You don’t have to be a masochist to enjoy ‘FIVE OF THE BEST…’

Those who lived in the ‘Good Old Days’ would remember ‘Six of the best’- A painful experience for sure.  Those days are thankfully past but the Illawarra Folk Club is about to give music lovers ‘five of the best!’

This Friday 1st October will see the coming together of five great acts at the Diggers Club in Wollongong.  There’ll be a combination of the new and the old, the familiar and the innovative and the traditional and the contemporary.

Best of all it’s still only $10, $15, It starts at 7.30pm, Coopers on tap, restaurant is open, the Mystery Performer will be there and so will I so hope to see you there.

Bigruss

Get Folked are the new faces of old music.  Combining traditional Irish, Scottish and medieval music with other folk influences alongside their own unique style, Get Folked are three odd folky blokes.  From the streets to the stage, to the folk session at the pub, they’ve played their music throughout Sydney and continue to do so, with major folk festivals and the release of a CD in the near future.”

Jim Low is a singer/songwriter who lives in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.  It is said that he creates and sings songs that get to the heart of the story, entertain and beg to be listened to again.  He has a deep interest in Australian history having written books, articles, and school learning materials on Australian themes.  Jim has performed in clubs, restaurants, concerts and festivals and his music has appeared on a number of CD’s

and been played on ABC radio.  ‘Above the Creek Bed,’ his new CD of original songs.

Kenny Bartley is a singer/songwriter from the northern Illawarra.  Originally hailing from Perth W.A he has been performing his brand of Aussie folk since the late 90’s.  His songs are of a story telling nature and are often amusing.  Kenny can make you laugh, cringe and cry with personal tales of life.  With a career spanning over 10 years Kenny has supported the likes of Mick Thomas, the Waifs and more recently Jigzag.

As well as playing many a pub and beer garden he has played in the famous spiegel tent at the Adelaide fringe festival, the Nanup folk festival and the 2010 Illawarra folk festival.

Cj Shaw is one of Australia’s most entertaining and forward-thinking musicians.  Over the past ten years he has moved from strength to strength, performing at weekly residencies, on regional tours and headlining shows in both Sydney and Melbourne.

In 2009 Cj Shaw started a regional touring circuit aptly named the TUNESINBLOOM Xpress. The tour exclusively uses public transport to visit regional towns across NSW and Victoria.  For this tour Shaw is sponsored by Countrylink, who provide the transport for the tours.  So far the TUNESINBLOOM Xpress has visited over twenty towns.  These shows are proving to be a hit with the regional audiences and his support is growing across the state.

AZ-I-AM is Chris Wilson and her Gentlemen folk, Bob McInnes, Johnny Spillanne, Ray Marshall.  Az-I-aM formed in  July 2007 for three concerts to be performed at the Illawarra Festival January 2008.  Such was the reponse, both audience and performers left wanting more, hence we are still around.  At this point in time there are no C.D.’s for sale. So the only way to hear Az-I-aM, is to catch them live in concert.

Admission is still an amazingly low $10 (members) $15 0thers.



This Friday a group of young musicians from Canberra, some of them former Wollongong Conservatorium students and all from the ANU Jazz Course, are presenting a gig at the Con.  There are no acrobats involved but there will definitely be some energetic and original music.

FILM & THEATRE

Gerringong Pics & Flicks Inc.
“Me & Orson Welles”
Friday 1st October

On Friday 1st October Gerringong Pics & Flicks Inc. present “Me & Orson Welles” [Rated PG]

Review by Margaret Pomeranz

After Tim Robbins’ 1999 CRADLE WILL ROCK we return once more to the Mercury Theatre in New York founded by Orson Welles in 1937. And it’s in that year that ME AND ORSON WELLES is set, just as Welles – played by CHRISTIAN McKAY – is putting the final touches to his production of JULIUS CAESAR. Seventeen year old high school student Richard Samuels – AC EFRON lucks into the role of Lucius. Richard has a lot to learn and Welles’ assistant Sonja – CLAIRE DANES – is a mine of information…

