FNQ MUSICAL TALENT SHOWCASE AT TANKS UNPLUGGED – TONY HILLIER’S WORLD OF MUSIC MAY 3 2013

04 May

This weekend is the first Tanks Unplugged music event of the year – at the Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns. The Tanks combines with http://www.entertainmentcairns.com  proprietor Ray Elias to showcase some of our far north Queensland musical talent.

CHRIS WIGHTONCairns singer songwriter Chris Wighton is on the bill – Chris has been confined to a wheel-chair since a horrific mountain bike accident last year, but he’s still making  music. Chris has supported touring acts at the Tanks, he’s a Tablelands Folk Festival veteran and has performed at Woodford Folk Festival. He’s also been a regular performer at Rusty’s Market in Cairns. His songs are a powerful blend of humour and social conscience, energy and insight.

DENNIS ROSE DOES KEN'S SONG BARTALUMBA BAY

Dennis Rose is one of FNQ‘s best known singer songwriters. He has a knack for capturing the feel of our tropical northern home in his songs, the best known of which is Yarrabah – a song about an indigenous community just across the inlet from Cairns. Dennis performs regularly around the Cairns and Port Douglas areas.

HILLBILLAlso appearing at Tanks Unplugged – The Hillbilly Goats. This band in action is a joy to behold — bringing new life to the old-time music re-popularised by the movie O Brother Where Art Thou. The Hillbilly Goats perform regularly around FNQ – do yourself a favour & check them out http://www.hillbillygoats.com.au/
