Bruce will be singing songs from his new CD, Mosaic, plus some old favourites as well.
Cathy would love to give up her day job and spend more time singing, playing and songwriting but the need to eat is likely to keep her from that decision for a few years yet. She started playing guitar and singing at around the age of 12 and has indulged in music as a hobby ever since, fitting it in around the aforementioned day job and her union and other political activism. She’s progressed from teenage years busking with pops songs, through playing Irish tunes with work colleagues and calling dances with a bush band, to finding a happy conjunction of singing and activism with Sydney choirs Solidarity and Ecopella. She also likes to hang out at folk festival singing sessions and has even penned the odd (VERY odd!) parody. Now she’s taking her chances in a solo performance at her favourite folk club.