It’s a new world for Richard, backstage with other actors like the libidinous Joseph Cotten – JAMES TUPPER – and uptight George Coulouris – BEN CHAPLIN – and with an increasingly harried manager, John Houseman – EDDIE MARSAN – but it’s Welles who is the one who opens Richard’s eyes the widest…

This completely delightful film has at its core a mesmerizing performance from CHRISTIAN McKAY as Welles, he not only looks incredibly like Welles’, he captures the man’s knowing capricious arrogance deliciously. The film has been cleverly adapted from a novel by high school English teacher Richard Kaplow by filmmaker Richard Linklater and there is wry affection for Welles’ world and for Welles’ himself in the work. There is a subplot that frames the film concerning a relationship between Richard and an aspiring writer played by Zoe Kazan that is also sweet.

This coming-of-age story, compressed into one week of Richard’s life, is an exhilarating ride, a witty, fascinating insight into one of the towering talents of last century, the talent that propelled him, the talent that surrounded him. It’s one of the best experiences you’ll have of the theatre in film.
Further comments

MARGARET: David?

DAVID: Well, I’m fascinated by this period, of course, and this material. Orson Welles was such a giant figure of cinema and of theatre and of radio, as well.

MARGARET: And it’s so precocious, because he’s 22 in this film.

DAVID: I know. Yes. Yes. And Christian McKay gives a wonderful impersonation of Welles. I think you couldn’t find better. The other one I thought they got spot on was Joseph Cotton. I thought George Coulouris, the actor who played George Coulouris, was nothing like, at all, George Coulouris but…

MARGARET: Well, they’ve just got to encapture, though, the reality of the character, really.

DAVID: He got the character, I think. Yes. Yes. And John Houseman wasn’t so – Eddie Marsan’s John Houseman…but, look, I found this totally fascinating. I really enjoyed these insights into Welles. I loved scenes like the trip to the radio station in the middle of all of this because he has to do his Shadow radio show.

MARGARET: Isn’t that beautiful. It’s so funny.

DAVID: So it is totally, totally fascinating and…

MARGARET: Well, I believe that this was so researched, , with photos from the time.

DAVID: Yes. Absolutely, yes.

MARGARET: …and with people who were there at the time, it’s as accurate as you can get.

DAVID: Yes. Yes. They’ve got everything as close as they could.

MARGARET: I loved this film. I really just loved it. I’m giving it four and a half stars.

DAVID: I liked it a lot. I’m giving it four.

We would really appreciate your support in spreading the word through your Region and to all your members. It is a fantastic opportunity for emerging as well as established filmmakers to showcase their work.

Many prizes being offered to this year’s winners including for the winning team, one member will be sent to the international championships and joins the World Best of the 48 Hour Competition held annually in the USA! The 2010 best of screenings will be held in at The Miami International Film Festival

events across Australia.

If you are looking to develop your spontaneity or want to explore the

RED POINT WEARABLE ART SHOWCASE

A Viva la Gong Festival Event

Come along for a fabulous night of fun, creativity and awesome entertainment. The showcase involves parades of fantastic garments; art that can be worn on the body. Local artists have crerated garments that reflect our journey through time as well as the theme of the Viva la Gong Festival,’stories of land and sea’.

We have blended these garment parades with some outstanding acts to bring you a unique variety show. The line up includes members of Circus Wow and Half High Circus performing a charming medieval court dance on stilts as well as a sparkly hoopin’, jugglin’, ball- walking, handstanding fling. The wonderful Wendy Reagan will amaze you and don’t miss Heidi Hillier back from her excellent show in Sydney’s fringe festival.

Singing  for us will be Phoenix regular Nora Jenkins, Fox Lea and we’ll enjoy the fabulous harmonies of the ‘Acoustic Women’ of Wollongong. We’ll also be treated to the dance moves of Zoe’s Dance Group and begin our journey through time with a look at country with an Indigenous dance. To complete our cultural immersion we’ve added  a touch of contemporary poetry from Bronwyn Lang.

What a fabulous line up! So come visit Port Kembla, birth place of the Illawarra, and join us on a surprising journey through time during this year’s Vival la Gong Festival. Much thanks to all our performers, Wollongong High School of the  Performing Arts drama students and Wollongong City Council’s Cultural Services for grant funding.
