FOYER FRIDAYS RETURNS IN NOVEMBER!
You asked. We listened. Foyer Fridays is back! As Woodville Town Hall’s local and live music series returns for a special spring event with a double-billing fit for the occasion on Friday November 6.
For the one-off free live gig, we will welcome Max Savage and the Lofty Mountain Band and The Yearlings to the Foyer Fridays’ stage for an intimate evening of local music at our historic 1920s venue with two of the state’s most compelling ensembles.
Hip shaking, foot stomping rock ‘n’ roll swagger, Max Savage draws influences from blues, country and the great American songbook to tell stories of heartache, redemption and loneliness. With the Lofty Mountain Band, he brings soaring harmonies and intricate melodies with mandolin, guitar, banjo and violin.
“It’s been a pretty upside-down year, so it feels good to be getting back to a semblance of normalcy and playing music, particularly somewhere as historic and beautiful as the Woodville Town Hall,” Max said. “The Yearlings are one of my favourite bands and I’m so excited to be able to do this show with them.”
Intimate, raw and powerful, the Yearlings are Chris Parkinson and Robyn Chalken. With a career spanning 18 years, five albums and performances around the world with the likes of Jeff Lang, the Punch Brothers and Justin Townes Earle, they distil life into music with strength, grace and quiet, unhurried power.
Foyer Fridays kicked off in May of this year as a livestreamed music series curated by multiinstrumentalist and composer Adam Page to entertain everyone stuck at home during Covid with captivating local and live music. It returned for a second series with acclaimed acts such as Nancy Bates, MANE and Charli Umami headlining, with each gig livestreamed and featuring a live audience capped to just 60 people.
The upcoming summer event will allow up to 150 lucky audience members into Woodville Town Hall to witness Max Savage and The Yearlings perform this special one-off gig but people will need to reserve their spot via Eventbrite. Please note: this will not be streamed, so music lovers will need to attend Woodville Town Hall to witness this gig.
City of Charles Sturt’s Mayor Angela Evans said Foyer Fridays had been a “fantastic opportunity to showcase our local artists and musicians as we re-opened our doors to Woodville Town Hall and brought life and energy back to our community”.
“We remain committed to supporting live music in our community and Foyer Fridays has provided an opportunity for our artists to perform, keep local music playing during the pandemic and has seen overwhelming support from our community,” she said.
Doors for Foyer Fridays open at 5pm and the first band is on at 6pm. The event is free, but to register, go to Foyer Fridays’ Eventbrite page.
