Seven Gables concert
TEFC at Government House
A 3rd National Folk Week Event
The Seven Gables story ...
Twenty five local musicians recorded a brilliant concert under the stars at Government House, Darwin as a 3rd National Folk Week event, capturing a fine collection of contemporary and traditional music as well as some uniquely Darwin sounds.
Performers included Chris Pemberton, a stalwart of the folk scene, delivering dry Aussie humour; with finger-picking; Peter Bate & Tony Suttor who have been playing together and with TEFC for over 30 years; a capella harmonies from Mixed 4 Tunes; traditional Irish tune-sets from Murphy & friends; Brenda Cubillo Williams presents music with a uniquely Thursday Island flavour; the Darwin Ceili Band provide some delightful traditional tunes & songs. One of the highlights of the concert was the inclusion of the Rondalla String Band - such a joyous noise, surely the music of angels...
One of the players from the Rondalla
Band is Gabe Hazelbane, who first played for an NT Administrator at Government
House in Darwin in the 1930's - and now again more than 60 years later.
The TEFC wish to thank His Honour The Administrator, Mr John Anictomatis
and Mrs Jeanette Anictomatis for permission to stage and record a 3rd National Folk Week concert at this historic venue.
