One is good with his fingers, the other is good with his mouth. Beatbox sensation and one-man orchestra, Tom Thum joins forces with bohemian singer-songwriter, Jamie MacDowell, to form a truly unique duo. Armed only with a guitar and a versatile voice box able to convey any instrument, this show eschews cynicism, exudes joy, and defies expectations. Be part of an extraordinary evening of sound with some of the most exciting music makers in the country.
FRI 09 + SAT 10 FEB, 2018
Courtney has been under the covers with many, but not usually in front of a live audience. It’s time to get tucked in with all your favourite songs that have been covered in one way or another by all your favourite artists. Lay back and enjoy the caress of those romantic satin sheets as she strips some songs down, and flips others on their back to show you just how gender fluid a great song can be.
