folk and Roots Club

The next Perth Folk and Roots Club at the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club has been planned for Sunday 1st September 2019 with the support of the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club and City of Stirling. The performances are from 5pm to 8pm at the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club, 1 Stancliffe Street, Mount Lawley.

For this event, the Perth Folk and Roots Club has Up and Adam and Green Herring. ‘Perth Folk and Roots Club looks forward welcomes Up and Adam and Green Herring to performing at the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club‘, said Keith Anthonisz, President of the Perth Folk and Roots Club.

Up and Adam is a local Western Australian Clawhammer banjo player, uniquely different in his playing style and presentation. Up and Adam’s style is influenced by old time, mountain style, traditional American folk and roots music. Up and Adam also has a big voice to go with his mountain style music. This emerging artist tells his story with original songs and obscure covers and promises to take you places that you may not expect a banjo to go. Up and Adam also has a collection of banjos including homemade rustic banjos that add to the atmosphere of connecting to a by gone time of mountain folk. Up and Adam live performances include playing at the Roleystone Musicians Club, FolkLore WA, Fremantle Gaslight Club and the Ravenswood Hotel Folk festival.

FolkLore WA review of Up and Adam noted, “Armed with a collection of banjos, each one as unique and effective as the next, Up and Adam invokes sounds from a forgotten era that oozes heart, wisdom and soul. Joyfully delivering tales with sounds that erupt deep from the heart of the Appalachian mountains, whilst still sounding fresh and exciting.”

Green Herring, originally called Prhyme is made up of Lee Goodall and Irma Lachmund, an acoustic duo, both playing mandolin and guitar. They write and songs about the environment that aim to inspire people to take action for a better world. They have previously performed for Perth Folk and Roots Club in Guildford and Mt Lawley and have also performed at Bridgetown Blues Festival and the Bony Mountain Folk Festival and the Nerum Creek Music Festival in Queensland. Green Herring is currently planning release of a CD before the end of winter 2019.

‘As always we are also looking for up and coming artists to do a few numbers for the audience’, Keith added.

Please note the Inglewood Bowling and Sports Club is hosting the Perth Folk and Roots Club as a free event for its members and guests with memberships offered at a very reasonable cost to Perth Folk and Roots Club supporters.
