GET EXCITED, FOYER FRIDAYS RETURNS
You’re invited to next week’s Foyer Fridays where you can catch some of Adelaide’s most exciting musical acts – such as Charli Umami, Corey Theatre and Hannah Yates
together for one night only on Friday 21 August.
To reserve a spot for this free and intimate live music event, check out Foyer Fridays’ eventbrite page and register. And that’s it. And if you’re one of the first 60 people to register, you’re in! Then all you have to do is head to Woodville Town Hall after 5pm on Friday 21 August to watch some of this state’s most promising emerging musical talents in the form of future soul artist Charli Umami, blues and roots singer/songwriter Corey Theatre and folk and soul singer Hannah Yates.
The live music event is limited to just 60 people in Woodville Town Hall’s charming 1920s foyer as we continue to ease out of Covid-19 restrictions. If you can’t make it, it’s all good, we’ve got a YouTube livestream for that.
For Charli Umami – who has collaborated with artists such as Jus and Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani – the upcoming gig is her first since Covid-19 hit Australia and the Where the Water Used to Run singer can’t wait to perform again.
“There is nothing that can compare to connecting with people, especially in such an intimate setting,” Umami says. “I write my songs for the people of the world,to inspire and uplift, so having a live audience means everything.” Umami, who is also one-half of Planetself with Inkswel, will be joined on stage by Inskwel and they will perform new and exclusive Charli Umami and Planetself material, including her upcoming single Ley Lines
Joining Umami on the bill are Corey Theatre and Hannah Yates. Originally from Victoria, Theatre is a Gunditjmara-Belgian artist who now calls Adelaide home. He released his debut album Ngathuk Ngalina in 2017 and he draws on community knowledge and historical documents to revive the Gunditjmara language – which has not been spoken fluently for close to 100 years – through his music as well as writing and performing in the local Kaurna language. Yates is also creating an album with the purpose of preserving the
Kaurna language and culture of the Adelaide Plains.
You definitely don’t want to miss this. All the essential details are below.
