This year is flying by at an amazing rate, and Esperance’s local music scene has been bursting with golden happenings.

Now we look forward into the heart of the cold and the general lethargy that accompanies Winter in Esperance.

Though, before we pull on the woollen gloves and move into hibernation mode, we have a very special gig to announce.

Ash Grunwald will be taking to the stage at the Cannery Arts Centre on Friday, May 25 in an event that promises to alleviate those Winter blues. 

Ash needs no introduction, having been a mainstay of the Australian blues scene since the early 2000s.

Over his career, Ash has released eight albums and received five nominations for the ARIA music awards.

Groovy riffs, driving rhythms and powerful howling vocals are set to blend in a live show that draws the audience into Grunwald’s world holding tight until the last.

The Cannery Arts Centre, Cole Bishop and KyzaPresents have come together to make this event a reality, further pushing the boundaries of what the Cannery Arts Centre is able to offer the Esperance community.

John Ratcliff and Grand Casual round out the line-up, entry for the event is 18 years and over and all performances will take place within the main gallery.

Tickets are limited and will be available from www.trybooking.com.

Grunwald’s performance would not be possible without the support of two fantastic local businesses, G.J. Gardiner Homes and Wells Building Designers and Consultants.

This one is going to sell super-fast, so make sure you grab your tickets while you can.

A busy weekend is on the horizon with some great live music to be had on the local front.

On Friday, April 27, be sure to swing down to The Travellers Inn and catch Campbell Garratt, Jace Bratten and Kyza from 7pm onwards.

Saturday, April 28, will see another amazing event kick off at The Cannery Arts Centre from 3pm.

Keep the Doors Open Mic is a Cannery Arts Centre fundraising event that is set to coincide with Brodeine and Deines end of Summer Sale.

The Open Mic Sundowner is being held to raise some much needed funds for The Cannery.

Entry will be just $5 and attendees are welcome to bring their own food and drinks.

Some very interesting fundraising ideas are being bandied about, so expect a super fun afternoon.

Then, to carry on into Saturday night, head down to The Esperance Motor Hotel from 8pm to catch Time Currie, The Archie Dudas and Kyza.
